Pink Magic Window

My dad sent my sister’s favorite old toy in a care package. I wanted to look it up on the net but I couldn’t think of what it might be called or even how to describe it. Luckily, the product name was molded into the clear plastic case in very small raised lettering, “MAGIC WINDOW.” Behold our glow-in-the-dark model Wham-o Magic Window:

Of course I had to take some shots in the dark:

And then I had a moment of inspiration, but had only one window to take long exposures without waking baby or mommy:

I am taking very special care of this new/old toy. I don’t know where or when my sister got it, but it was probably made in 1974 or 1975.
FYI, it’s currently worth about $80 to $100 on eBay.

    L’il Butthead used to argue with Tonkotsu-Boy about whose turn it was to play with this special toy, and I recall several bonks on the head to settle the dispute….
