Full color 9 3/4" x 13 1/2" ad for the "3 new plastic bandages...all with Super-Stick". These three amazing bandages from Band-Aid were how they were making it possible for us to bandage up every little nick in every possible spot. There are three pictures that show a young girl swimming in a pool and in each picture she has a different bandage on. In the first she has a Band-Aid Plastic Patch on the inside of her hand and it shows her swimming a stroke. The second picture shows a Band-Aid Plastic Strip on her forearm as she again is swimming. The third picture shows her sitting in the water with a Band-Aid Plastic Spot applied to her cheek. The text says there is "A shape for every need. Flesh-colored. Won't loosen in water." and, below this, it shows the "Plastic Bandage Kit" that was available.

Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad for some of their First Aid Products. There is a picture drawn by John Falter that shows a young girl sitting on the front door steps with an apple, her doll and a knife. She is working on some artsy project that has required her to accumulate a lot of little pieces to be lying on the ground in front of her and the headline asks "How many ways can she hurt herself today?". At the bottom of the ad are shown five products of theirs that are recommended for a First Aid Kit and they would, at the time, have cost "about $2". Shown are Cotton Balls (39 cents), First Aid Cream (59 cents), Steri-Pad Gauze Pads (40 cents), Band-Aid Clear Tape (39 cents) and Improved Bandage (33 cents). This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Black and white 10" x 13 1/2" ad for the Johnson & Johnson Band-Aid Sheer Strips which, the picture calls, "The Breathing Bandage". In the picture a little girl is having her mother place one of these bandages on her knee. We can tell that the little girl is not being pained while it is being done because there is the hint of a smile on her face. The ad gives us assureances because "Now. Air Vents all over help you heal even faster. Healing air comes in. Moisture goes out. You heal faster. Your skin stays fresh: the breathing bandage helps prevent that whitened wrinkled look. And SUPER STICK makes sure the bandage won't loosen - even in water. Somehow you feel safer just knowing you have the breathing bandage in your medicine chest. (Save money, buy your Band-Aid Sheer Strips in the large size package. Only 60 cents)".

The ad headline says "Now Air Goes Through" and the text talks about the benefit of using a product with Air-Vents. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.
