In 1966 the Topps Chewing Gum company put out the “Marvel Flyers”. There were 12 Marvel Flyer styrofoam gliders, but Spidey was obviously the sexiest one of all.

For a mere dime (half the price of a loaf of white bread) you could have hours of fun zinging Spidey through the air

And got $1.20 you could have the whole set

Instructions:
1. Insert wing and tail.
2. It flies!
(Note: step 2 does not say “throw”)

1966 must’ve been fun
