C. Carey Cloud » Cracker Jack » Standing Musical Whistles

In 1957 C. Carey Cloud created a 10 Standing Musical Whistles for Cracker Jack. The ten different whistles are an accordion, a banjo, a bugle, a cornet, a french horn, a saxophone, scales, a trombone, a ukulele, and a violin. The Standing Musical Whistles measure ¼" wide, and 1" high, and come in red, green, and blue. Rumor has it that a few yellow whistles are floating about.

There was a newspaper article written about these whistles, and it's inventor. Because C. Carey Cloud was born near Whistleville Indiana, the article was cleverly titled Whistleville Man Invents a Whistle, a couple of excerpts are below.

Whistle newspaper clipping - World's 1st all plastic whistle
The man from Whistleville who dreams up those toys in crackerjack boxes now has invented the world's first all plastic whistle.
Whistle newspaper clipping - Pleasing tone whistle
"They don't have an ear-piercing screech and in fact the tone is rather pleasing," he says, consoling mamas and papas disturbed by other toy whistles.

He also created Razz Zooka the Embossed Paper Whistles and the Four Tone Plastic Flute Whistles
