Detailed description on our website.

Jiggle your way to non-sport nirvana with this entertaining and unusual 1950-1951 Jiggleys collection. Produced by the Model Airplane Company of Brooklyn New York, this interesting series consists of die-cut cards with a pop-up design and stands stapled to the reverse. Obverse art images alternate between deadly force and humor, while the reverse side is printed with suggested use instructions and brief subject matter text. Jiggleys cards were issued in two distinct series with Western and Circus cards numbered 1-30 and Secret weapons aka Military Series cards numbered 31-60, all with a die-cut feature that when pushed out and stood up could be jiggled from side to side.
