WWF Viewmaster and reels gift set

Who didn’t have a View-Master as a kid? It’s one of the best, most beloved toys of all time, so I’m not surprised there were WWF reels made for it.

From 1985, here’s a “WWF Wrestling Superstars View-Master Gift Set” which came with a View-Master, and 3 WWF reels. The reels were also sold separately in a 3-pack.

I really don’t know how much fun it would have been to look at a bunch of still images of wrestlers… um… wrestling, when part of the fun of watching wrestling is in all the exciting moves they do, but I guess it’s a unique idea, anyway and an easy gift for Grandma to buy her wrestling fan Grandson.

Also… Hillbilly Jim in 3-D! 

Maybe they should have released WWF cartridges for the Fisher Price Movie Viewer instead? Then you could at least have seen the wrestlers in motion!

    Real Ghostbusters…like there was any doubt *I* would have them :-).They’re sitting up in my attic in a box with a Viewmaster viewer and other Ghostbusters toys and figures.

    Would have LOVED this though.

    I do not trust the words -Hillbilly Jim in 3D- from this site, I have my reasons…
