Roller Skates

Roller Skates


Roller Skates and Disco went hand in hand in the 70’s, it wasn’t just for car hops in the 50’s.  Recently revisited in the movie “Boogie Nights” with Heather Graham as the Roller Girl also starring Burt Reynolds playing Jack Horner, a sleazy porn star director and Mark Wahlberg portraying Eddie Adams aka Dirk Diggler, a porn star, who had a triumphant rise and tragic fall as the advent of video tape changed the movie world (especially the porn industry) completely.

The Ouija Board

The Ouija Board


The Ouija Board is a funny topic because I’m not sure if I should put it in with the Paranormal, Horror or Toy section.  My choice is the Toy Section.  Why?  Please people this is no more of a paranormal item than “Shoots and Ladders” also owned by Hasbro.    So many people including my own family tell me “Don’t get a Ouija Board, it will bring bad spirits!”  They are not alone, many people believe that.  Why?  Because they don’t understand the science behind the game.

Sony Walkman TPS-L2


Sony Walkman TPS-L2
I realize it’s not really a toy, but it was the electronic device that revolutionized how we listened to music during this era of my toy collecting.  The year was 1979, I was the lucky one who introduced the Sony Walkman to my friends at school and they (like me) could not believe the amazing sound!  It was the first time that you felt like you had a concert in your head with amazing surround clarity.  There is still those that argue that nothing (even today) matches the sound of the Sony Walkman TPS-L2.

Zero M Sonic Blaster

Zero M Sonic Blaster


The Zero M Sonic Blaster was recalled because it made kids deaf for a period of time.

This is the toy I am always on the look out for.  I figure the Sonic Blaster will be an effective way to get my dog’s attention when she barks at squirrels and refuses to come when I call her and also to wake up my daughter when she sleeps in and misses school.

Besides being extremely cool, The Sonic Blaster had a commercial starring Kurt Russell.

Mego Super Heroes

Mego Super Heroes


When I was a kid, 10 years old to be exact, I was in a pretty nasty accident that included me on a bike and a Ford Bronco.  The Ford Bronco won.  While laid up in a hospital bed for an extended period of time, I was given a set of Mego Super Heroes from my parents and I was thrilled!  The selection was astounding as Mego had you hooked to buy more and more.

Evel Knievel was a hero to me as a kid.  Who wouldn’t admire a guy who drinks heavily, jumps a Harley Davidson Bike and beats people up with a baseball bat?
