Remote Control Figure!

batman_remotefigure60s

The seller of this thought it was a 1960s item, but it looks similar in principle to an AHI Spider-Man toy, making it a 1970s toy in my estimation!

Magic Squares!

Wow, that's just slightly better detail than Lite-Brite, eh?

Batman Suspenders!

Merry Christmas!

And I hope you're able to wrap your presents in wrapping paper as cool as this stuff:

And what good is wrapping paper without some cool tags?

Batgirl Underoos!

batman_batgirlunderoos

Whenever I come across Underoos like these, I can't help but think how many adult comics fans out there wish these were made in a size their girlfriends or wives could wear for them!

Toastee Socks!

batman_toasteesocks

If you can't get those Batman slippers I posted photos of a while back, I'd imagine these would keep your feet warm... if they can fit your feet, anyway!

Japanese Tattoos!

I sometimes think that the Japanese people experienced a higher level of Bat-Mania than the USA did back in '66!

Knockoff Sunglasses!

Bat-Mask? More like sunglasses, and a complete unlicensed mess of a product!

Superbaby Batman!

Amsco produced the Superbabies toys in the 1970s, although in other countries, Marx had the license.

I can't help, though, when seeing the box with the blurb saying, "I'm Baby Batman," I always think to myself (because it would be weird to say it out loud), "No, you're not.. you're blond, and Batman/Bruce Wayne has black hair."

Vintage Swim Ring!

batman_swimring

Wow, this is a rarity... a vintage swim ring that still holds air! Probably came out around 1966 or so.

Stain Painting Set!

batman_sp_paintset

This Stain Painting set, as you can see, was produced as part of the whole Super Powers merchandising blitz of the 1980s. I'm not really certain what "Stain Painting" is, myself!

Sparkle Gun!

Great card art, but a pretty bad Batman toy, if you ask me!

Stickers!

Here's some stickers!

batman_stickers.JPG

While Batman, Robin, and other characters from the Batman titles dominate this batch of puffy stickers, if you look close, you'll see a few Superman and Aquaman stickers, too!

I'm sure these stickers weren't licensed... but they don't exactly say "Batman," do they?

Slingshot-Launched Flying Batman!

batman_slingshotfigure

I've said it before, and I'll say it again... I do not understand why there have been so many flying Batman toys made!

Street Signs!

These signs were probably part of the blitz of merchandising surrounding the release of the first Batman movie!

Pencil Sharpener!

I think I may have posted a photo of this one earlier, but this one is larger and clearer!

"Robot Raiders" Knock-Off Toy!

batman_robotraider

Click on this image for super-size viewing and look at the parachutist... obviously, it's intended to be Batman, even if the toy is called "Robot Raiders"!

Push Puppet!

This is a pretty cool-looking push puppet... although I'm guessing when you push the button under the base it just looks silly.

Press-Out Book!

batman_pressout66

This 1966 book should really be reissued... it's a great papercraft concept, and I keep hoping I'll stumble upon some blog or website where someone's scanned the pages so I can print 'em out and build these things myself!
