  • Fallout Shelters
  • Surfing
  • Lava Lamps
  • The Twist
  • Mood Rings
  • Sea Monkeys

35
Sea Monkeys
  • In 1957, Harold von Braunhut discovered a true
    freak of nature and recognized its potential to
    become one of the greatest marketing
    opportunities in history. After watching the
    creature known as Artema nyos, a relative to the
    bryn shrimp. Out of water it would appear dead
    and once introduced back into water it would
    mysteriously come back to life, without any
    suffered ill effects. He then began to sale them
    through mail order, around the early 1960's,
    packaging them in a box labeled "Instant Life"
    and they were sold for .49 thought comic book
    advertisements. The fad kept growing and now 40
    years later, his freaks of nature are still
    charming kids everywhere.

36
The Twist
  • Chubby Checker made this dance style very popular
    when he appeared on American Bandstand in the
    early 1960's. It originated in a small New York
    club called The Peppermint Lounge in 1961. The
    dance was featured in a few films in the early
    sixties but quickly faded when other dances such
    as the Mashed Potato and the Watusi were
    introduced to TV shows and movies.

37
Lava Lamps
  • 1965 - Wow! Groovy lamp, man!
  • In the mid-sixties, LAVA invited a generation to
    turn on (their LAVA brand lamps), tune in, and
    drop out. The introduction of the Century LAVA
    brand motion lamp started it all. Originally sold
    as the Astro Lamp, with its large gold base and
    tiny holes, it produced a simulated starlight
    that was definitely far out. The Century's Medium
    was the Message a 52 ounce globe containing red
    or white blobs and yellow (some called it mellow
    yellow) or blue liquid.

38
Surfing
  • California surf music and films like "Gidget"
    made it cool to ride the waves, and all those
    beach party movies made us wish we could have an
    endless summer, too.

39
Mood Rings
  • The famous black oval ring that changed colors
    when the mood of the person changed. As the moods
    of society changed, someone thought we needed a
    way to monitor this change. Tada - the birth of
    the mood ring.

40
Fallout Shelters
  • With the threat of a nuclear war on the horizon,
    some Americans looked for ways to protect
    themselves from horrible destruction. They
    decided upon bomb proof, fallout shelters. Most
    looked like basic units, providing space only for
    necessities (which were generally only two-week
    supplies) while others looked like small
    guesthouses, equipped with pool tables, paintings
    and wine cellars. The fallout shelter fad reached
    its peak in the early 60's as the Cuban Missile
    crisis loomed. But it was waned in the 70's as
    various treaties were signed, calming apocalyptic
    fears.

41
Ouija Boards
  • First brought about after many viewed the movie
    "The Exorcist", where a young girl was possessed
    by the devil while playing with a Ouija board. A
    once thought dangerous game that in the late
    1960's outsold the venerable game Monopoly.
    Thought to believe that we could communicate with
    the dead through a Ouija board, the game was born
    in the mid nineteenth century brought upon by a
    spiritualism craze that sweeped through Europe
    and spread to New York.

42
Superballs
43
Troll Dolls
  • Troll DollsCreated by Thomas Dam, the inventor
    of the Dammit doll, names after Thomas. The dolls
    were established into a company called Dam Things
    in 1964. A year which more than one million of
    these trolls were sold in the United States. The
    doll was made for his daughter, cause he couldn't
    afford to buy her a birthday present. The doll
    was inspired by the legend of trolls whom
    inhabited deep dark forests and brought good luck
    to the human that could catch one. It would seem
    many humans at that time were catching them.
