• Short Summary

    New toys are seen at the Brighton Toy Fair.

  • Description

    Brighton, East Sussex.

    Various shots show new toys at the Brighton Toy Fair; a model train set; a kind of animated movie mirror, mounted on a record player - it looks like a zoetrope. Nice M/S of a woman putting on lipstick; she hands her mirror to a small girl, who uses it to put on her new lipstick that can be eaten when she gets bored of it! The girl plays with a small puzzle game with sweets in it.

    Other amusements are a money box; a rocking horse mounted on springs; a small metal-framed stock car; a V-X Rocket is pumped up to be launched on the beach.

    Note: on file are several notes on toys and exhibitors at the Toy Fair plus correspondence.
