Betty Bubbles, the Shimmy Shaker

illustration from a 1944 novelty catalog - USA

    This is the newest and hottest Shimmy Dancer on the market and will sell like wildfire. Consists of heavy printed cardboard with real silk brassiere over her natural looking breasts. When manipulated from the back the action is most realistic. No rubber used in the construction of this article and will last indefinitely.

    That's quite a novelty item, especially for 1944. Kind of reminds me of those pens that you turn upside down for some type of action to occur. A Shimmy Dancer, indeed!

    We actually have one of these at home. Found it in my neighbor's house when she moved, in a heap of junk she was tossing.

    It would have been even cooler if you could squeeze her belly and her boobs would pop out!
    Get a patent on that somebody! Then send me 2$ for some lotto tickets....
