"Talking Card Says 'Happy Birthday'
"A talking birthday card is an ingenious novelty now on the market. Extending from the mouth of a picture of Charlie McCarthy, famous ventriloquist's dummy, printed on the card, is a notched sound tape. When a person pulls his thumb nail along the tape, as shown above, the words 'Happy Birthday' are clearly reproduced."
(((Dan Howland remarks: Photograph shows card, about 3" x 5" with strip of tape about 18" long extending from Charlie's mouth. Tape is maybe 1/8" wide.)))
