A rare find for collectors. WINKY DINK and YOU was an interactive television program in the early-to-mid 1950s shown on Saturday mornings on CBS network.

The premise of the show was a cartoon character WINKY DINK along with his dog would go on adventures which always required assistance from the viewing children. The kids would send away for this kit which includes a green plastic screen (Magic Window) which is put onto the television screen via static electricity. When Winky would need help because there was no way across the stream, the children would draw a bridge on the screen and Winky could continue on his journey. If he needed a ladder the child could draw a ladder on the screen and the adventure would continue. Quite innovative for the time.
