Advanced Ancient Technology: the "Relax-O-Matic Backscratcher"

I found this item at a thrift store for $4. I have no idea how old it actually is, but the box resembles something from the 1940's, and even feels as though it's from that era but really who knows. This could very well be a recently made thing from 20 years ago. There's also no company name on it, at least not one I could find. It just says "Made in Hong Kong".

It's just a little plastic hand at the end of a metal pole attached to a battery powered vibrating handle. I didn't have any C batteries available to see if it still worked, but that doesn't really matter; it makes a beautiful display piece on my shelf. I'm also convinced that the model on the box art is none other but Connie Dobbs, the primary wife of J.R. "Bob" Dobbs.
