Wooden school blackboard duster / great for throwing at unruly pupils!
Pong Made in Germany 1977 - ok didn't know this was a German thing. I remember my parents and me playing this in the pre-computer games era.
Wooden Antelope - my Mum had one of these which we knocked an antler off!
Public information adverts - Joe & Petunia ( Coastguard info ad) Joe sees a man drowning but Petunia only has eyes for the Lifeguard. Loved these films, classy and they did what they were supposed
