Just Why Are
So Great, Anyway?
ANIMALS are the greatest plastic prizes of all time!
There is no better set for entertainment value, and ALPHABET
ANIMALS are fairly easy to collect, as far as 1950s prizes go.
So, even someone starting today can collect ALPHABET
ANIMALS. (I only started seriously hunting
ALPHABET ANIMALS less than three years ago.)
Granted, to make it easier on myself, I have asked many friends to
help find ALPHABET ANIMALS prizes for me. But, there
are still plenty of ALPHABET ANIMALS in the wild for anyone
willing to hunt them down.
With its 26 shapes, 52 if you count both the Type I and II sets, the set of NOSCO ALPHABET ANIMALS is the largest series of plastic stand-ups ever produced for Cracker Jack. In fact, it is one of the largest plastic series ever. With the endless number of colors available in ALPHABET ANIMALS, there is plenty of collecting to be done, even for the advanced collector. This set of plastic prizes has often been overlooked by veteran collectors, because most have already completed their type set of one of each letter from "A" to "Z" and moved on. This is a very sad state of affairs! That is why I will continually strive to learn new and amazing information about ALPHABET ANIMALS and bring it to this site, to get the word out about the greatest plastic prizes of all time.
In addition to the fact that it is a large set with neat colors, ALPHABET ANIMALS have to make you wonder one thing -- "Why did they use THAT! animal?" I am fascinated by the fact that some of the animals that were used are ones I've never heard of before studying this set. Where on earth did "Ibex," "Nilgai," and "Xerus" come from? And why would you use "Alpaca" instead of "Alligator;" "Gnu" instead of "Giraffe;" and "Moose" instead of "Monkey"? The answer is simple -- somebody was trying to be different! Different is good -- that is what has made this a great set of alphabet prizes instead of an average set. Besides, plenty of standard animals were used to keep us grounded and safe, so that we would not feel too strange about our hunting expedition. We can find "Cows," "Deer," "Foxes," "Jaguars," "Kangaroos," "Lions," and other normal animals with which we are comfortable. That is the beauty of this set. There is something for everyone -- the adventurous as well as the cautious.
At this point -- or, perhaps, sometime before this point -- some might say I've taken this obsession too far. Well, sure. I am certain that I have taken it further than anyone else would, but I am just getting started. Actually, I have a motive to pique collectors' interests in ALPHABET ANIMALS. If more people collect them, then there will be more people with whom I can trade. Don't you think that is a good reason to further the sport of hunting ALPHABET ANIMALS? But, more importantly, I hope you will share with me and others any information you learn about ALPHABET ANIMALS. And above all, remember that this is all for fun. Now have fun!
