Dexterity Puzzles from Outer Space

I love vintage hand-held dexterity puzzles. These three space themed versions are some of my favorites. Made in 1957 by Comon Tatar of New York, they feature some fantastic mid-century space-age illustrations.

"Stop the Martians!" has a classic 1950s flying saucer 
menacing a cityscape.

"Trip to the Moon" sports a sleek rocket 
and a smiling man-in-the-moon.

And "Space Gallery" offers you the chance to unapologetically 
blast away at alien invaders.
Dig the Flash Gordon style space helmet and ray gun!
