Ideal Atomic Cannon

2019 Atomic Advent Calendar Gift Ideas Day 3

Ideal’s exact replica of the U.S. Army’s Atomic Cannon will give you the firepower you need to blast your friends. Over 4 feet long, it comes with six soft-tipped shells for loading into the cannon complete with adjustable firing ranges. This 1958 beauty is only $7.98 ($71.06 in today’s dollars, and much cheaper than the $7.6MM to purchase a real one!).

Ideal Toy Company produced toys and dolls from 1909 to 1997, including a wide variety of military toys.

The 1958 advertisement for the Ideal M65 Atomic Cannon is sure to make you cringe.
