Baby Boomer Fun: 1960's Lessons About Gender Roles


Thursday is Baby Boomer Fun day here, no real estate, so here goes...

This is a pair of 60 second commercials, which give us quite a window into what the advertiser's thought about the genders in those days.

For the Men:
Personally, I couldn't wait to get my first pair of PF Flyers. I did truly believe they were magic shoes: "Billy Saves the Astronaut", it doesn't get much more manly than that in 1962.

Enjoy! 60 seconds

For the Women:
Introducing the Ken doll, "You Can Tell It's Mattel, It's Swell"....What more could a woman want than to land a guy like Ken?

Barbie and Ken were together for 43 years, before breaking up in February of 2004.

60 Seconds

PLEASE NOTE: Videos do disappear from the web from time to time. If this video should become unavailable, then find more 1962 nostalgia at this location.
