Taxidermied Frog Orchestra

I came across this ad in Boys' Life - Oct 1935. Then I realized that Paul had already posted a version of the ad two years ago. But I decided to post this version anyway, since it shows the Taxidermied Frog Orchestra. I wonder how many kids actually went ahead and made one of these.

I once bought a frog coin purse while on vacation in Mexico. Large bullfrog type dead, cleaned out, tanned, with a zipper down the belly. Gave it as a mystery gift at a social club's annual Christmas gift exchange.

Gross! Children playing with dead things is frowned upon now-a-days.

Speaking of uses for dead animals, on a trip to Vermont, we stopped at the studio of Marion Waldo McChesney, who incorporates roadkill animals into her ceramic art. We have a small plate that used a couple of small flattened frogs.
