Souvenir Friday- Aurora Airplane Model With Free Trip to Disneyland Contest Form
Looking at the pictures of today's souvenir, you would think that this is a model kit blog. However in late 1955, Monsanto plastics promoted toys made out of plastic. The promotion was a contest to write a fourth line to a jingle extolling plastic used in toys. The winner would win a family trip to newly opened Disneyland. I have seen the contest slip by itself, but usually do not see the box and toy. Also the sticker on the front of the box is nice with the castle graphic. Even if you did not win the grand prize of a trip to Disneyland, many of the other prizes are nice.
