A daily look back at the toys, games, and objects that captured our attention as children and continue to fascinate us today.

Ouija Board from Parker Brothers (1968)

A 1968 ad for the Ouija Board game that featured the talking spirit board being used to answer important questions such as, “Shall I become a model, or fashion designer?” and “Should we go steady?”

Originally patented in 1891, the rights to the game were acquired in 1966 by Parker Brothers and transferred to Hasbro in 1991, as part of their acquisition of the company.

Remember the toys and games of years past through vintage advertising – for better and for worse!
