Description
The date that will live in infamy. With the help of Wayne Neyens, Harry Mabs invented the Flipper. What this did was change a game of CHANCE into a game of SKILL and forever changed the direction of pinball. This is the one to own if you have any interest in the history of pinball. First of the Fairy Tale Series games six backwards flippers controlled by two "flipper bumpers" buttons on the side of the cabinet where they are still located today. Watch Humpty Dumpty fall from the wall on the light animated backglass. Pinball machine with flippers. Backglass looks to be a reproduction. Cabinet is original. Playfield (9). Back glass (10). Cabinet (8). Degree of play difficulty: medium to hard getting numbered bumpers out sequentially.
