DESCRIPTION
Remco Industries, Inc. was a new jersey toy company founded in the 1940's that was best known for toys marketed and sold in the late 1950s and 1960's, like the 'Johnny Reb Cannon', 'Mighty Matilda Atomic Aircraft Carrier' and the 'tethered Electronic Falcon Plane' that "flies itself". The company's slogan was "Every Boy Wants a Remco Toy... And So Do Girls!".

In the mid-1960s, Remco acquired several licenses for popular culture groups and TV shows ("the munsters", "lost in space") and proceeded to make a variety of toys. in 1964, the company jumped on the beatleMANIA band-wagon by acquiring licensing rights from brian epstein's nems enterprises, and produced the incredibly popular beatles rubber "hair dolls". THIS NEWSPAPER AD FOR THE REMCO DOLLS IS FOR WOOLWORTH'S DEPARTMENT STORE, BOASTING THEIR PHRASE "WOOLWORTH'S IS YOUR BEATLES HEADQUARTERS":

FAB 4 COLLECTIBLES IS PROUD TO OFFER ONE OF THE BEST CONDITIONED AND COMPLETE SET OF ALL FOUR ORIGINAL AND INFAMOUS REMCO BEATLES "HAIR DOLLS", THAT REMAIN IN THEIR ORIGINAL BOXES. IT APPEARS THAT ALL FOUR DOLLS HAVE NEVER BEEN REMOVED FROM THEIR BOXES AND EACH REMAIN SHINY AND DISPLAY A VIBRANT GLOSSY SHEEN. EACH DOLL IS APPROXIMATELY 5" TALL WITH ROOTED HAIR AND APPROPRIATE MUSICAL INSTRUMENT STRAPPED AROUND THE NECK. THE DOLLS ARE STILL ATTACHED TO THE CARDBOARD INNER BOX INSERTS BY THEIR ORIGINAL RUBBER BANDS THAT HOLD THEM SECURELY IN PLACE.

ONE CAN SEE THAT THE GOLD METALLIC TRIM ALONG THE EDGES OF EACH INSTRUMENT REMAIN PERFECT. USUALLY, WHEN THE DOLLS ARE REMOVED FROM THE BOXES AND OVER TIME, THE GOLD PAINT IS SCRATCHED OR HAS PEELED OFF. THESE EXAMPLES REMAIN IN NEAR MINT "AS NEW" STORE STOCK CONDITION. WE HAVE SCANNED THE FRONT OF EACH BOX TO DISPLAY THE BRILLIANCE OF THE BOX ITSELF AND THE CONDITION OF THE DOLLS WITHIN.

EACH  BOX MEASURES 2" X 4" X 7" AND ARE INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT TO FIND - ESPECIALLY IN THIS CONDITION. ALL THE ORIGINAL CELLOPHANE WINDOWS ARE STILL INTACT, TIGHT AND CLEAR - EACH PRESERVED PERFECTLY. THE BOXES THEMSELVES ARE CRISP AND CLEAN, WITH THE USUAL MINOR 51-YEAR HANDLING AND SHELF WEAR. THERE ARE NO RIPS, NO TEARS, NO SPLITS, NO WRITING, AND NO PRICE STICKERS.  THE SPLITS THAT ARE PRESENT ON THE TOP OF THE BOXES NEAR THE CORNERS WHERE THE BOX TOP OPENS, ARE ACTUALLY  MANUFACTURED "TAB SPLITS" THAT LOCK INTO THE BOX ONCE CLOSED.

THIS IS TRULY A COMPLETE AND MAGNIFICENT SET OF THE REMCO “HAIR DOLLS” PRESENTED AND REMAINING IN THEIR ORIGINAL WINDOWED BOXES.
