Sea Monkeys!!

Just add water and you can become the ruler of your own brine shrimp kingdom! Play god with these delightful creatures and since you will receives BOTH sexes you can force them to make sweet sweet sea monkey love.

I have many Sea Monkey ads in my collection, but this one is my favorite because it done on glossy paper which makes the coloring on the Monkeys more “fleshy”. Which to me makes the whole ad much more disconcerting for some reason.


Also they kind of look like Whos in “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”. Maybe in the way that Snorks resemble Smurfs?
