This great gag toy is the original “Yakity-Yak Teeth” from the 1940’s. The teeth are mechanized and are wound up on the bottom. The teeth chatter and roll around. The original box is awesome!

This 1950’s Royal Crown Cooler is really cool. I love the colors and the fonts especially. It even has a built in bottle opener on the side.
