Are these Elroy Jetson’s gadgets or real toys from the Sixties?

Zoombots, Snooperscopes and Space Crawlers – which were real and which could only be found in Orbit City?

We think it’s fair to say that Elroy Jetson had some of the coolest toys of any kid on TV. After all, he did live in 2062. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t a wide variety of Space-Age gadgets and gizmos available to real kids who lived in 1962. 

We’ve taken 10 toys from the Sixties and mixed them up with Elroy’s devices seen in The Jetsons. The names come right from vintage advertisements or quotes from Jetsons episodes. Can you guess which of these are real Sixties toys and which are Elroy’s gadgets?

I missed the pizza question. Let that be a lesson to you. Never take a quiz when you're hungry.

9/10 - better than I expected since a couple of Elroy's toys looked like they could have eventually found their way onto the shelves

Notice that their car doesn’t have seat belts. They were just becoming popular in 1962 and not yet standard equipment.
