Make My Daisy

How Daisy made it a Christmas to remember in 1966



Ad published in a “Boys’ Life” magazine in 1966 for the Boy Scouts of America
Gun gift ads for the family - Boys' Life 1966 issue for Boy Scouts of America

The original ad (above) was for Daisy Rifles and featured several products (i.e. the Spittin’ Image line of air guns) that were not available until the 1960s. Therefore, the ad below could not have been published in a Sears catalog in the 1950s.
