" Here are three cut-out soldiers for your collection. First color them with your crayons or water colors. Then cut out the men around their outlines. Bend the base backward on the dotted lines to make them stand." These cut-outs by A. W. Nugent appeared in the Tribune on September 17, 1933.
A series of Military Cut-Outs appeared in the Atlanta Constitution in 1918. I have found 8 of the cut-outs from the series of at least 10. The American Military includes a General, a Colonel, a Major, a Captain, a Sergeant, a Bugler, Infantry soldiers, airplanes, red cross nurses, aviator, sniper, a machine gun, artillery and a very cool tank and armored car.

This ad for HAFFNER'S STAR BAKERY appeared in an Indiana newspaper in November of 1919. "It's great fun to color and cut out these Fold-Away Toys - fun making them - fun playing with them when they are made. The complete set consists of one doll and eight soldier suits and hats of our hero boys and the soldier suits of our brave allies. You can change BILLY from one uniform to another as you like. All you have to do to get a complete set of these dandy Colortoys is to ask mother to order a loaf of Haffner's Big-Tayto Loaf Bread every day from her grocer. She'll be pleased with this splendid bread, that is 15 cents a loaf at all dealers, and you'll have the toys to play with."
