David Welch (pezdudewelch), World authority & author on PEZ, says:
"Rubons from 1978. Sheet is code dated. A lot of these were made as larger singles — one pic — and smaller doubles — 2 diff pics on same sheet. I have some doubles from Japan — Japanese lettering. Then I have same sets in English marked "Made in Italy". Thanks DW"
Thank YOU, David! Helpful as always.
As you can see, these came from the files of a PEZ distributor.
"Free Rub-transfers in each PEZ-unit. 12 different designs. The new money-maker from PEZ!"
Above: the double sheets. Below: the single sheets, in Japanese (top rows) & in English (bottom rows).
The iconography is very Japanese, so I don't think these would have been widely available outside Japan.• Next Page: Dickmann Jubilaeums Rubbel Aktion Pinocchio  →
