A warm welcome to the new product ideas from April 1958 page. On this page are a list of ideas for new products that were put forward by people back in 1958.
Perhaps there is something here that sparks your imagination? Maybe you too can come up with a fantastic, new idea for a product. If so, and if it's something that you would like to share with the rest of the world then please do so by visiting my creative ideas page where you will find a form for submitting your creative ideas.
Please note that as these ideas were from 1958 some of them may now be in common use today or simply irrelevant due to them being related to an old fashioned product or concept.
A station-wagon grille for use when the upper half of the tailgate is open. It would admit breezes yet keep youngsters or pets safely enclosed. - Mrs. L.L.Shook, Yorktown, Va.
Food freezers with fur-coat storage space. Add a compartment at the side of an upright freezer, or a narrow drawer below a cabinet freezer. - Alden Smith, Newark, N.J.
A pot scouring attachment for an electric mixer. A disk with clamps to grip a steel-wool pad would clean even a burned pot in a hurry. - Mrs. Lawrence Frey, Brookville, Ind.
A collapsible tot-toter for youngsters too big for a stroller, but small enough to weary easily on shopping tours or trips to the zoo. - D.L.Westphal, Rochelle Park, N.J.
A transmission minder on the dash of an automatic-shift car to warn when transmission oil level is low. That fancy mechanism can cost plenty to fix. - J.M.Blasko, Savanna, Ill.
