I just completed my set of alphabet tilt cards this year thanks to a Cracker Jack friend.   Whether you call them "flickers," "tilters," "wiggle pictures," "groovy movies," "tilt cards," or "lenticulars," everybody knows that means cool action, change, or 3-D effects on a flat printed surface. Lenticular technology was used in Cracker Jack prizes from the 1950s to Present. Naturally, this is my favorite set of lenticulars. Magic Motion is a Trademark of the Optigraphics Corporation.

Cracker Jack Stickers

Box Series #21 (1980s)

The first variety has numbers and letters to "make your own Mini License Plates." The second item, "Computer Alphabet Stickers," says, "Peel off letters to spell out names, initials, etc. Brighten up cards, notes, toys!" I wonder why the Computer Stickers prize has the statement, "Caution: Do not stick on wallpaper or furniture," and the License Plates doesn't. I guess there just wasn't room. Sorry, I haven't opened any of these yet, so I cannot show you the inside of one.
