Different toys for different eras, but these stand out for around 1973:

Snoopy Colorforms

Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine

Creative Playthings Build-a-House "game"--I think this was the name; it had a black tray and all these squares with different components of a house and yard and sky etc. Creative Playthings had the best toys.

Did anyone else have one of those Lemon Twist things? It was basically an anklet of black plastic flex tubing with an extension length of the same that was capped off by this hard plastic lemon with pellets inside. It was basically jump rope for the only child.

He also had the bionic arm that you could peel back the skin to see the electronics. The arm could also get cranked up with a button on his back so he could pick up the engine block accessory. And who could forget his sweet jumpsuit?

That reminds me of the fun I had throwing my star wars figures in the fireplace and watching them melt. It would leave a nice odor thoughout the house so I would get busted. guess I was inspired by that raiders of the lost ark scene with Moff Tarquin.

Rock Lords...robots that transformed into "powerful living rocks"

1) Totally! So killer!

Six Million Dollar Man action figure where you could look through the back of his 'bionic' eye

2) I had Bionic Woman with the giant earhole that did nothing really except "tickticktickticktickticktick" when you turned her head. I still loved that and, got mileage out of the little computers that popped out of her skin too.

3)Merlin
Posted: Sep 23, 2009 10:43 pm
 
Was Merlin the Simon ripoff? Light-up colored buttons pressed in sequence?
Posted: Sep 23, 2009 10:56 pm
 
Merlin was just pre-Simon. Looked like a giant red 50's B-movie space-phone. Yes, you had to repeat the tune it played with the buttons...I don't even think they lit up. Like Lemon Twist, it was Simon for only children...not interactive.

legos
skateboard
schwinn stingray

Oh, Merlin was the one that looked like a gigantic silver cell phone, right? Friends had those but I never did. I better google that shit to see if it's what I'm thinking of....

Ooooh, it was red. Vaguely remember it...

Posted: Sep 24, 2009 10:22 am

2. evel kneivel wind up motorcycle thing (loved poking the bendability wires through his flesh)

3. star wars/ g.i. joe/ transformers

Merlin was great. Simon, didn't have one of my own because, um, only child (brother lived with dad and stepmom)! I did have a Mattel Electronic Basketball though...

I'd also be lying if I didn't say I had tons of Barbies, Francies, Kens (the fave was Mod Ken with facial hair you could stick on him) and a Skipper. Plus numerous accessories--Friendship (plane), Townhouse, Malibu Van, 2 muscle cars, two big cases, 1 little case and all my aunt's 60's Barbie/Francie clothes plus my 70's ensembles.

Posted: Sep 26, 2009 2:35 pm
 
I always wanted one of those bird "toys" that sat on some thing filled with red water and (I believe) would bob up and down based on the barometric pressure. It was always advertised in comic books along with Sea Monkeys (aka Childhood's Second Biggest Letdown, #1 being the discovery of no Santa).
