Many many moons ago, these were all the rage. Advertisements appeared in almost every magazine, newspaper and comic book. Just add water and poof!

It wasn't until I got into this hobby that I found out that they were actually shrimp.

sea monkeys are just a really expensive brine shrimp....theyre the same thing but marketed as a different thing at about 20 times the cost....

mine only would live for about a week anyways....
and triops? well they get kindfa boring after they all eat eachother and die....

I love Sea Monkeys (or more, the mystique/image of Sea Monkeys) and collect vintage Sea Monkey stuff...all stems from when I was five and embraced (if only for a short while until my aquarist father killed it) the dream of keeping little, naked, web-footed aquatic humanoids in a fish bowl.

The sea-monkeys made their first appearance in the 70's, didn't they?

Cute little buggers... and my fish seem to love em to!

1959, although they did not really hit the market significantly until 1960.

sea monkeys are great. when I was in fifth grade I had some and got them on and off here and there. they are a neat toy and I like toirtis liked the image of sea monkeys, cute little underwater humanoids - neat creatures but they are literally brine shrimp.
