    CokeKid-04
    (184 items)

    Back in September I bid on a few items in an online auction. This and one other item ended up being affordable.
    To my surprise, the cardboard item opens up to reveal a cowboy and indian riding horses. The phrase says "Don't Grasp handle tightly - - Swoop downward to produce explosion. If paper snap breaks cut another same shape and paste on." Copy written 1954 Spotswood Spec. Co. Lexington, KY. I did not follow the instructions as to not damage the piece. Cool item with a little engineering.

      Nice piece! I forgot all about paper snapping toys. I wonder if I remember how to fold one!?

      Ok people, I'll be the one to ask. How does it work ?

      Thanks Gonavy!

      blunderbuss2, I believe you hold it loosely like a gun. Then you raise it up, then quickly bring your arm and hand down. Should open the end up exposing the graphic and making a BANG sound (or a little snap from the paper). Not exactly sure, but that’s how I understand it.
