Monster Magnet

This Monster Magnet from 1964 was one of Wham-O's lamer toys released during the golden age that brought us the Frisbee, Hula Hoop and Super Ball.



Looking more "Genie" than "Monster", I'm sure it's appeal didn't last long with kids. I mean how many times can you stick a magnet to something before you get bored.



The magnets in each hand of the "Monster" are fairly weak-kneed.  They claim it can lift 20 pounds, but I have my doubts.
