    And didn’t Boing Boing have the actual spaceship back in this 2007 article?

    I just bought The Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet and re-read it after a 40 year break.  What a great book (still).

    I sometimes wonder if I’m on a Submitterator blacklist.

    A while back I posted a link to  a Secret Fun Spot entry about the discovery of a NEW IN THE BOX Jet Rocket Ship:

    Honor House was a deep and disappointing ripoff. Their 6′ Frankenstein was an image printed onto a sheet of white plastic. Disclaimer: I made the purchase after a lying neighborhood kid said he’d bought one and claimed it arrived in a box- nope, it arrived in an envelope.
    /learned from that early ’70s experience

    I seem to remember a submarine, similarly advertised,& desperately wanting to bring it to the lake were we had the family cabin.

    I had this or something a lot like it in the mid-Fifties. My folks got it for me for Christmas. Hard to imagine that they would have ordered something from a comic book. Bless their hearts!
