Video games of the 1960’s

It’s true; they had video games in the 1960’s.

They were not computerized, but it was state-of-the-art at the time!

My favorite toy was the “Jimmy Jet” a toy flight simulator that would actually fire plastic missiles!

The box was sexist, it said that Jimmy jet was “For BOYS only”!

“Jimmy Jet" was sold in supermarkets and made by Deluxe Reading, manufactured from 1963-1966.

Here is the TV ad . . .I HAD to get one of these! As I recall, I wore it out.
