#14 - Zooscope

Scopes: Two versions of the "Zooscope" (yellow and white).

Manufactured By: Green Monk / Combex / Chad Valley.

Reason for this Rating: The Zooscope has some good graphics but this is more a selection for the company.  Green Monk, Combex and Chad Valley (assumed to all be the same) make the coolest toy scopes in England.  They also make the most toy scopes in England, in fact you could have a whole collection of just their scopes.  They are the Steven Manufacturing Company of England.

Year: Yellow scope is 1969 & white scope is unknown

Dimensions: Both scopes are 9 inches tall (includes object cell which is 1 3/4 inches tall) and 2 inches in diameter (object cell is 2 5/8 inches in diameter).

Interior Image: Both are 4 and a Half Point Mandala (40 degree 2-mirror system).

Objects: Both use colored plastic pieces. Yellow one also has a small plastic blue elephant and black lion.

Other: Both scopes are made of tin with plastic object cells.
