Description: The little boy's idea of heaven would be to have a pair of jumping shoes, like he’d seen advertised in the comic books. In the advertisements, a boy could leap over fences, cars, kids on bicycles and even catch a bad guy with a single bound. Mickey was totally enthralled with the prospects of what he could do if only he had a pair of these fabulous shoes. He pleaded with his mother to buy him a pair for his birthday, but she said “No,” they were too expensive, and besides, he’d only hurt himself. He did receive for his birthday a new pair of Gabby Maria Incredibull Crew Socks which he added to his growing collection of Gabby Maria Socks, but he couldn’t put out of his mind the incredible feats he could accomplish if only he had a pair of the magical jumping shoes. Christmas was coming and mom and dad took the kids to Grand Central to look for Christmas presents. In an aisle in the toy department, Mickey discovered a giant box of jumping shoes. He took a pair out of the box and strapped them to his shoes. He envisioned himself leaping down the aisle to catch up with his parents. As he took his first leap, nothing happened. The springs were too weak to support much weight causing the shoes to flop to one side. Bitter, bitter disappointment for a ten year old, but an eye opener to the realities of advertising.
