As seen in this 1952 Aldens Christmas Book:

Item #4 is the Tom Corbett Wristwatch. Item #5 appears to be a Tom Corbett Space Cadet wallet.

I have not been able to find a photo of this actual piece however.

 

And, in this Christmas 1952 F.A.O. Schwarz catalog:

Here's a purported 1954-1955 Dayton's Toys catalog which appears to show the same playsuit:

Two bits of interesting information contained the description:

1. The suit was made by Sackman

2. This version came with a gun and holster.

Anyone care to guess the make of that (teeny, tiny) gun?

It's got to be a Pyro clicker.
