From Peter Monticup's collection of magical oddities.This is the VERY HARD TO FIND original E.T. Finger Light as purchased from KMart in 1982.ONLY ONE AVAILABLE.
Only on the market for a few months in 1982!
This rare and unusual novelty toy did not last long when originally produced.Knickerbocker quickly replaced it with a full hand version and took this one off the market.Today it is extremely hard to find and sought after by collectors, especially in its original packaging.
Although it originally came with a battery, it is too old to function now. The battery inside this one is dead and cannot be replaced.
Please note that the photo was taken with a strong light coming in from the right, so it may appear that the finger is lit up.It is not.
CONDITION: very good.Cardboard has some bends, especially above the clamshell plastic, and at the display hook hole.Plastic has been carefully cut at the bottom of the clamshell to use the light without removing the finger from the package.Plastic has yellowed with age.
