Many parents remember the old ViewMaster viewers as kids. They're still around and great presents for little girls who love Cinderella and all the other Disney princesses.
There is a long history behind ViewMasters, which gave a 3D perspective on classic tales long before that became a fad in the movies. There's also a lot of artwork in the old reels that gives a nice flavor to the tried and true stories of princesses and their gallant princes. ViewMaster Cinderella reels have been around for many decades and have changed over time.
In honor of them, we have gathered a bunch of ViewMaster slides from various incarnations of the Cinderella story for your amusement!
