Some Sad Writer Has To Figure Out How To Make The View-Master Toy Into A Movie

Hollywood’s next big toy-turned-movie is set to be View-Master, the stereoscope toys that were first introduced in 1939. Not familiar with the View-Master? Your grandparents were since it was all the rage before the introduction of television.

The View-Master is a stereoscope toy in which the user looks into a pair of binoculars to view photographs on slides. The user switches slides with a switch on the side. Sounds like literal seconds of fun.

Now some poor Hollywood screenwriter has to figure out how to turn this toy into a live action movie, thanks to a partnership between Mattel and MGM. Good luck.
