Is this the tackiest World's Fair souvenir ever?

From the 1962 Seattle World's Fair we give you "Spunky, The Space Age Turtle."

The sign proudly proclaims "Take Along or Mailed Anywhere in U.S.A." and "A Living Souvenir of Century 21". I would hate to estimate the mortaility rate of the poor turtles sold to people who then carried them around the fair for the rest of the day, or who mailed them back home. Man, this has to be one of the tackiest souvenirs I've come across so far.
