Top Value Family Gift Catalog (PART1)

Highlights from a 1963 Top Value Stamps family gift catalog, the main focus here being on the super neato use of stuffed puppet people posed with the merchandise on a variety of pages (if only these were available to purchase as well, I'd definitely buy the creepy knife wielding chef!) More goodies from this catalog in our next post too!

I think that's kinda cool that they used stuffed dolls for the ads

Absolutely Jil, I only wish they had used more puppets! The next scans coming up from this catalog are more about the great design choices and other fun photography elements. Thanks for the comment!

So neat! The scary chef with the knives is an instant fave, but the maid with the coffee pots is a very close second.

If you had both dolls you could create a great murder scene in the kitchen puppet show for the youtoobers!
