I've started selling some of my toys & collectibles.
Sea Diver - The Underwater Explorer by Parker Brothers is such a great science based game. A Cartesian Diver toy, one puts the diving bell into the bottle along with the gravel and nautical items and fills with water. Squeezing the bottle causes the diving bell to dive and the hooks on the bottom to open. One tries to land the hooks over a plasic item and releases the pressure on the bottle. As the bell starts rising the hooks on the bottom close and hopefully bring up your item from the deep. Way cool. My game is missing the wire hook used to retrieve items from the bottle, has a rusted-through bottle cap, and has a broken hook on the diving bell. Also, this set came with extra cannons and sword but no sextant or lantern (sigh). I got this toy from a toybox visitor who let it go for a very reasonable price--I've been wanting a copy for years and years--thanks Bob. Item number 240 dated 1973. The instructions are online compliments of Hasbro (which is Ideal, Milton Bradley, and Parker Brothers).
Similar toys were released by Sears under the name Aqua Diver and by Diversion Dynamics under the name Dyna-Diver (pic).
Other nautical toys in my collection include: Twin Navy Code Blinker Lites by Hasbro, Nautics Lab Kit by Logix Enterprises, Sharkie's Diner by Marx, Sub Search and Sunken Treasure games by Parker Brothers, and the Explorer 7 Submarine by Unidac.
