Jingle Ball by Vanguard

This is something I can't believe actually survived.  It is called a Jingle Ball, and is a rubber ball with a bell inside of it.  It must have been meant for very small children and the fact that this has survived all these years essentially untouched is amazing.
It has deflated somewhat (you would too after 65+ years), but is still bright and colorful, and the rubber is not degrading at all (yet).  The back of the ball is a solid red color.
Believe it or not, I have actually seen another example of the Jingle Ball, with a blue back.
The Jingle Ball was manufactured by Vanguard, and according to the original campaign book it retailed for a whopping 29¢.
