In my dreams I found this in a Christmas stocking! I've always kept an eye out for the origin of this strange little spaceship called Space Adventure. Its from the Hover range of SpaceX-inspired miniature toys from the Seventies.
I saw this old OTHER WORLDS Science Stories cover the other day and it sort of made me think of the Hover toy. It's from 1950.
In a way the Hover Space Adventure reminds me a little of cartoon space cruisers like the one the Jetsons had in 1962.
and the one Astronut had too
and of course those cheeky urchins the Kozmic Kiddles

Any more mini space cruisers readers?
