Abstract: A toy or novelty item for selectively concealing or displaying advertisements, messages, slogans, logos, or artwork printed on a ribbon. The ribbon is rolled about a reel which is concealed in a compartment such as the head or body of a doll. The ribbon extends outward from an opening in the compartment. A string which is wound about the reel in the opposite sense to that of the ribbon extends outward from the compartment through another opening. If the ribbon is pulled outward to display the printed material, the string winds on the reel. On the other hand, if the string is pulled outward, the ribbon winds on the reel, thus concealing the printed material.
Abstract: This invention relates to a simple, inexpensive calendar sheet and holder, intended as an appointment type where notations may be made in each day box, that has as its feature a continuous week by week display covering several, say 5, weeks at a time. Preferably one plus calendar years are printed on a continuous roll of paper so that as each week ends it is pulled so that successive weeks, one per line, are exposed and the used portion may be torn-off. The flat calendar holder is of simple, preferably one piece, construction, which has a unitary chamber to hold the calendar roll and an aperture to expose the calendar sheet.
