MMM & Barbie Promotion with Funny Face Drink Mix from Jack & Jill Magazine, August, 1967
The two-page center spread features a promotion in conjunction with Funny Face Drink Mix. The idea was to color-in a small Funny Face Strip and fill-out an entry form (you also had to either send in 5 Funny Face packages or 5 sheets of paper with "Funny Face" hand printed on them). There were 5000 winners (2500 boys and 2500 girls). The boys won a Space Station Space Crawler Deluxe Action Set, while the girls won a Twist 'n Turn Barbie and a "World of Barbie" House. The store display was unusual in that an MMM Flight Card and Twist 'n Turn Barbie (in the box) were glued to the display header. At the bottom were boxes of Funny Face Drink Mix and a tear-off book of Entry forms (see left, bottom two pics...click to enlarge!).
