Sclemeel, Schlemazel, what the &%*$ is this?



A real good example of the "What the?" nature of rack toys, this set depicts Laverne and Shirely, two brewery workers as secretarys but also has some scale issues. Is this for dolls? Then why the gigantic calculator and pencil? if it's a role play item what's with the tiny, useless book case,  I'm getting a nose bleed...

This assumes that girls don't want action figures, so an action figure company thinks hmm, what do we know about females? Nothing. Lots of them are secrateries though!

Weird, for sure! I remember odd toys like this.

I Think that's about right.

Remember, it *was* the '50s, so portable calculators would have been about 4 foot tall back then.

I'm not sure where clipboard technology was back then, though, so that might be off a little.

A perfect opportunity for a brewery action playset ruined!

Could've doubled for the McKenzie brothers afterwards.
