Chucklers Weekly (1)

Chucklers Weekly was a children's magazine published in Sydney that seems to have flourished in the mid- to late-50s. It was the first magazine I ever subscribed to, when I was 9 or 10 years old. I was a member of the Charlie Chuckles Club, named for the magazine's kookaburra mascot.

My childhood collection being lost forever, I bought these two copies online, from 9 January and 28 August1959.

Lived in a small country town in NSW in the early fifties ( 6yrs old in 1953 ).
Chucklers Weekly was one of the few bright spots.
Was very popular until the price went up and parents couldn't afford to continue. Pity !
