Transogram – 1961 Spring-Summer Catalog


For a large part of the 20th century, Transogram Toys and Games produced an array of toys, games, outdoor sports sets, and kid-sized furniture. This dealer catalog from 1961 illustrates the company’s diverse product offerings. Highlights include the Lance-a-Lot, a “play-safe polyethylene action lance,” the Aquasport Jr. Scuba Underwater Outfit, and the Eliot Ness and the Untouchables Sawed Off Shotgun.
