I have to confess...When I saw this thread I googled 60s and 70s toys. I am a nostalgic person. I save a bunch of images of the ones I remembered. It seems I always had the one below, but I never remember asking for or buying one.
Did the mattel shooting' rifle or hand guns have red plastic bullets? I have a faint memory of having a gun like that. We shot it in the house once, during the Tom Jones show. The bullet hit a lamp, made a lot of noise. My Mom screamed about it and was the last we saw of that toy.
And here's one more of my favorites. Hosted on Fotki
I think I might have had that Mr. Machine, but I am not sure. I have a very vague memory of a clear toy I could take apart and put back together. I thought we had two and one was a train. SSPs Smash up derby cars!!!! I just started looking for those. A bit pricey now.
Don't for get these for ruining carpet and scorched fingers. Also constant complaints from Mom about the smell Hosted on Fotki
Yesterday I turned in my last assignment on my way to getting my teaching credential. This morning I woke up, sat by the pool with a cup of coffee and thought about what I wanted to do instead of what I needed to do.
