Do you remember this stuff? I had Super-Man. It was foaming soap. You'd push on the top of his head and he projectile vomited shaving cream-like foam out of his mouth. Then you slathered it all over your body in the tub. I'm sure it was meant to last a while, but I used mine up in three baths.
I think they still make these, maybe. But I remember them in the clear wrapper on the bottom. Yum! Ten cents at High's Dairy Store.
Mr. Zog's Sex Wax
Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine
I totally had this. I remember begging and begging for it. I think I used it twice. It involved a lot of turning the crank. In no way was I spoiled.
I loved these. Unfortunately, I ran out of paper too quickly and the plates made their way all over the house. And I didn't have a pencil sharpener.
Rubik's Cube Necklace
I think these may be back in style and I just don't know it because there were a lot of images for this when I googled it. My best friend and I exchanged Rubik's cube necklaces for Christmas one year. I remember that I felt like I got the shaft because the one I gave her had a metal chain and the one she gave me just had a black cord. Again, I was not spoiled.
Waterful Ring Toss
I remember playing with this a lot, but it probably just felt like I did and I really didn't. I do remember the water getting low and I still tried to pump the rings onto the spikes, but there wasn't enough room between the spike and the top of the water for the ring to go and so I would have to tilt the game and hope gravity didn't work against me. It was actually pretty fun before Atari 2600 came around.
Ahh, the good old days.
Here's me in my Holly Hobbie t-shirt, ticked off at my mom because she made me look at the camera while playing Space Invaders or Demon Attack. The nerve of her. I just know I got destroyed.
Table Top Video Games
This meant I wouldn't have to lug the entire Atari 2600 console all the way to my grandmother's house and hook it up to the back of her TV with a butter knife. I could just take my Q-bert game. My sister had Frogger. Actually, I think she still has it. And I think it still works too.
I've looked for one of these sets for my kids (and me), and thought we had one, but it turned out to be some cheap, dumb thing that didn't make anything as glorious as the spirals on this page.
Party All The Time by Eddie Murphy
I really liked this song. He's a great singer. And hilarious. Then you get the bonus of the Super Freak himself, Rick James joining in. Now I can't get this song out of my head. Sang it too my family throughout dinner.
(The Original) Star Wars Action Figures
My husband made me put this one in. The only time I played with them was at my babysitter's house when her grandson had them around. I only really liked RD-D2. I pretended like he was my Barbie's robot maid, like Rosie from the Jetsons.
(The Original) Strawberry Shortcake and Friends
Sadly, I was too old for Strawberry Shortcake by the time she came out. But my sister wasn't! So, like Dolly Pops, I secretly played with these as a teenager too.
