Everybody ( or Anybody ) ....remember these.
We had one and it seemed to come out when I was home sick from school in those days. The MAGNAJECTOR was basically a Toy Projector for Kids. It Magnified pictures placed underneath it. They were first made in the 1950's by RAINBOW CRAFTS INC of Ohio. That is the same company that invented and distributed "Play -Doh."
I remember putting pics we made or whatever -- and projected it on the wall ( or screen for that matter). It is all done with mirrors and light.
The PETER-AUSTIN MFG Co mark are the ones made in Canada, and the distribution of these and many other toys from the USA. From what I recall, the body is made of Bakelite.
This one is in working order but does have a crack on the side. But with it being 50 some years old, stuff happens.
Anyhow, hope you enjoyed -- and MAYBE you had one?
Thanks for looking :-)
