Toys From My Childhood
|My rubber duck from 1977.|
|Creative Playthings Pound-A-Ball. Date unknown. I actually still remember pounding the balls through this resistant rubber that was a little wider than the wooden holes. Now, the rubber is old and cracked.|
Ernie Hand Puppet
Copyright 1973 Children's Television Workshop.
Fisher Price Corn Popper #788
I have the one
that was in production from 1963-1979. From 1980-1989, it had a plastic
base and plastic balls instead of wood. Measures 6-1/4" high and 8-3/8"
wide with a 18-1/2" long handle topped with a red plastic safety knob.
Sesame Street Big Bird Beater
Copyright 1979 Children's Television Workshop.
I loved this thing when I was little.
|Olivia the Stretch Octopus by Kenner first produced in 1978. Mine is a bit dirty from play and no longer stretches. I received for my fourth birthday in July 1979. The last two pictures show my cousin and me playing with it. I'm on the right.|
Sun Products Corporation, a Talley Industries Company, "Dragon
I used to bounce all over the place on this---it was one of my
favorite toys. I can still remember the distinct sound it made as I
plopped along on the sidewalk. I don't know what it looks like after
decades of setting around and I didn't dare try to get it out of the box
because I was afraid of tearing the cardboard. It is inside though.
PacMan2 Portable Game
I got this game from my uncle Terry. I have great memories of
staying up late, hiding under the covers, playing this game all night
long. It still works after all these years (you can see that the display
is lit up).
The Wedge toy car by Gay Toys, Inc.
The third photo is from 1986 and shows how I used to use this
car with my pet toads.
|Worlds of Wonder Little Boppers Donald Duck, 1987. This guy moves to the sound of music and flaps his wings and stomps his feet. He still works. Donald was one of my very favorite cartoon characters.|
|The "Snoz" gag nose 3" tall as shown in first picture Contents in box 1951|
|Plast-i-clay Modeling Clay 5 3/16" long Unopened Date unknown|
