The Linoprinter by Mattel allowed you to publish your own newspaper. It came with various printing plates that went at the top of the page and you created your own type using "Dymo-type" label maker tape. Of course the interesting thing is that the tapes you created had to be reverse so that when inked and applied to paper the words would come out correctly. Very cool toy. Item number 4400 dated 1964.
