I've never seen this toy before! Trying to figure out what 70's technology was involved. I wonder if Snow White actually showed up that clearly, or if she was more pixelated? Nowadays, kids would insist that wasn't Snow White, because it's not the Disney Princess version.
Not much "technology" involved here, it's a translucent (one-way) mirror with a plactic sculpted face behind it, and lights illuminate it to make it visible through the mirror.The REALLY cool thing is you could take it apart and replace the face with something scary and traumatize your little sister. Uh, I mean, uh, so I've heard. :)
I had one of these and loved it, i played with it all the time so my parents took it away and hid it thinking i was being brain washed or something. i found out where it was hidden and they broke it up and put it in the bin, quite traumatic for a small child to see a toy destroyed. it was really cool though, i would like one now purely for memory of my happy childhood. (does anyone know where i can get one?)
I also had one of these snow white mirrors. my best friend wanted one and because her mum & dad wouldn.t get her one, she broke mine and left felt tip pen all over the mirror part. we are NOT friends anymore. I loved it! what a nasty nerd she was.
