View-Master Novelty Viewers - When is a ViewMaster not a ViewMaster!




Several novelty variations of View-Master viewers have appeared over time. These include character face viewers and a host of miniature viewers in the form of keychains and dolls house accessories.. Even Barbie has had her own miniaturised View-Master viewer as part of the 'Cool Collecting Barbie" range issued by Mattel. Other such items such as shown on this page all contribute to the enjoyment of collecting items from the View-Master genre.

The Cool Collecting Barbie Miniature Viewer

This non-stereo miniature viewer, based on a Model G, measures 4cm across and was manufactured under the Fisher-Price brand name for inclusion in the Cool Collecting Barbie doll range.

The viewer was supplied with three reels, each with seven non-stereo pictures.

This sew-on patch is unique, being designed and produced by the author of this web site. It measures 7.5cm x 5.5cm and is cotton embroidered with a felt backing.

A miniature Model L Viewer manufactured by Basic Fun Inc. in 1997.
It even has a reel which contains 7 pictures of sea-life.

Another keychain viewer manufactured by Basic Fun. This time it is a Virtual Viewer from 2000
This one contains a reel of Barbie in 7 different locations around the World.


Noddy View-Master Clone by Enid Blyton Ltd.

Whilst this uses the View-Master format it isn't compatible as the reels are very slightly smaller. The viewer is manufactured in China in fairly brittle feeling plastic. The separation of the eye pieces is very narrow, making it suitable for viewing by children, but uncomfortable for adults.

The influence of the View-Master product range has inspired manufacturers of other goods to include elements in their designs.

 Here we have a watch that sports a View-Master Personal Reel as a clock face.
