Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

Don't know why they bothered making any other toys after this one was invented.

In case you didnt know, O-din invented the Hula-Hoop, with beads inside.

He told me it was silicone but beads are ok too.

I only had the stick, I was stuck just playing with that while imagining what the hoop must be like.

One of my favorite toys, and one that got me in Lots of Trouble was Super Stuff!

(Note the GROOVY MUSIC!)

Finally...Reintroduced!!

Add a jar to your Holiday list...the kids will be covered with it!

Skateboards, Transformers, GI Joe, Masters of the Universe, and Ninja Turtles. And the occasional foil and cardboard to make vehicles that were too expensive.

As mentioned earlier Sizzlers. 3 fat tracks and a lot of unopened cars. And Juliette has to see what's going on.

killer collection of powells

#1367 5 months ago

I don't remember the name of it, but I played with a car in the 1970s that was purple and looked like a sedan and you wound it up, then hit a button and the body around the windshield lifted up, and the car stretched out from under the body until it was a hotrod with an exposed engine, then the car took off until the wheel springs unwound. No idea what happened to it or what it was called, but it was a cool toy, and no batteries required.

Edit: Found the toy line, but not the actual model (only Pinto and VW Bug are on youtube, but these ARE the toy, just different car models):

Edit 2: Found the picture of the one I had - it's the willy car in the middle:

I sometimes still play with my ding-a-ling.

I never have heard of the spin welder. A fusion welder for kids. That's cool.

They are on Ebay. For a price that would make you want to keep it under lock and key.

#1374 5 months ago

Oh damn I had one of those. They were really fun. You could maneuver and use the hook to pick up stuff.

#1375 5 months ago

I had one of those spin welders
Wow.... forgot all about it until you posted

For some reason the picture you posted reminded of that smell
Funny how the brain works

Yeah, that smell stuck with me too!

#1377 5 months ago

I am to old for this, but picked up a whole bunch of these 15 years ago for me son....It kept him busy!

Clean Sweep was a Christmas Joy, 1967....I was 7.

I had something like this but it had two airplanes. I think they had streamers attached the their tails and you were supposed to catch the other one. Can't remember what it was. It's driving me crazy.

Old Games only get bigger!

Here is a Giant Battleship game from IAPPA today!

OMG!! YES! SO strange how the brain works - as soon as I saw that picture I could remember the smell. Wow - talk about a blast from the past!

This "Is" my favorite, and I still have it thanks to my mom.

Oh, and probably a peddle car too..I just don't have a picture at my fingertips right now.

#1386 5 months ago

I'm betting that earth mover isn't picking up much dirt & rocks on your carpet

Quoted from ShinyBall:

That is saying a lot. Most moms would have tossed something like that before you left junior high school.

I came across this while cleaning out the attic of my childhood home. Didn't Lucile Ball do the Pivot Pool commercials?

Pivot Golf, She was on the cover of the box....Still an excellent Game like your Pivot Pool!!

#1392 69 days ago

Apparently she advertised for several Milton Bradley games. I found this on eBay. My box does not have her image, but I vaguely remembered the commercials. Now that I see the golf game, I think I may have had or played that, too.

I just remembered that I used to have a doctor's kit when I was 4-5 years old. Me and the little girl next door used to play doctor. I seem to remember having a good time giving shots with the fake sringe

Wow, my sister had that kit back in the 70’s.
