plastic binoculars

Digging in our backyard, we found a tiny pink plastic charm in the shape of binoculars. On one lens barrel it says "Made in Hong Kong." On the other is what seems to be a serial number: 58-335. Does anyone know if this is from Cracker Jack? Thanks!

Hi and welcome to our forum! I can't think of any Cracker Jack prize like the binoculars you found. If it is tiny, it most likely came out of a gumball or peanut machine. If you could scan a picture of it, it would help. What a cool find, though! Our yard has yielded a little plastic dog and lots of clay marbles, even though we are only the third family to own it since 1899 and the only family to have young children. Old timers tell us that our corner lot was a popular stop-off point for kids coming home from school in the 30's and 40's because an old retired milk delivery horse lived in a barn in our neighbor's back yard. We cherish the things we find!
