In 1953 Benjamin & Henry Hirsch, owners of a small cosmetic lab, discovered that the gas (carbon dioxide) created when baking powder comes in contact with water could be used to raise a submerged object. Delighted with their discovery they made a crude model of a submarine that could dive and surface & presented it to a major cereal company in nearby Battle Creek, Michigan. The rest is history.
Introduced in 1954 for twenty-five cents and one box top, the four-and-one-half inch long working model of the submarine U.S.S. Nautilus required three shifts to keep up with orders. By May of that year over one million subs had been produced and work was started on a two-and-one-eighth inch give-away version.
The success of the toy submarine transformed Hirsch Laboratories, the cosmetic company, into a premium company almost over night. Over the next seventeen years the Hirsch Brothers would create a long line of premium hits that would establish themselves as the undisputed leaders in their field. Their diving U.S. Navy Frogmen and working PT boat, both offered in two sizes, and the amazing Magic Moon Garden brought joy to millions of American children and adults alike.
Many toy & game patents do not typically include the name of the toy or game as we have come to know them. We have done research for each toy and game in order to 'label' them correctly so that they are more easily recognized for your customers. All though we rely on many resources to help us when we 'label' our patents, we acknowledge that there may be a few mistakes. This is where you come in. We welcome any information in helping us manage our archives if you notice an error or possible confusion in our listings. Please contact us with any additional information you may have on a specific toy or game so that we can do more research and make any corrections, if necessary. Thanks!
THANK YOU for taking the time to view our items. This started out as a little home business in preparation of being an empty-nester, and I am grateful that I have very little down time to enjoy the peace & quiet of our now empty home. Visits from our grandsons help keep the home alive now, but we sincerely appreciate every customer for helping us do what we love to do. ~Jandy
