|Sam's Toybox Homepage|
I've started selling some of my toys & collectibles.
How cool are Candy Cigarette Banks? Cooler than words can describe. Here are two copies of the most popular such bank from Miner-Matic. My red copy actually has twelve vintage boxes of cigarettes in it, though I wouldn't try eating them if I were you. Both of my copies are missing the back, something that is very normal for this toy. I've only seen one up for bid on eBay with a back and I captured the two small images of the back from that auction. No date on my copies though I would guess the late 1950s or early 1960s. Neat stuff!
Other toys in my collection where you can get something for a penny: Vend-O-Mat Chocolate Cigarette Bank by Tell Chocolate Novelties, Chiclets Gum Machine Bank and Tootsie Roll Bank by Hasbro, and Coney Island Penny Machine by Remco. Other toys in my collection that promote lung cancer: Smoking Monkeys by manufacturers unknown.
