~ Ever Ready Dustette, 1952via History World“The Ever Ready Dustette is a present that will give any girl or boy a lot of fun. It really picks up cigarette ash, crumbs and dust like the real thing.”

You know, the cigarette ash thing makes us giggle, but note something else interesting, especially for the 1950s… This ad implies that girls AND boys can pretend to do housework, and it’s socially acceptable. Like, whoa.
