    Description

    Beatles Vintage Twig Toy in Original Packaging (US, 1964). An interesting little game consisting of two red wooden dowels and two plastic spinners with a repeating printed "Beatles" pattern, inside a sealed 4" x 12" plastic bag with an instruction card bearing images and facsimile signatures of the Beatles. The text repeats on both sides, as does a drawing of a young lad with a Beatle haircut playing the game which the package proclaims "Only You and the Beatles Know How It's Done." This example is missing the shorter of the two dowels, which appears to be a factory packing mistake as the bag is sealed exactly as others seen at auction. A substitute for the original shorter stick could easily be fabricated if one wished to open and play with the toy. Otherwise, it's still perfect for display. Excellent condition. From the Uwe Blaschke Beatles Collection.
