  • This Old Toy - (report)
    This give a pretty good listing of toys made and sold by Fischer-Price from the early 70's on. One of the pics to the right shows an old movie viewer with a cartridge for Sesame Street "Numbers" and another for Walt Disney's "Lonesome Ghosts". This was a really fun toy and also educational because you could view animation frame-by-frame to see how the movements of the characters changed.

Hello! Im not sure if anyone remembers this but i think it was a Burger King Game. or Build a Burger. In the center was a burger you put the menus and you had to make the whole order within a timer. It came with tray, fries, shakes, or drinks, and you actually built a burger out of fake meat patties, lettuce, etc... Anyone remember this? My sister and I played for HOURS!

She is indeed a Snugglebumm. The range was produced by Playskool in the 1980s. The Snugglebumm pictured is called 'Warmly', she is one of 9 baby Snugglebumms. The others being - Shyly, Cutely, Fondly, Dearly, Glady, Happily, Lightly & Spritely. (Dearly & Lightly exclusive to Germany) The babies 'giggled' when shook. There were three adults available - Papa Gently, Mama Brightly & Princess Snugglina. Mama & Papa lighted up when 'hugged' and Princess had very long hair. There was also a range of Snugglebumm pets such as caterpilla and butterfly type creatures and a dinosaur 'Tuggles' who pulled the Snugglebumm carriage. Hope that helps some people out! Jx

I used to have a plastic toy snap-construction set in the early 1980's with several parts, but the most distinctive part of the set was a piece rather like a dodecahedron or icosahedron. There were also white notched beams, small black connectors, wheels, and blue panels. The notched beams and black connectors would snap into the dodecahedron-shaped pieces. Does anyone know what this is?

There was an electronic toy gun, probably eight-inches to a foot long, with a sliding lever that made five different sounds, and a blinking light where the eyesight would be. The gun was black, with a red muzzle. Anyone remember? I thought that it was called the sonic blaster, but I can't find it anywhere.

This one I only remember a little bit - I never owned one or used it - only remember seeing the commercials, and also seeing it at ToysRUs. It might even belong in the 1970's. It was a yellow, blimp-like electronic toy, possibly called the bomb. It wasn't thrown around, I think that the sounds that the game made determined the pace of the game. It may have been made by Milton Bradley.

I think you're talking about "Hot Looks" dolls by Mattel. I loved these dolls! they had Chelsea from London, Stacy from America, Mimi from France, and 2 others...can't remember their names though. I believe they came out in the mid 80s but didn't last long on the market. they were my favorite dolls growing up though.

There was this one toy, it was the rage when I was in grade school, around 1995 or so... They were metal tops that looked like sawblades... You wound them up on a little device and set them against your friends tops in a plastic arena... any ideas? It has been driving me crazy for three years... They have ones like them now called bayblades, but they are nowhere near as cool...

hey there everyone,i was curious about a peticular action figure that came out in the early 80's.. like before 85 sometime,and didnt seem to last for very long.. i'll describe it,but bear with me,its been a loong while.. lets see.. it was around, give er take, 'he-man' sized..and the main thing i can remember about it is that it had some kind of hollowed out torso that had a sort of 'skeleton' frame in the torso,covered with a type of rubber/latex 'skin' over the plastic 'skeleton' innards.. and when a button of some knd was pressed,the 'skin' would be sucked into the hollowed torso area,(over the 'skeleton' underneath) and the figure would look all emaciated,... i hope someone out there can help me find out who this dude was! and where i could possibly find one/some!...thanks again everyone..

Not a toy but a game...I've been trying to find it all day. Here goes: it was a card game where you could put a drink, dinner and side/dessert together...some of the food was 'bad' ie a plate of mud or a cup of sludge. I can't remember the name. Also, did anyone else have the cool food transformers from McD's and the food commandos?

Trying to find a very bizarre toy we used to have but have no idea of the name. It was a very short doll with an extremely large head -well out of proportion with the body. If you pulled the head, it pulled up on a string. As the head returned to the body, it made 3 comments: "I'm falling apart", "Whoops here comes by body" and "I lost my head over you". Does anyone remember this doll or know it's name?

I remeber a toy i played with with my cousin, it was like a lite-brite but it sat horizontal and you had little plastic tubes and different shaped things that were clearish-green, and you stacked them on the lite-brite thing and they glowed or lit up and you could make towers and stuff, anyone know what im talking about?
Carl - May 15, 2007 - Report this comment
I recall a "construction" set I had as a boy in the mid- to late 80s, perhaps the very early 90s. Essentially you built up a building out of plastic I-beams, support columns, and foundation "feet," then hung little panels here and there to simulate the walls and windows. Finally, you'd rig the bottom parts up with a pneumatic "thing" (that's where my memory is foggy), and hit a plunger. Thus, you'd blow up the building--that was the whole point of the set. I can recall several different sets, now that I think of it, all around the same theme. One of them might have been a radio tower or something--I can remember red and white transmission towers that you'd place on top. I can't remember the name of this toy, and it's driving me up the wall!

Hello y'all. I have a question. There are two toys that I am trying to remember the name of them in hopes that I would find them on eBay. Ok, first toy, they are a bunch of (hard rubber/vinyl)little babies with different body language (standing, sitting, laying down, waving, etc) and they all smell like baby powder. They are about 2 to 3 inches tall. They have this loop on the top of their head that you can wear like a necklace. Oh also, they all come with their own card, I am not sure if they have their own name or number. I am guess there were like 50 different of them or so. I was thinking of the name Caboodles, but that the makeup box or whatever. For the life of me I cannot remember the name. Toy number 2, this may be a toughie. They are about 3 inches tall, made out of hard plastic, but they have hair. Each of these individuals have their own wild hair color. Blue, Neon Yellow, Pink, Green, Purple, and Orange. On their shirt, they have their own logo like ice cream, hamburger, cake, etc. They are more like a funky little toy. A curly green hair with yellow shirt and blue pants. Real tiny and small. I don't remember if they have a name for it. All I can say is that those two toys were definitely in the 80s! I just cannot remember the names. So I am hoping that some of you out there will know the name of one or both toys that I had mentioned. Thank you for your time and hopefully will hear from one of you that knows! :)

Ok, I found out the name of toy number one....the babies that I was asking about is called "Oodles"!!! I knew that there was oodles in the word, but for the life of me I don't know why I had thought of caboodles LOL. Ok, I am stuck on toy number 2.

I think I found out the name of the second toy that I was referring to early. Little Wee Wild Things. The description matched with what I was talking about. If only I could get a picture of the complete set. I absolutely love the 80s toys. I honestly think the toys in that decade was the best of all times. Even many toys are coming back like My Little Pony and Care Bears and Strawberry Shortcake. Although it's not the same LOL. Anyway, enjoy!

Just posting a comment to go with the picture I posted- It was a yellow and red doll, some kind of robot or alien or both. 85-86 or so. The heart on it's chest pulled aside and I think you could press buttons underneath so that it talked/made noise. See my picture.

There was a toy that was late '80s, but maybe early '90s. It was, if I remember correctly, shaped sort of like a submarine with one side being neon pink and the other side being neon green. On the bottom of the toy was a black plastic hook. It came with a hobermansphere-like ball that you sat on the ground. It also had a string that you hooked one end of to something (door handle/knob, etc) and held the other end which had a handle. You sat the neon sub-thing on the string using two small pulleys that were in it. Lifting the end of the string that you were holding, the sub slid down to the other end. The object of the thing was to try to hook the hoberman-like ball with the hook on the bottom of the sub. I have searched but haven't been able to find the name of this toy. Any ideas ?
Spottedfeather - May 30, 2007 - Report this comment
Luke, I belive that you are refering to Spin-jas. As I recall some of the tops were shaped like little ninjas and others were shaped like sawblades. Of course, there were several other almost identical toys around the same time, so it might be one of them.

I have been trying to find this one stuffed dog that I used to have. I simply called him Ruff Ruff. He was brown with short legs. You pressed his darker brown nose and he barked. His bark was two together and then three together and then repeated. like: "ruff,ruff... ruff,ruff,ruff". Please email me at blinkey5@yahoo.com. It's been almost impossible for me to find since this is all I know about it. Thanks!!

Another toy I've been looking for was one that had sort of a movie slideshow. It was narrow at one end where the batteries went and had a place to put a cartridge in. The other end was round and larger where the projector part was. Unfortunately we left the batteries in for way too long after they went dead and they leaked. If you know anything please email me at blinkey5@yahoo.com. Thanks!!

I'm looking for an educational toy I had in the early 80s. It consisted of a yellow plastic suitcase-like box, and a number of different colored key-shaped pieces that each had a different word on them. You could hook the key pieces together to make a sentence and then place them on a track on the side of the yellow box, pull a string, and the key pieces were run through from one end of the box to the other. The box would say the word as each key piece fell off the end of the box, thus saying the entire sentence you constructed. I hope that's clear! I can't remember the name of the toy. Any clues?

To Jessica who asked about the educational toy - this was a variety of See n' Say - the Sentance Maker! I loved it. It was for sale in 1980-81 and came with a basic set of word tiles. You snapped the word tiles together and fed them into one end of the main box. You pulled the string and the box slowly pulled the entire sentance through and 'read' it in a very droning voice. Think it was a lot like the farmer's voice in the farm See n' Say. I had one of these and loved it to death (literally, it no longer exists). A great toy in my opinion!

Hi everyone! The toy I'm looking for was from the 80's and it was a movie projector, record player thingy. You could buy small records with this little plastic cartridge that had images on it. You inserted the cartridge into the toy, and as the record would beep then you would advance to the next frame (or maybe it advanced itself?) You could project the images on the wall, or you could switch it over to project on a small glass television like opening which was on the front of the record player. It was box shaped. It had to be early 80's maybe even late 70's.

Can anyone help me identify some dolls that I had as a child? There are two types I am looking to figure out. Both are fashion sized dolls. The one set each have curly reddish brown hair and came wearing pink princess dresses. The other set of dolls were either princesses or ballerinas. One had red hair and the other had black hair. They also came with lingerie. I wish I had more of a description. I'd be happy to photograph what I have if anyone is interested in helping me. The dolls also have bendable legs if that helps and are from the mid 1980s. Thank you so much!

Not sure if anyone will remember there. I remember buying them at the checkout area in kmarts and similar stores. It had a fold out comic like background picture, and there was another sheet that had numerous pictures of people, animals, characters etc that you would place on the sheet where you wanted a particular character and use a pencil to draw or scrible on the back of it and it would make it stay on the sheet. kinda peeled off like fake tattoos do. If anyone knows, i would be eternally greatful!

Sorry, this has nothing to do with those pictures. It's about an incredible toy line that somehow was bypassed by this site. In fact, there isn't even a letter for it. They're called Xpanders. The were vechicles that expanded (hence the clever name) and become these battle station/bases complete with a bunch of little soldiers. The white/cream ones were good, and the black ones were bad. They were the coolest. Anyone else remember these? Please add them to the site.

I've got in mind what I think is a particularly hard toy to find. I'm trying to remember the name for a series of toys that was out in the late 80s, early 90s (I can't remember which). Each toy was a plastic or vinyl ball with a hole in it. It came with a smaller "peg" piece that would be inserted into the hole. You would then squeeze the larger ball, creating pressure and eventually shooting the "peg" piece out. Each one of these toys looked like a creature or object of some sort. The one I remember clearly was; the larger ball was a shark, and the smaller "peg" was a diver. There may have been one that had an eyeball "peg" too. Also, I vaguely remember the commercial for them, with kids pounding down it with their fist and shooting the peg. I think the name of the toy may have been the made up sound they made when the kids bopped them. DOES ANYONE ELSE REMEMBER THESE THINGS??? HELP!

I got a toy in the early 80's that I can't remember the name of. It was a rubber/plastic King Kong type ape who you had chained back against a wall with yellow plastic chains, which plugged into the toy backing using 2 inch posts. The point of the game was to either keep inserting chains or removing them (I can't remember which), but he broke free if you did them in the wrong order. Does anyone have a clue which toy this was?

Orange Etch-A-Sketch type toy. There was one multi directional knob (which you could move like a joystick) on the bottom, and it drew in a circle in the top. You could turn the top circle to change the position of the pen. Also, there were little orange stencils about an inch and a half in diameter that you could put around the drawing knob. I believe I received it in 1982 or 1983 and I can't find it anywhere. Also, the toys sat on an incline when you sat it down. Any information would be great. Thanks.

I am trying to find the name of a toy I had for a birthday present in 1987 I think. It was a small (fitted in the palm of your hand) plastic pink and white cat. It had a really long purple fluffy tail. The tail came apart into 3 bits and reattached using velcro. If you squeezed the cats tummy its paws opened. This meant you could put the end of the tail inbetween the paws and then wear the cat as either a necklace or a bracelet depending on how many tail pieces you used. I think there were a range of them so you could mix and match colours. It was always my favourite toy. I would love to know if anyone else remembers it and its name so I could try and track one down.

The doll with the hair the grew out of the ponytail was made in 1987 by playskool. She was called Dolly Surprise. I still have one in the box. I also have the doll whose dress covered her house. I just looked at it trying to figure out what it is called and I could not find a name on it. It was made by knickerbocker in 1979. She has a suitcase that has the letter M on it so, I am guessing her name started with the letter M. I know I also have the cat with the tails that attach with velcro, but I am not sure of the name. I kind of think it was Furr-ever friends or something with Furr in the title. I will try to find it to see what its name is.

I'm looking for a series of toy vehicles that where made. The thing that they all had in common was that they had these little mushroom cap shaped items which would glow when exposed to light after a period of time. One of these vehicles; a smaller delta shaped one which was blue in color had some lights in it, so that when you stuck the mushroom shaped cap into it, it would expose the phosphorescent like glow part to the light, so that it would be glowing when it came out. Upon putting it in one of the other vehicles it would cause them to move until the glow of the little cap faded. They came in a variety of colors, the ones I remember the most being the blue kind of delta shaped one, another large white one which you could either push down on itself to make it a lower vehicle, or twist a knob to unlock it so that it would stand slightly higher. When it is at it's full height you could attach the blue vehicle to it, and carry it along with it as it moved. There was also another orange one which if I recall correctly had a small little rope with hook on the end, so that when charged it could pull things along. They seemed to be little space rover type things. I never knew the name of them when I was younger but I loved those things to death, but have not been able to find ANY information about them in years.

I'm looking for a toy that I had when I was in kindergarten, so that would have been either 1988 or 1989. It looked like a cassette tape, and there was a small magnetic board that folded up and I think you press a button or something to make it come out of the bottom. At the top was a door thing that you lifted up, and there were several small magnet like pieces in it. I think it was some sort of game, but I'm not sure. I know they came in several different colors though. The one I had was green, and the board was made to look like a map. One of my friends had a pink one, and the board on it looked like the inside of a mall, I think. I'd love to see if I can find one on ebay, but I don't really know where to begin.

And Wish Kitty, which was a yellow and light blue kitty with a star on it's belly. The other one I have is a yellow bear with a blue body that has a night sky picture on it.

I'm trying to remember te name of an educational toy I had as a child. It was a two inch thick tablet style learning device with rounded corners. You would insert cartridges, and coresponding flat plastic mats with pictures on them. pictures on the mat coresponded to a set of buttons on the surface of the toy. I remember it asking questions like "can you find the yellow truck?" and "do you see the cat?" I am trying to use it as an example for a class, and I can't remember the name. Any help would be great. Thanks Adam

Toy may have had suction cups to attach to bath wall. He may have come with a little floatation ring as well. Help me!

Hello, I am looking for someone who can tell me what toys I played with as a child because I want to collect them again but have no idea how they were called and have no picture either. Now they were about the size of star wars figures, the same material, sold on cardbacks in bubbles, but they were like little Barbie and Ken Dolls. I remember I had tens of girls, some had painted on clothes, others had real cloth clothes. I had three guys. They had clothes painted on. There was one blond dude with shorts, a blue sweater and sandals. Then there was a lightbrown haired one, long trausers, no idea about the rest anymore. And the last one had dark brown hair and a tuxedo. They also had this really cool car. Does anyone know what I am looking for? Thank you.

I used to be able to buy this toy at the front register of FedCo. It was a round, turquoise plastic pendant, about an inch and a half in diameter, with a rhinestone in the center. It could attach to a necklace, or wristband. More importantly, when you opened it up, it had plastic arms, legs and head that could flip out to transform the pendant into a girl. My friend also had a house for them, which was a stereo that would open up, and transform into their house. Any ideas?

Her head was very similar to Peachy and her Puppets...blonde hair, painted-on blue eyes that looked off to the side. She was a chubby little thing with dimples in her knuckles, knees, and elbows and was constructed entirely of vinyl. I though I had found her when I found Peachy and her Puppets except my doll was hollow and had a hole in her mouth where you could feed her a bottle and another hole in the bottom where she could make a wet diaper. She had like ball and socket joints at her shoulder and hips and a very high forehead. I would really appreciate any help on what on earth she was. Thanks guys. -J

Need help naming a late 80s doll/stuffed animal Okay this was a stuffed animal (mine was a grey kitty) but the body wasn't soft or squishy it was kind of solid and heavy. It came with a bib and a bottle. The animal's eyes were hard plastic with a little gap at the bottom. When you fed the animal with water from the bottle, the water would come out of their eyes like tears. The name of the toy was on the bib, I think.

It had these plates that you could put in around the joystick mechanism that helped you to make that shape on the round screen. Instead of shaking it you would turn the dial around the face (it was shaped like flower petals) to erase the image. Man, I loved that thing!

I have been looking for a few dolls I had and also a doll stroller. The stroller had two seats and an umbrella on the top. When you pushed it the umbrella would spin and it played music. I got it probably in 1981 or 1982. The oldest doll I got around 1980. It was a girl doll with blonde hair and her tongue would stick out. She came with a sucker and a pink ice cream cone that she could lick. I think her tongue even moved back and forth. I called her licky sugars but that wasn't the name. The second doll I had was a blonde baby doll. I got her Christmas 1980. You could feed her a bottle and her head would rock back and forth. I used to hold her by the head and watch her body swing back and forth! The last doll I am trying to find came out around 1980-1982. I think she was called No More Tears. You would give her a bottle with water in it and it would make her cry. In her hand was a handkercheif. On her arm was a lever that you moved back and forth to make her hand move. You could position her hand so that she would wipe away her own tears. Also to Marieken, are the dolls you are talking about called Glamour Gals? They were made by mattel using the same molds they used for barbie only they were only a couple inches tall. I loved those!

There were also little pieces such as eyes, lips, noses etc that could snap on the board to make a complete picture. Does anyone remember this? I have googled it and found nothing.

Does anyone know what this is called? I so want to try to find another one. It was a bath toy that I had in the 80's(made between 83 and 86). Mine was a cobalt blue color. It looked like a martian or alien that had either pointy ears (1 on each side of its head) or maybe they were horns. He was in a permanent sitting position was all one piece with a tail 2 arms and 2 legs. On the bottom of his tail he had a blue suction cup and 1 suction cup at the end or each arm and foot.He was about 4-5 inches from the bottom of his bum to the top of his head. He was made of a soft squeezable rubber material. He was wearing a white hooded bath robe and came with a yellow animal or alien friend. The yellow animal friend may have squirted water and had only 1 yellow suction cup on 1 end. My cousin had one just like mine, except hers was a magenta pink color with the white bath robe. I can't remember what animal/alien friend that one came with or what color ot was. I really want to try to find one of these things, but I have no idea what they were called or what toy company made them. Anyone?? Anyone??

I'm trying to remember the name of a toy I had in the early to mid-eighties - probably more early than mid. It was an educational toy like a simple computer, but rather than an LED screen, there were several thin (thinner than a credit card), plastic cards (double sided) that slid into a holder and each card was a different activity. There was a keyboard (and I recall the "keys" being like the buttons on the early Mr. Professors - tic tac size) and more plastic cards (smaller than the other ones) that were laid over the keyboard to correspond to different types of cards. Depending on the card and the keyboard overlay, you could play a song or answer questions. I don't recall the toy being able to "speak", but it had other audio features. I recall it being blue in color and rather heavy, but was portable and probably no more than 12" high by 10" wide. I can remember playing this thing for hours - and even what some of the songs that I learned how to play on the cards. I just can't remember the name of the thing.

I used to have this little plush cat, I called him Jack. Unsure if that was his real name. He came in a little doghouse like thing made out of cardboard I believe. (I think it had a red roof if that helps) Jack was about 4 inches long, purple with green eyes and I believe at one point he may have had a brown collar. He was very similar in appearance (the way his feet were arranged) to a pound puppy. He would lay on his belly with his four paws out to his sides. The material was a soft. The best way to describe it is a mix of valure and flannel to the best of my memory. His eyes were very green and had black pupils. They were glass I believe like you would find on a teddy bear.. not fabric. I desperatley want to find out what he was and if I can find another like him. I had a look thorugh the toy list and he kind of sounded like a Sunburst pet.. as I believe he 'might' have come with a birth cirtificate.. I could be wrong though. I was about 3 when I got him.

I remember a toy when I was a little girl back in the 80's early 90's. I think it was like a watch styled toy but it wasnt a watch. Insted of the face of a watch, it had this round box thing that had a jewel on the top. If you opened the box, you could unfold an animal that was inside and close the box again. Then you would have an animal and the box would be it's tummy. Then you could open the box again and fold the little animal back up inside it. It was plastic as i remember and didnt do much other than that. I just remember how pretty it was. Any one else remember this toy? I would love to find one on ebay for my daughter but i cant remember what htey are called.

In the middle 70s or early 80s I had a toy in which I do not remember the maker of this toy or its name. It is best described as a one handle hand held view projector in which you look into a single lense and takes a removable cartridge containing a miniature reel. Its shape was somewhat in the form of the letter "T". There was a handle on the bottom of the projector and a crank on the right side of the toy in which you would spin clockwise to make the animation play as you look inside of the view lense. One particular film that I remember this toy playing is a Mickey mouse cartoon with ghosts, a haunted house and the house being flooded with water as mickey mouse made his escape on the broken door of the room. This was such an awesome toy to have been made in that period of time with real moving animation and manual activation (no batteries required). I have done many searches online and have not found anything similar. Can someone please help? I would love to see this amazing toy again and possibly own another one of my own.

You put a small blue ball in the cone and then punched the pump and the ball went flying up in the air and you were supposed to catch it back in the cone.

They were tiny plush animals (I had a turtle, a mouse, and a hedgehog or porcupine) maybe 1.5-2.5". The hedgehog I remember very vividly--it had a shiny, silver metal clip on the belly. They all had the clips. They were to clip-on to your pockets or clothes or shoe-laces. Does anyone remember these?

Thank you Jess, but i looked up the Hollie Hobby dolls and they don't look like the doll i had. I don't remember if she had any clothes on or what they looked like but i know her body was blue and white checkered. Thank you anyway though.

I am wondering if anyone has seen this kind of toy. I guess it would fall in the catagory of junk-five and dime toys. It was a plastic T.V. set roughly about the size of a box of "Sucret" lozengers. The screen cover came off to reveal two spools with a slit in each of them. There was usually about 4 or 5 comics or stories on a paper roll. You would load the paper roll onto the spools (very much like an old 8mm camera) and then replace the cover. The spools had two knobs that sat outside of the plastic T.V. You would turn the top one in a winding motion. The story of comic on the paper roll would appear in the plastic window. This was a toy that was sold in the 60s-90s. It was very cheap no more than 1 or 2 bucks and probably was seen in drugstores, grocery stores, five and dimes. Does anyone remember this toy?

I am looking for the name of 80's aToy/Game: That consisted of 2 Pirate ships (one Red, one Blue) with Sails made out of yellow plastic (on which tiny pirates could hook on. Pirates would be launched from a toy cannon provided for each of the 2 players). The object of the game was to launch & hook as many pirates onto the opposite ship in order to tilt it over and WIN the game! My brother and I played for hours on ends! It was simple yet satisfying when the enemy boat sunk! If you know what this is, or how it was called, please let me know!!!!

You were supposedly supposed to be able pull the arm off at about mid bi-cep and the leg at mid thigh and the would go back on it. after awhile they quit sticking. You could buy a playset that was either a lab as Snake Blood Drinker described, but I remember a volcano playset that i had that had a clear slime to put inside it.

I've been trying to find a toy that I had in the 80's. It was a flower pot and you water it and then a doll was in the flower, the whole thing was plastic and the doll looked like a kiddle. There was a series of these. Then from reading the messages on here I remembered another doll I can't remember the name of. It was kind of like a sweet secret doll, but instead it had perfume in it...maybe it was from the sweet secret line? Not really sure...

I just talked to my son...got more details...he says it was a red plastic box that had a blue disk with numbers on it that you placed over paper...you started at #1 and inserted a pencil into a sort of groove, followed a sort of stencil outline, made maybe a line, then moved onto #2 and made another line, and continued thru all the numbers on the disk...until you had made a complete car, motorcycle, etc It sounds kinda like a Spirograph kinda concept only you made a picture of a vehicle instead of just a design...Any idea of what this was called???

Hi everyone-I am stumped remembering the name of one of my favorite toys from 1980/81-I remember the approximate year because I brought it for show and tell when I was in 1st grade. It was a hand puppet, like a hairy octopus...cute though-it had a white GLOVE on the top and the monster was under the glove...when you stick your hand in the sleeve, it looks as though you put your hand in the glove but you are really sticking your fingers in the 5 appendages. When you wiggled your fingers, the toy made it look to others like you were "controlling" the movements through the glove! Sound familiar to anyone?!! MOMMACETA-Spirograph sounds right, or Spirodoodle? this sounds familiar....

Hi Alison...I have no idea about the 'glove' puppet...but i have 'googled' every kind of description for that as well as the car/motorcycle drawing kit my son had with no luck! I remember him playing/drawing with it for hours...the blue disk was about the size of a CD (there were multiple disks depending on what vehicle you were going to end up with). It was like small sections of the complete picture were mixed up and spread out all over the disk in a sort of stencil format. when you lined up the #1 on the disk to the #1 on the frame you then made that line/shape with your pencil...continuing with each successive number until you completed all the #'s and had made whatever picture that disk made (a car, motorcycle,etc). I believe there were girl versions too- but i don't remember what the pictures were for girls to draw. My son must have been about 8-12 when I bought it...so I guess it must have been about 1990-1994? We are going nuts trying to figure out what it was called!

I'm trying to figure out what these cat dolls I used to have were: They had humanoid soft cloth bodies covered w/ fur and hard plastic hands, feet, and faces, kind of anthropomorphized but still feline, and each came from a different country and dressed accordingly - white cat w/ purple clothes/hat from France, red cat with black clothes/hat from Russia, and so forth. I guess they were somewhere between 6 and 9 inches tall. Anybody seen these?

I am trying to find the name of a large plastic kids construction kit all the pieces were either blue, white, red, green, yellow, black. Some of the pieces were plastic boxes with lots of holes where you could put screws through and hold them together. It had some black wheels and different sized slats with holes in I think mostly in blue but I think there were other coloured ones too depending on the size. You could put it all together to make things such as ride on toys.

Anyone remember these little plastic dolls from the 80s? I have a picture in the gallery at the top of this page. Some had clothes and others came only with diapers and bibs. I think I remeber them coming with nursery furniture too. They weren't generic named I don't think. they are 5" tall and are made with a very soft smooth plastic. I think I had got them the same time I got my Bouncin' Babies so they may have been on the shelf in stores at the same time if that helps.

I had a doll when I was small. It is from the early 80'sI used to call her Prisella. My puppy ate her anyway she was my favorite doll and I would love another one for my daughter. I think the doll was bought from a Hallmark store. It was a styrofoam head with a soft nylan face. Blue hair and the hair was like needle point floss. The eyes were littleblack felt tear drops. The doll had a real pretty dress and skinny body holding a flower and the mouth was sewn with thread. I have a picture of me holding her if anyone wants to email me i'M AT Evillin@earthlink.net Also There was this soft white cat that I had with a bell sewn inside the tail and a bow around the neck the cat had green eyes lond tail and paws. skinny body too.

The little film projector was a Fisher Price toy. It was similar to the view master in that you looked through it to see the pictures. This was a lot cooler though because it was like watching movies. You cranked the handle on the side to make the picture move. You could even make it go backwards. It made the coolest sound when you cranked the handle. It used to pretend that I was a news camera reporter with it. I wish I knew what happened to it.

I'm trying to think of the name of a toy I had in the 80s. It was not a Light Brite, but something similar. It had a sliding screen on top, and you'd poke it with an attached pen and the light from a colored bulb inside would shine through the hole. You could make patterns on the screen, and if you wanted to erase it, you just pulled the screen up and back down.

Hi All!! I need help in finding 2 items: The first one was a Snoopy doghouse that you build. It came with a green colored base (I think) that had four "L" slots on each corner. You would place each of the four white "walls" on these slots along with a red roof to build the house. The roof had a slight opening at the top where you would fit snoopy on. He wouldn't fall because his back had an elongated "notch" that would fit in the opening. It was pretty simple to put together and came out sometime in the 70's or early 80's. The second one is a Disney wind-up T.V. toy that played "small world" and the screen would "flow" as it showed images of Disney characters. I don't know if it was Mattel that made it or not but I bought it...ok, my parents' bought it (lol), in the early to mid 80's. I've been trying to find these items on the internet but haven't had any luck yet. Thanks everyone!!

The eggs were small metal balls that would stick to the snake's magnetic head to allow you to carry it back to your nest.

Hi, I am in desperate need to locate the name of a toy from the 80's (possibly late 70's). No one I know had one of these or remembers it. I had a toy that was like an animal dollhouse. It resembles a log and had a handle and inside carried the animals and their furniture. The log was not plastic, made of fabric but still held the shape of a log. They were Beavers or something similar. You could open the log and it rolled out and you could set up their house and even a yard area. The animals were small, maybe only 2-3 inches in height. I had a family of four, again I really think they were beavers but I'm not sure. The log also was not vary large. I know they are definitely not Sylvanian families. Any ideas?

I am trying to remember a doll that I have she has straight green hair and wears a green dress that is green and white striped or a sort of checker pattern, she has a bonnet of that same color as well and she has a white apron with a green leaf on it. I remember her features were painted on her, she is not Rainbow Brite or Strawberry Shortcake or Holly Hobby. What is she?

There were these insanely scary goblin-ish puppet-like toys in the 80's. There were 3 or 4 different ones (the white one is most vivid in my mind) and they basically looked like a head with tiny arms attached to their sides. You could put your hand inside them to move the eyes and the mouth. If anyone remembers what they were called, please help. This is driving me CRAZY!!

They had masks and their arms were like robotic looking. I'm sorry that that is such a bad description but I've been trying to find these for years. 6 inches or so tall, round/circular base (might have even been hollow) and they were all robots with robot arms and face masks.

I have a plastic stove and sink set with Sesame Street characters on it.I have been searching the internet all night looking for another one or for anyone who also might of had one.They are mainly green and about 3 feet high or so. They are two seperate pieces, and they have doors that open on the bottom. The sink from what I can remember actually works and there are cardboard pictures on the back...one possibly Big Bird. They are probably late 70's or early 80's. They're in mom's attic and I havn't looked at them in a very long time. Any info in appreciated :)

Vanessa (February 28, 2008)- This is a tricky one! I no longer have the actual flower pots but I do still have the dolls and the little watering pitchers. Marked on the dolls and the pitcher it says "BUDDY L" and Hong Kong. So the company is the Buddy L Toy Company but the strange thing is they pretty much only make toy steel trucks. Maybe the manufacturer name will give you some place to start, even though I still haven't been able to find anything! "I've been trying to find a toy that I had in the 80's. It was a flower pot and you water it and then a doll was in the flower, the whole thing was plastic and the doll looked like a kiddle."

Im looking for the name of some small figures, in the hope of buying some from somewhere. The figures were about 1 1/2" tall hard plastic and had notches around the bases. they stood on a circular podium about 1 1/2" tall too that was hollow. around the base was numbers for strength, agility and the like. Inside the base was small skulls that were placed on the notches on the figure when you won a roll off. There were many different ones all different colours, when you fought against other figures you would win their skulls so you knew who you'd beaten. I think they were from the 1990's.

Jump rope thingy. I used to have this jump rope, but instead of holding onto handles at each end, the ends were connected to this bar thing. You would move the bar in front of you the whole time, and that would cause the rope to spin, if if you were really good, you could jump over the bar itself. Anyone remember this?

Please help me figure out the name of a collection of mini robot toys I used to play with back in the mid-to-late eighties. These were mini robots didn't transform, were all the same and came in different colors. They were about 3 inches tall perhaps? You could link them together: the head of one could connect to the feet of the other, or the head could fit in the hole on the chest of another. There was also a hole in front of the legs that allowed the head of another robot link to it, and maybe even another hole in each shoulder. Doing this along with other parts, you could build larger robots or vehicles. The kits came with wings, cockpits, fists and heads for building jets, larger robots or other vehicles. One thing that sticks out in my mind is that the little men that go in the cockpit pieces were just tiny silver, immovable pieces. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

I'm looking for two seperate things. One are little rock like things that you put in water and shake them up and they come out as jewels. The other is sort of a tea party set that was 2 cups, 2 plates, and a pitcher and it had a picture or Barbie on it and the cups and pitcher turned pink when cold liquid was put in them. Any ideas?

I'm looking for a toy and I don't know what to call it which is hindering my search. It was a little plastic/rubber animal on a spring, that you would suction to a surface; then you push the animal down, loading the spring, and eventually the force would be too great for the suction and the animal would unexpectedly pop up. Do you know what this is? Better yet, do you know where I can find these? Thank you!

My sister and I have been racking our brains for countless months trying to come up with the name of a series of tiny plastic dolls with realistic neon hair and they were bright colors and came with plastic furniture in odd zig-zag shapes. We believe they were Mattel because we used to buy them at the Mattel store with the Barbie dolls. They would have come out in the late 80s or early 90s. Please help if you know what they are called. My sister thinks they were Jazzies or something similar... Please submit a link showing a picture if you think you remember these. Thanks.

I'm trying to remember what a certain toy I had when I was a kid was called. THe best I can describe it was it was a battery operated car that you would "fill with gas" with a little toy gas pump by inserting it in a hole near the rear window. This would cause a series of dials on the bottom of the car to spin in one direction, untill the read "FULL". The motor would then stop. You would remove the gas nozzle and it would again begin to run, this time the wheels would turn, and the dials would go the ohet way untill the read "empty" and the car would shut off. Does anyone remember this, and what it was called or where I could find it again? Thanks in advance for your time, Jeff

I used to have this motorized toy truck, it was mostly plastic but had a metal body like a tonka. It had a motorized winch, working headlights, and 2 shifters on the roof, one was for fwd/rev and the other was lo/hi. it was silver with red stripes and had a cartoon version of the truck on the sides kicking up a cloud of dust. It was definatly an 80s toy and was styled like a ford/chevy type truck. I don't remember exactly what it was supposed to be. The truck never worked as I got it at a yard sale in the early 90s. I was dumb and tore this toy up as a kid, but I would love to know what it was called so I can try and find another one. And I know it wasn't a stomper4x4, but is it possible that it is a tonka? I never heard of tonka making one like this, but my buddy had one of these too. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Hey, Jeff, my nephew had one of those cars that you "filled up" with a little gas pump and had the thing on the back that would read Full. I have been trying to figure out what that car was too. The one he had was a 80s Black Trans Am, it looked just like the Knight Rider car. If memory serves me right, I think it was made my majoret or tootsie toy. His never worked, we just used it as a Delorean stand in, when we played "BTTF" as it was the only car he had that was sporty enough to be used as such. I'm glad someone else had one of these too.

There was a cheap toy in the early 80's I LOVED getting. It was typically in discount stores or checkout lines and it was a small hard plastic doll (3 or 4 inches tall) and it came with a couple of outfits that were hard plastic and snapped together around the doll (they were made of hard plastic and then like cut in half and had little tabs that poked into little holes to keep them together on the dolls). You had to break the outfits off of a grid similar to models where you break the pieces out before assembling. These things were cheap and I LOVED them but can't remember what they were called.

Here's a difficult one for you guys. Back in the early 80's in the United Kingdom, I had this toy which consisted of good guys (lets call them spacemen) and bad guys (lets call them martians). The martians were all black, with a detachable red colored head, their feet had small round circle bases with teeth, that would fit into small metal bases. The spacemen were yellow, similar pose and had a bubble like transparent plastic helmet. The martians had space style "blocks" or "parts" that could be attached to each other to create all manner of strange vehicles. The parts would be almost always colored green and black. One of the parts was the shape of a flying saucer, with a rotating cockpit (weighted at the bottom to rotate with gravity I think), and also I remember there being black claw like objects, with a spring at the back of them for that spring loaded gripping effect. The spacemen had similar vehicle pieces only I believe those were yellow and red colors. They once appeared on a childrens show around the same time, the show in question either was fingerbob, or in a similar format. Where the University professor looking presenter showed children how to make things with household items (no it wasn't blue peter), and happened to use these figures as a demonstration to some playset he showed you how to build. I'm unaware of any comic or cartoon connected with this particular toy. I cannot for the life of me find out what these toys were called, but would love to know. They weren't Manta Force, or Lego, I know that much heh.

I'm wondering if anyone remembers a portable record player (played real records) that closed and latched like a suitcase. Mine was black and white checkered and had a plastic front "bubble" panel that had red, green and blue lights behind it that would flash when played. I had it in 1981-82 and I have NO clue what brand it was or who made it. Any thoughts!?

I played with these toys in the 80s that I have always thought were Weebles but now that I've lookd up Weebles, I see that I'm wrong. They were little hard plastic figures with segmented cylindrical bodies. These had holes in the bottom and I think they fit down over pegs in their houses and cars and stuff. I picture the bodies being different primary colors as if they were clothes. They had round heads. I *think* I had a bath toy "house" for them of some sort that stuck to the side of the tub or the wall above it. Please help if you have any ideas!

Hi:) There's a toy from the 80's that i know i'm not making up but no one seems to know what i'm talking about. It was these hard plastic little dolls and they came with a big doll house and all the dolls had magnets on the bottom and they came with magnetic keys. So you'd pu the doll in the house and the key would go under the floor and you could move the dolls with the key. Ring a bell for anyone????

Trying to find out the name of a set of plastic dolls from the 1980s or early 1990s. The dolls themselves were very tiny (about 1 inch tall), and they came enclosed in tiny plastic objects (the objects were about 1 and 1/2 inches to 2 inches tall). One of them came in a plastic ice cream (the top was a pink swirl and the bottom was a cone with flat base). You opened the top and you could get the doll out. Another one came inside a purple plastic clock. There were more, but I can't remember what object they came in. If anyone can help that would be very much appreciated. Even if you only knew the brand of toys they were, that would be great!

This particular toy had a hard plastic case where the pieces would be held in fitted slots. You would take out the pieces, build your monster, and play around with it. The plastic case was slightly larger than a playing card. My first thought was Monster in my Pocket but that is incorrect. Any Ideas???

Trying to remember a toy...It was a submersible tank that had belt tires. I know it was battery operated, no remote control or anything. You just turn it on, and let it slowly pull itself forward. Of course the cool part is that it could go underwater. This frequented my bathtub playtime until it got all soap scummy. But no matter, I think the shell could pop off, but don't quote me. It was about half the size of a vhs tape, (thinking in 80's terms here), and had a little man that you could put in as a pilot. The little man was no taller than an inch from what I can recall. The theme was more futuristic and sci-fi. I can't remember much else beyond that, so I wouldn't be surprised if anyone can't figure this out. Cheers!

The GLADIATOR GIRL figures are called Golden Girls- Guardians of the Gemstones. They had rubber bands inside, holding on legs/arms. They tended to break more than the She ra dolls, which means fewer of these are available today (and so they are a little more valuable). Looks like Rubee, Golden Girl, and Wild One in the pic.

I ring bells with so many people other people can draw the toy in question but none of us can remember the name. the toy is probably from the 86 - 90, it may be a bit after or before that. i think i was about 7 or 8 when it came out. it was a large toy, like a hula hoop. it woudl be classified as an out door toy. it was thicker and came in 2 pieces that snapped together. Each half of the circle was a different colour. You formed a big rim like a thin tire rim. The hoop had 2 handles on it. you put a large ball in the rim and then flicked your wrist. The point was to spin it around as fast as possible without losing the ball. you could do tricks like spin it around with your arm in the middle, or your head... occasionally you would get a black eye... it was great. i loved this thing. i initially thought it was called Tuba Ruba,since i owned that, but when i googled that the images were the other game i owned. Im at a loss and REALLY hope someone can give me a name for this toy, it will drive me to my grave. i have seen it descried on other sites, and none have answers visable! im hoping some of you can help

I am trying to remember the name of a toy that was most likely from the 90s. It was a little stuffed shaggy dog that came in brown and white or grey and white patterns. He had holes in the fabric on the bottom of him so you could attach him to this plastic "leash" contraption. The long leash had a red plastic piece at the bottom coming out of a little box on roller wheels. You would slide the red piece inside the stuffed animal and it would bounce up and down while making a yipping sound so you could walk your stuffed dog. Does anybody know what I am talking about?

Does anyone remember a 70's/80's toy that was plastic and had hollow tubes that squished like an accordion. Tubes were in several different colors and were appromimately 4-5 inches long. You connect the tubes to make a long piece and twist it into different shapes. When you squished the tube they were about half that size and when you pulled on them they made a popping sound as they expanded. Seems like they had connector pieces and several different head pieces to make animals or something??. Couldn't remember what they were called when my kids asked about them.

Somebody asked about a building set where the pieces were like accordions and snapped together. These were called POPOIDS and they bent in all different directions and made a crinkly echoing sound when you pulled them or pushed them.

Hi guys, in the early eighties, i was bought a red plastic robot figure. I got it for xmas. Its main feature was a grey rubber turning featureless head (a bit like a daleks) which squirted water, and for some reason it had a grey suction cup base which swivelled. The backstory, was that they were some kind of robot hero force. The figure, if I remember correctly, came with a comic book, and the figure itself was quite chunky. It may have been made by playskool or similar, but I'm not sure. If you guys know what I mean, don't hesitate. .

My cousins had an art set with interchangeable plates that allowed you to create your own superhero/monster by changing its head, torso, and legs. You put the plates in place, put a piece of paper over the plates, and then ran a pencil over it to transfer to the paper. Any ideas what it was called?

I've got a tough one for you girls. In the late 80s I had a very small doll (probably about 3 inches tall or so) that came with a plastic oven that you could open up. It transformed into an awesome pizza parlor with all sorts of cute accessories. When you finished playing all the accesories fit into a compartment and you could fold the playset back into the shape of an oven. It WAS NOT Sweet Secrets but the concept was sort of similar since a larger object broke down into some sort of playset. I WAS NOT Polly Pocket. The playset was more along the size of the Sweet Secret playsets. The little dolls that came with them had posable arms and removable clothing. This has driven me crazy for years. PLEASE help! :)

I will not be surprised if no one knows what I'm talking about. I have been searching for a small (about 2 or 2 1/2 inches) figure from the 80's. The figure was orange (There was a purple one, as well) and had an enlarged bald head and look like a cross between a troll (fantasy trolls not the toy trolls with the hair) and a caveman. He held a brown club but the rest was a darkish orange color. It ws made of the same kind of plastic as 'Monster's in my Pocket' (slightly bendy but not poseable). I have been searching for, at least, a name for this toy since 1987 when I lost it to a lawnmower. I don't know if it was part of a set or a generic knockoff toy. Please help.

The lid to the coffin was at the top of the arm and was held up by the bones and would fall as you pulled the bones out from top to bottom.

I had a particular Colorform set when I was very young (early 1980's). It was a house with different rooms and family members, furniture, food, etc. that could be placed all around. Everyone I have asked sends me to Miss Cookie but it is NOT like any of the pictures I've seen. Her houses were all pink and blue and the pieces were only in 2 different colors. I'm told that there were several releases of the Miss Cookie playhouse set, and one was in the early 1980s but I just can't seem to find pictures that match my memory. I remember pieces like an apple pie, a carton of eggs, and a bathtub which I thought had bubbles in it. They were not limited to kitchen items.

Unknown but very cool education item! Ok so I used to play with this toy in my classroom back in the 80's and it used to be at my local public library as well. My friend also had one that we played with sometimes at her house. It was an electronic toy . The one I played with was white and square in shape. It sat up and it had a touch mechanism. You put big cards on the front of it like the USA map, states, parts of the world, and you had to identify that particular item that was labeled by a number. You also stored these large cards in the back of it. It had little red lights that lit up on the edges of it. Now I'm not sure if this educational toy actually came out in the late 80's, early 90's but I know I played with it in that time frame. Does anybody have a clue what I am talking about and what is the name of it?

When I was about 4 (so we're talking 1981), I had a bath toy. I only dimly recall it. It was an animal, I think a dog. I think it was brown. It had two or three foam rollers across the bottom. It had a place inside of it where you could insert a bar of soap. The soap would flow down onto the foam rollers and you could wash yourself. I remember the rollers combined with the squishing of the soap did not exactly produce the quietest bath-- maybe this is why my mother secretly threw it away one day?

I'm trying to remember the name of these toys I used to see on tv when I was little; I never actually owned one but I really wanted to. They were little castle playsets, and I remember that they came in pastel kind of colors and the plastic was very glittery. I think they each had a key and a keyhole in the base that you used to open them (but they were NOT Precious Places). They each came with a princess and some little animal friends for her, like a baby dragon and whatnot, and I think the biggest castle might have had a horse and carriage. The figures were small, not the size of Barbie dolls or anything, but more like the size of Precious Places figures even though they were not the same thing. I hope someone knows these; I can't even begin to guess that they were called!

Does anyone remember a clear green action figure from the 70's or 80's. I remember you could see through all or part of it and I think it was of the Jolly Green giant. I don't know if it was a special thing or a mail-in offer or what. My Mom bought it for me at a garage sale around 1989 or 1990. I think the mower kid next door cut it in half and I lost track of the half I found in the dirt later on. I think it was between 3-6 inches. I was a kid and as a 6ft tall 260 pound man...it is tough to remember how big this action figure was. It was an all clear figure and it was green. It was similar to the Iceman that Toybiz released and that is part of the reason I decided to buy Iceman. It reminded me of the toy I had. A CLEAR GREEN FIGURE.

i had an educational set of books in the early 80s. each book would have a story and then a series of multiple choice questions about the story. it came with a gold metal pen that would light up when you answered the questions correctly. each booklet was 3x5 inches and had plastic binding on the end like a flip book. email me at jenniferhelmin@aol.com

trying to find out about 3 toys: #1- tabletop driving game, red colored toy with a black wheel. you could change lanes and shift gears to avoid other cars on the road. i think it was around in the late 80s #2- talking lap computer. gray in color with interchangeable cartridges (math, reading, etc.) it also had spiral booklets of games. you would match the cartridge with the booklet and press the "go" or "play" button & since it was located in a different spot on every game that's how the computer would know what game you selected. #3- squishy hand puppets from toys r us, i had one of the dominos noid and my brother had howdy doody. they may not even have names but i would love to find one. thanks for reading

I'm looking for a toy I had when I was young. It was a learning system with an owl that lit up when you had the correct answer on the page. It came in a briefcase type container with multiple pages of things to work on like reading and math. Apparently it was sold door to door. I think the Owl was called Oscar. If anyone has any information about this please let me know!

Hi folks. My brother and I have been trying to remember what the name of a toy we used to have is. It was a plastic, yellow book that opened up and you could put in sort of "cartridges" but not in the classical sense. It was more like a sheet of plastic with characters on it, and the characters could move. It would travel along a track and tell a story. You could shine a flashlight through it and project it onto a background. My sister thinks it's Storytime Theater, but it's definitely NOT the same Storytime Theater toy they make today. It was Disney-themed, with one of the stories definitely including Mickey Mouse. It might have come with an audio cassette to narrate the story. Please e-mail me at damonius+disneytoy@gmail.com if you know what it is!

I've got the answer to one! The hair clips/bracelets/necklaces with the tacky makeup colors inside, and you had to twist the makeup piece off its base to use it, was called FAZZ. There is a commercial of it up on YouTube. Here's a toy I need to know about: Circa 1984-1987, it was a series of plastic jewelry. Each set came with white pearlized pop-beads and plastic rhinestones that snapped into a plastic casing, so you could "Create" your own jewelry design. There was also a jewelry box that you could decorate by snapping different colored rhinestones into. I've looked ALL OVER and can't find a single thing about these jewelry sets! I loved them!

For the life of me, I cannot remember this toy. It was a miniature carry along doll house. It was similar to "Polly Pocket" I'm think it was either made by blue box or blue bird. It folded out, I believe & had two stories. It came with small furniture & people, the people weren't posable they had little circles on the bottom of them & the house itself had cutouts of where you could place them. That's about all I remember. It's been driving me crazy for ages..I just can't seem to find anything on these little doll houses!!

I had a toy in the 80s that was a large plastic maze. I think it was maybe green and orange. You put a marble into it, then you moved a tiny joystick to make the floor of the maze tilt to move the marble through the maze to the end. It was kind of like Marble Madness, but it wasn't a video game. Any clue what this was? I really loved it! I want to buy one on eBay, but I can't find it searching for stuff like "marble maze game" and other similar searches.

Need the name of a toy/toyline. I used to have this toy when I was a kid. I am guessing it came out around 1988-1989. It was a small (about 8 inch by 4 inch) armored military boat that I think had all kinds of doors, hidden guns, opened up in the front and I think had another vehicle inside, and it came with very small (about 1 inch) action figure that only bent in half for the purpose of sitting. I thought it was "Army G.E.A.R." at first because of the action figure, but I couldnt find anything that looked like it when searching through pics of army gear, but the figures are similar in size. I remember playing with my Army gear stuff with it, and I am pretty sure I got this toy around the same time (if not the same time) I got Army Gear toys, so I think it might have been made by Galoob, but after intense research, I still have yet to find it. Please please please help me figure out what this toyline was, I have been searching for 2 days non stop trying to figure it out.

Back in Christmas of 1983, I got one of the "hot" gifts back then. It was a plastic belt, with a car launcher as the buckle. I believe it came with a Hot Wheels type of car, but I could be wrong on that. You could unloop the belt and turn it into a track. The buckle housed a small matchbox-like car you could launch along the track. I don't remember who made the belt or what it was called. The only thing I remember was that the plastic belt/track was blue. It may have had yellow or red stripes. Someone suggested it might have been a Wrist Racer, but I distinctly recall it was a belt. I wore it to school one day. Does anyone remember what this could be?

Each vehicle you bought came with a little diagram on the back explaining the technical details of the tank in question. The toys were pretty high quality, with some ingenuous vehicle designs.

I'm trying to find a name of those toys that you get at zoos - where there is an animal on a stand, and you squeeze two buttons, the animal falls down. You let go of the buttons and they pop back up. The animal body is filled with little rubber bands so it falls down when you lessen the tension by pushing the buttons in. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Where can I get these?

Did anyone ever figure out what the car was that had the little gas pump and the dials on the bottom that'd go from "empty" to "full" when you would fill it up with the gas pump? I think it may have been modeled after a red trans am, but I have no idea what it was called. This was from 1985-87.

So I got the name of it. It was called "fuel and go firebird". Now if only I could find one to buy....ebay had nothing :(

The blonde doll in the yellow onesie is a no-brand doll still sold in Family Dollar stores, and still comes in similar clothes to those she wore in the 80s. Depending on the price od the playset, she'll come with a dress, a blanket, a bottle, and various other "baby things".

I had a couple of toy dinosaursin the 90's. They were similar to Barney, anthropomorphic and and cartoonish. They were very colorful, made of plastic, hollow (but not in a way that could be indented), and if I remember correctly had a tuft of plastic hair on their heads. The one I remember best was mainly yellow. Does anyone know the toys I am talking about?

Wow, my daughter was born in 1988 - didn't realize so many were so sentimental about so many of those toys. I probably still have some here or there - am just in the process of getting rid of things. In 2007 on here Tiffany wanted to know about a skating rink with a magnet type key that would move the people. I don't know, but it may be the Pretty Playhouse dollhouse et. al. I have a whole set my kids never played with, although it isn't new or wasn't when I received it from someone. I think the keys lit up lights and that kind of thing - would have to look at it. But I think that is what it was called - when I come across it I will confirm it - hopefull soon when the weather warms up - in the garage.

One of those maybe pollypocket, but who knows if something came before polly pocket. the little robot guys with the buttons were neat. One you put little cards in and responded to the cards. shouldn't the name be on it somewhere? the mattel 1986 one is either a bunny or a puppy, but I can't remember what it was.

I wish I had pictures of them but I need to know the name/type of dolls these are. I no longer remember what they were called and it is driving me nuts! There were several dolls in the set all about 16" tall. They had a barbie type shape over all but were not Super-size Barbies! They came in neat fashions. I had a blonde in a safari outfit with pith helmet and boots as well as a brunette with green eyes in a yellow bikini, green sarong and a straw hat. They reminded me of a very cheap knock off of the collector doll Alex by Tonner Dolls.

Then you put the bridges on it to cover the middle area that is the base of the case and you put your cars on it. I have no idea who made this toy or what it is called. Thanks for the suggestion!!

I posted the picture of the plush bug... Jenny, no one has given me any responses at all and you are the first that's even mentioned it. The only clue is the tag which says "McCrory Corporation", which my father said was an old dime store basically but they shut down years ago. When he thought about it, he couldn't remember the name but he did come up with things like "jitter bug, chitter bug and glitter bug"... Unfortunately, those didn't lead to anything on google. Maybe that will jog your memory but who knows. My sister said it was from a show that I watched all of the time when I was little. She said Rainbow Brites and though they do look similar in some ways, it's definitely not it! Maybe it's some sort of spin off? Please let me know if you come up with anything!

Lauren, I don't know about the toy you're referring to, but I'm pretty sure you're confusing the commercial for the Pocket Rockers commercial of the 80s, which was set to the tune of 'Down on the Corner.' "Down on the corner, out in the streets, Pocket Rockers are playing ..." Does that help?

Have been searching for the name of a toy I had, probably in the early 80's. My memory is a bit hazy on the details, but it was a black (I think) square, or possibly juke box shaped, handheld electronic toy. It had buttons near the top, that selected different games and then it had buttons set in a square, that lit up. One of the games I remember playing on it was like a concentration or memory. When you push one of the buttons a song would play. One of the songs was "We all live in a yellow submarine" then it would time you with a beeping tone until you pushed another button, I believe it buzzed you if you got it wrong, and if you got it right would do the baseball, "da da da Da da Da charge!" tune. I'm usually pretty good at researching these things, but I can't find it anywhere and my family doesn't remember it. I know I'm not crazy! lol

I have been able to find most of my fav toys from the 80's, but there is one that I cannot. I had a orange plastic briefcase that was shaped like a crayon. I really want to say is was by Crayola, but I am not 100%. It opened up into a wonderful office...it had a plastic phone, note pads, crayons, sticker rolls, a changeable calendar, and maybe a pencil sharpener. Everything had its own spot, it wasn't all thrown in there. I cannot find one anywhere, not even through Google or ebay. I am beginning to think I am the only one who had one!! :)

Trying to figure out what the name of a toy a friend of mine had growing up. It was a black triangle shaped plane (maybe 10-12" wide) with purple accents and had two smaller black triangle fighter planes that attached to it magnetically. Also when you pressed a button on the big plane it popped up and had a wheeled vehicle come out of the bottom. Haven't been able to find anything out about it.

I am trying to find a toy, I think they were called "keepers" or something like that. They were basically animals of different types, the 2 I can remember are a penguin (with a top hat!) and a snail. You could open up the side of the animal with a special key. Does anybody remember these and what they were called? Thanks.

Can anyone help? It was a plastic robot shaped toy with 3 or 4 red feet, you would push the foot to answer the picture question and if you were wrong it would say you're wrong try again. It was definately not the alphie robot, it was far more simple. I think it had cards like the alphie robot but I could be wrong. It was a rounded sort of robot and I'd just love to see if anyone else had him. I was in South Africa during the 80's so it is probably american made or made in Taiwan.

I've spent countless hours trying to determine the name of a specific toy I had when I was a child (mid to late 80s) to no avail, hence this post. The toy I had was similar in concept to the Rubik's Snake. Unlike the Rubik's Snake, however, this toy's components did not lock into place, but rather just loosely folded into place—sort of like origami, except these were large plastic pieces with flexible joints (possibly connected via flexible plastic). The pieces were bigger than those of the Rubik's Snake. The hard plastic was black, but unlike the Rubik's Snake, the coloring (perhaps with stickers, as with the Rubik's toys) was not two-tone; it featured a variety of colors (red, purple, blue, etc). The toy came with a full-color glossy manual, if I recall correctly, which pictured many of the various shapes you can make, including a chair, which is the only one I recall. Each individual piece, I believe, was triangular.

Marissa, were the animals dogs or cats or rabbits? Because if so, you might be looking for My Little Puppy, My Little Kitty, and My Little Bunny. They were sets of animal families related to My Little Pony. Each set had a mommy with flocking on her and two rubber babies in different colors, and each kind of animal had four different sets available. Someone else had asked a similar question, and when I told her about these it turned out to be the right toy. There are some decent pictures a site called My Little Pony Collector, if you want to make sure. Hope that helps!

He was in a permanent sitting position was all one piece with a tail 2 arms and 2 legs. On the bottom of his tail he had a blue suction cup and 1 suction cup at the end or each arm and foot.He was about 4-5 inches from the bottom of his bum to the top of his head. He was made of a soft squeezable rubber material. He was wearing a white hooded bath robe and came with a yellow animal or alien friend.

I am looking for the name of a toy that wasn't mine, but belonged to my best friend. It's a bit difficult to describe - it was essentially an irregular flat shape made of thick cloth or thin foam, with snaps in various places. To play with it, you would attach some of the snaps to form a 3D shape, like a seahorse or a bear. (I remember it being blue, it may have come in multiple colors.) It probably came with instructions for forming the different animal shapes, but part of the gimmick was that you could come up with your own shapes. They were advertised heavily on TV, as I recall. Does anyone know what this toy was called? Thanks!

The other army was of tan / light brown soldiers (I called them Greeks, but since I was 6 at the time I might have been making that up) in a simple standing position. They had larger, squarish shields and they were casually holding swords in the other hands. Can anybody tell me what these were from / post a link to pics?

Hi, i have been collecting toys/books from when i was a child but their are a couple of baby dolls i'm not sure on. The first one was what i can only remember as possibly being called "BABY HUSH A BYE" this was a doll that had a soft body with what i think were vinyl or soft plastic limbs, blonde straight short hair, open close eyes, and she would cry out real loud until you cuddled/rocked her. I don't remember if she had a dummy or not, their were lots of ads on UK tv about her. The second are a set of twins, boy and girl, they had short hair, the girl had very blonde hair while the boy had a darker blonde hair, the girl had a pink cotton romper type suit on, the boy had a matching blue one and i think there was a faint white print design on the suits. Both soft bodies, vinyl/soft plastic limbs, open close eyes, and a pink/blue dummy each. They would cry when apart but when put together they would giggle, you could also put their dummys in to quieten/sooth them. The twins i don't remember seeing on tv but they were in the argos catolouge ! All dolls had to be 80s, or 1990/91. There is also one other toy i actually would like to mention, and thats a soft toy puppy with brown scruffy hair who cried/whimpered when you pressed its darker brown nose, I remember it coming from woolworths but can't remember its name either ...

The 8 gray figures in the photo the last one of which is orange, they are Battle Beasts but their colors are wrong, as in they're all gray and it looks like someone primered them with paint. They might be knock-offs of Battle Beasts. The 4 weird robots the fourth of which is a black ball, I have him in a drawer. The tree creature is an Inhumanoid, Ebay says his name is Redlen, he's a transforming tree creature.

I'm getting really frustrated trying to find info on an old 80s bath toy I had as a kid. It was a Lumberjack and his beaver pal. They came with a sponge shaped like a log that had round holes they could fit into like a boat. I recall there being other combinations of dudes and animals in the series but that's about it. Pretty sure the beaver squirted water out of his mouth.

I am looking for a building set that I had in the 80's as a kid. I thought they were called Tinker Toys but they look nothing like the ones I see online now. They came in a big set w/ a variety of different colors. They were round w/ four legs & post on the top so that you could put them together & make a big design. They were made of plastic. I played w/ these for hours & think my kids would love them. Please help....Thanks

Hiya, i wonder if you can help, i remember owning a toy but i can't remember the name. It was from the later part of the 1980's. It was a space cowboy, but defo not either a galaxy ranger or bravestarr. It had a cowboy hat that was moulded to his head, that you could not remove, he had a white face but a brown or black body and arms and legs. But the lower part of his leg below the knee, which was a high boot could be removed. If i recall so could his arms, that removed below the elbow. He had a futuristic gun and body armour not to disimilar to the type warn by the early Heman figures, that could be removed. He was about the size of a centurion...if that helps. I've looked all over the web, just for a pic, ur my last hope, any info would be great. Cheers matt

Trying to find the name of these toys. They were cars, about 8 inches long. They came with a plastic key that you would put into the back of the car and turning the key would make the vehicle transform. I know one was a police car and when you turned the key, the doors dropped down (kinda the opposite of gull wing). Another one was a black limo or sedan and the front grill had a cannon come out when the key was turned to transform it. I could be wrong about a few things when I'm remembering them: may have been early 90s but I've searched and can't find anything like it. I don't believe they were a part of a major toy line (ie transformers) but were there own individual line. I also don't remember there being any characters or figures, just the vehicles themselves. Hope the description helps. Thanks!

It was white with black patches at the eyes and on its back, had horns, and a red ribbon around the neck, the ribbon was tied into a bow on the one side. It stands upright on all fours. It sold for about 5 dollars.

Hey everybody...I'm on the lookout for this series of foam-based figures that I believe were released in the late-80s. The only one that I owned/crrently remember} was a deranged dentist character. Their feature was that you could alter their size and shape when you squeezed them, then they returned to normal. I know that LJN made one of Freddy Krueger from the Nightmare on Elm Street films{and LJN referred to him as a "Squish 'Em"}, but am unsure if the regualr line also had that name{or if LJN even was the company who produced it}. perhaps the Freddy one was a deriative of the competing series? Any and all information from anyone would be beyond appreciated, I'd love to find out more about this elusive set!

"I'm trying to figure out what type of doll/toy this is. It used to have a voice box in the back, and there is a patch on it's hand but I'm not sure what used to be there" (Sixth Image of the Dog) That's Tippy the Puppy! I've had one since I was probably four. You put a nine volt battery in his back and press the paw with the patch. There's a button there. You could then talk to him. Once the little red light on his chest goes out, the recording was over and you could press the button again to play it back as many times as you liked. I'm pretty sure that's his name. Mine had a little leather tag with it stamped in. (I can't seem to turn up any info online for him, but I'm pretty certain I didn't rename him.)

This, I believe, is a fairly odd one. The toy was a football like ball. Imagine a football with the ends cut off and a inverted cones in there place with a hole through the center. The ball was a soft squishy rubber. I don't believe it was ever widely sold. My mother found it at a store while on business. I played with this thing for years until one day I was working and we were tossing the ball back and forth over a roof top when one of us came up short. To this day, I believe it is probably still on that roof top. Has anyone ever seen one of these? It would have been around 1997 or 98 that I got it.

In late 1989, I had a 'futuristic'/ sci-fi-themed vehicle that I cannot find any information on. The gimmick was that a 1"-2" long power-cell had to be "charged" by a light source. After charging, it could then be inserted into the vehicle, which would begin to move forward, motorized, for about a minute or so. The vehicle I had was about 6"Lx3"Wx3"H and was among the smallest in the set of about 8 or so. They were a strange pearlescent off-white color, and featured no "drivers" or cartoon tie-in support. They basically did not work well, so were quickly forgotten. In recent years, I have been curious as to what happened to the toy series, and have not been able to unearth anything about it.

This is a better description of my first post. 12"-24" rubbery green monsterman with a orange belt. He was filled with like a foam and his belt was hard plastic. The gimmick was that if you unscrewed the thing on the back of the belt, you could squeeze him and flaten him. If you rescrewed the back part in, he stayed squeezed. If you opened it up and left it that way, he regained his original form. They show him in the opening scene of the movie Creepshow. Does anyone know what it's called.

It was a toy from the mid-80s...two of them. They stood around 12" one was gray with retractable arms. When you pushed a button on his waist his arms crashed together. The other was black with a retractable maroon tail. He had a button on his waist when pushed, his tail would whip forward. They were both monsterish-looking and I used them to fight my voltron (though not related) Do they sound familiar?

Hello, my sister and I remember an 80's toy that was called "The Bead Machine" or something like that. It was about the size of a notebook, it stood upright, had clear plastic with colored plastic gears that you turned with a crank. You dropped little round beads in a hole at the top and watched them go through the gears as you turned the crank, and at the bottom a plastic bead necklace came out on a string! It was pretty awesome and we can't find anything about it online. I think the frame of the thing was blue. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Well, this will probably sound really dumb, but it's worth a try. I had a favorite stuffed dog, lost it, and later saw 2 identical ones at friends' homes, so I know there are more! It was just a stuffed animal, a solid brown dog. It's floppy ears hung down, about 2 inches, but were a darker brown. It was made of almost a ratty lambskin material. It was in a sitting position with its arms sticking straight out. From head to bottom, I would guess it was between 8 and 11 inches. I think it had visible seams on it, but that might be my imagination. Anyway, it looked sort of old and like no one would care about it. It had droopy eyebrows/lids that sort of hid its brown plastic eyes, and it had a hard plastic button nose that was not exactly sewn in the center of its muzzle (as I recall, one side of its face was slightly rounder or larger than the other side). It had a very short tail, about two inches long. It looked like it should be in the all-fours position, but if you sat it this way, its face was pressed into the ground, so it was definitely meant to sit. It didn't do anything, but I loved it. I named it Barfy because it was sort of ugly, but he was my favorite. Thanks for trying. lol

Hey Mil, Creepshow{and anything else done by either George A. Romero and/or Stephen King} is one of my favorite films! I thought that you might have been thinking about the green version of this guy{http://cgi.ebay.com/Monster-Black-kenner-Fisher-Stretch-Hulk-Armstrong-/280612909098?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4155d5302a}, but a YouTube search for Creepshow's first scene proves me wrong. I used to have a bunch of the 90s-era Stretch Armstrong characters{Vac-Man/Vac-Pac, too}, and the one you're looking for seems to be from the 1970's versions of the characters{I think}. I'm sorry that I can't be of any further help to you, but best of luck in your continued search! I'm also having a difficult time finding a similar series of figures, which can also have their shapes altered by the owners. I originally posted here back in late November of 2010, and have yet to discover any additional info about what I'm looking for. For those that missed it, I'm trying to find a set of 8-inch figures/dolls{think of how a Nerf ball feels, they're made from that same type of material that you could squish and grab as you held them. As you stopped pressing down on them/let 'em go, these guys would return to their original state. I used to own the Dentist character{who wore large, purple and yellow shoes, rotted teeth, and had orange, Bozo-like hair}, and seem to recall their being others{such as an army sargeant and a football player,if I'm remembering correctly}. I know that LJN released one of Nightmare on Elm Street's Freddy Krueger, but don't know if he was/is part of this same series or not. There is another LJN product similar to this, but taller and not squishy{http://cgi.ebay.com/Freddy-Krueger-Nightmare-Elm-Street-Figure-NOS-/360255119023?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item53e0e0deaf}. The one I'm referring to is shorter, and is known as the "Freddy Squish "Em{http://x-entertainment.com/updates/2009/10/05/kind-and-gentle-freddy-krueger-toys/}. Again, the big mystery here{and why I haven't been able to find out more about these guys} is whether or not all of them were called "Squish 'Ems", or if they were sold under a different name/by another company.

Has anyone ever seen or heard of a card matching "memory"game called,"Twinny"? It had colorful hand-painted images that you matched together when they were spread out face-down. The backs of the cards are gold and say, "Twinny" all the way around and the pictures are really cool. I still have some of them, and one shows a bust of a man's head and shoulders, the name underneath says, "INSAM" and I googled it and found an old artist from another country. Some very bright and vivid paintings were on a website for him, but no mention of Twinny. Other cards had images like a white cat on a red background, a blue background w/ a gold phone, a boy kicking a ball, a unicorn's head w/ a gold background and some other beautiful images for a total of about 20 cards all together. I think that it came from a "head shop" where my mother worked in the 80's. The pictures are so amazing and I still have about 9 of them but I would love to have them all or at least see something about Twinny somewhere! Thanks!

There's a toy I am looking for but can't remember what it's called. Either it was in the 70's or 80's but I don't remember which but here it goes. I believe it was called fat track or something similar. It was a kind of wide toy that sort of looked like the car that the banana splits tv characters was in. It had I believe 3 big wheels on the left and 3 on the right. On the top of this thing towards the back there was a keypad where you could enter numbers from it and then by entering those numbers you could control it's movement.

In regards to Tim Foster's post about the mystery "fat track". I believe you're talking about a BIG TRAK. (http://www.thebigtrak.com/) I was lucky enough to have gotten one for Christmas...they're very hard to come by now.

Hi there. I'm looking for the name of an action figure series from the late 80's. I think I owned 2 of them. They had hard black plastic torso's. The upper half of the arms and the upper half of the legs were made of the same black plastic. The lower half of the arms and legs were made from a rubbery plastic. Each figure had a unique helmet that spanned from shoulder to shoulder. You could also detach and interchange the rubbery halves of the arms and legs. The were about He-man sized and the heads were also rubbery.

I am hoping that someone might be familiar with the name of a barbie-like/size doll from the early 80's that you could design your own clothes for by using the grooves/slits that ran down her arms and legs to poke fabic in using a tool that she came with. I know it sounds weird, but I had one. If you liked "Fashion Plates" or "Flip and Fold Fashions" then you would have LOVED her.

Hello, I hope someone can help me. I'm not sure if I asked on here before, so if I did I apologize. In the 80s I used to buy these little tiny dolls with long string (yarn-type) hair and they came inside a spoon which was covered in clear plastic, so it sort of looked like an egg before you opened it. It's possible they were just generic little toys you could get at the grocery store, but I'm not sure. I'd love to find out their name at least, if they had one. Thanks!

I am trying to find the name of a toy I had from the 80's. It is a marble maze type thing, except there are a several different sections of the maze. The first (i think) was making the marble "jump" onto the next section. I forget the order, but there is a teeter-totter type thing with 3 segments of the teeter-totter, there is also a sloped section where you have to get the marble to roll down the ramp to the left, then down the ramp to the right until it gets all of the way down to the next section. Any of this sounding familiar, I think that tv show "wipe out" has a version of this that their contestants had to run around on. Any way, I would love to know the name of it.

Hi there! I'm new here... I just came across this site when I was looking for some toys I had when I was a kid back in the very late 80s/ early 90s... I've looked everywhere but I haven't been able to get anything so far... If only I remembered the name of the toys... Maybe any of you can help me out and tell me the name of the toys/ figures Im talking about. They were like hard plastic domes... Inside the dome there was a figure, well just a head/bust actually... On the botton there was a button and when you pushed it, some liquid came out of the head (there were some colors: red, yellow, green, etc) I remember the characters were similar to the Garbage Pail Kids, I mean, it was not GPK but they were gross, one of them was throwing up, other had a swollen eye, other was spitting, another would shoot the liquid out of his nose. Each one of them would shoot the color water out a different part of their face: eye, mouth, ear, etc... I remember the name of one of the characters was "Igor". Does anyone know what series of toys I'm talking about? Please help!

Does anyone know the name of this math toy? It was like a small red computer with a carrying handle; on the screen it had a racing track and on either side of the screen there was a track runner, a male on one side and a female on the other. To play it, you had to answer the math problems it asked you correctly to make your runner advance. If you got enough problems right and did it quickly enough, you'd win the race. I loved that toy and took it everywhere with me, but my mom thinks she might have gotten rid of it. I'd really appreciate it if anyone knows what it was called and possibly who made it.

The dolls that you clicked clothing on were called Dolly Pops.. they also had a "fashion stage" they could click in and a crank you turned to show them around the stage. Golden Girls and the Guardians of the Gemstones were the predecessor to she-ra.. they looked similar to the He-man and Sh-Ra line. I still have Shadow.. the black horse. Thank you soooo much! I have been looking for that toy's name for years! The "compact" toys might be Sweet Secrets... they flipped open and you flipped out their head, hands, feet and clicked it closed, They had a jewel/ jem on the front of them, and could be worn like jewelry. The dolls like Barbie might be Jem? Jem and the Holigrams... and their ememies The Misfits. Though they were a little bigger than Barbie. The rub on transfers i remember... the company logo i remember was Panini or something similar to that. It was a knight on a horse with a lance with the name under it. It was a 2 page scene and you could rub on the transfers to create a scene. I loved those! But they were not colorforms. Susan... the flat scooter you wiggled back and forth were called Roller Racers.... there's a newer one out now called EZ Rollers... but it's based or wiggling the front back and forth to move. The small music players were called Pocket Rockers... i remember the 80's commercial cuz they used a popular song and switched the lyrices... "down on the corner/ out in the street/ pocket rockers are playing/ hear the music/ feel the beat."

I had these action figures when I was a kid. They were about 2 inches tall maybe. Each one came with a military medal looking thing that the figures fit inside of. I think the medal could clip to your shirt pocket. I've been driving myself crazy trying to remember what they were called. Can anyone help???

My brother had a race track when we were kids late 70's early 80's. It had two tracks. In order to get the little cars onto the track, you had to crank a little plastic crank that drove a rubber conveyor belt that the cars would climb. One car was red, one was blue. I believe they may have had "STP" on them. Does anyone know the name?

I have been trying to find out about this teddy bear for the last 10 yrs. So I'd appreciate your help. On the tag it says: ANIMALS-LOS Below that is: 1983 ANIMALS IMPORT INC. I don't know if that is a company or what. It is a purple bear of average size. It has pink paws & inside of the ears. Brown nose & eyes. On the front of the bear are three triangles that make a small fan. They are blue, yellow, & pink. And underneath that is the word "Bear" in simple cursive. It has two finger-width of fuschia hair. If it happens to be just a basic bear, that's fine with me. But I'm DYING to know. Thank you for your help.

My toy definitely pre-dates the '50z, maybe the '40z. It usually takes animal form, is segmented in fairly uniform increments, and strung together by some unusually strong,cord of relatively small diameter. I imagine the cord is threaded through several points of entry to allow some independence of motion for the toy. These cords were then probably inserted into the wooden base upon which the figure will eventually rest. The toy through the utility of the cord, maybe like muscle sinews, is somehow attached to a spring of unknown proportion or configuration. This spring was, in my experience, housed in the inner core of a two-piece, wooden casing that formed the aforementioned base. A two-piece base is necessary to allow the inner core to move, when pressure is applied to the bottom of the base. If force comes to bear squarely on center and the core pushed to the furthest, unforced point, I believe I recall that (let's say it is a giraffe) the giraffe's collapse with his or her legs crumpled up under her. His head, and torso limp on top of the casing. Push up on the bottom right side, and, depending how far you pushed,the giraffe might kneel to the right. Push on the far forward end, and that push might get a nod. The last one of these now rare to me "puppets" I had was a gift; that was in, around 1993. So many people wanted that critter! and most often, I would have given it up, with little convincing needed, but I "have" a few toys to which I am sentimentally because they were a joy to my father, and the shared experience brought us close in an uncomplicated, happy way. He/I love spinning tops, gyroscopes (Get this: I can hardly believe that my online dictionary could not recognize the word, "gyroscope" =>red squiggly lines),we spent a lot of time fascinated by the beautiful geometry of kaleidoscopes. Magnets! Like polarities would push my hands in opposing directions, the opposite for opposites. I enjoyed feeling the action of an invisible something that seemed not to exist apart from the introduction and proximity of of a couple of magnets. Then there was the slinky, finger puppets, also fuzzy strips of cloth that arched backward to follow my hand's stroke; I still see replicas of them around. Oh, yeah, the wooden cups with a wooden ball attached by a string; it was a simple game: Find just the right force and arc to use, so that the ball plops securely into the cup. One more! The so called "Chinese Handcuffs": Push one finger,usually the index, of each hand into each end of a woven, straw, mesh-work tube, approximately 6 inches long, I think. Young neophytes may struggle long for release with little success. The toy was sometimes damaged in the process. The tube is pretty hardy; and the weave pattern lends it a lot of stretchy flexibility. However, frustration can run pretty high; it would have to be so to totally destroy the thing. Speaks volumes as to the character of the "Initiate" holding the secret key to freedom. I'll choke off that tangent. I REALLY, REALLY want "my" giraffe. However, I am not by any stretch of the...wealthy. I am counting on a high degree of convergence of circumstance and grace to bring it me the toy. My children are rooting for me too. In Hope and In Faith-Here I go-To Launch a search that has the greatest chances of success than any prior endeavor....TY for all who read this ponderous history.Please hold a good thought.Glad I found this site, and so many interesting people with captivating stories, interests, queries...

Hi All, Looking for a toy that I had back in the early 80s. It was a plastic pretend paint set. There were three double-sided pictures and I remember one being a flower and one being a car. They started out looking faded and when you "painted" them with water, they'd become vibrant. The borders around the pictures were red, yellow, or blue plastic. The holder was white and on the left side were three "paint pots," which were also red, yellow, and blue. You'd pour water into them. There was a brush and it had a holder on the right. I think the brush was orange, but I don't remember. I've been looking everywhere and I know my description sounds a little wiggy, but I can't think of how else to describe it without actually drawing out a picture (which I may do anyway). This was my favorite toy and it's gone missing, so if anyone has any info as to the manufacturer or the name of it, please reply. Thanks!

There are a couple of old animated TV movies from the 80s that I wish to find, but I only remember them vaguely as my VHS tape of them was lost in my parent's divorce... I desperately want to find the names for these at least, if not somehow find a copy somewhere for my two kids. 1. A movie which had the opening song "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," with characters that had flower-like? hats and rode on bug friends (possibly a caterpillar or snail) and they didn't get along with one of their former friends. There was a young one, and these characters were tiny and lived in plant homes including sliding down leaves and such. *Does not appear to be one of the two Rose-Petal movies.* 2. A movie about a bear father and his son in the bayou. The dad drove a fan boat, the son got into mischief but was a good kid, and the main antagonists are a pair of mother and son(?) gators.

In the mid to late 1970's, I bought a sound activated ball at a local furniture store. (The store has long since closed.)The ball was a milky white plastic with green and red 40 watt light bulbs in it. The two bulbs would flash or hold steady based on the sound. The white ball would reflect the green or red. I bought it around Christmas and it became part of my younger brothers and sisters Christmas tradition. They called it the "talking ball" because the woman who sold it to me said the colors would change when you talk near it. Needless to say the kids were amused by it and spent many Christmas Seasons trying to "out-wit" the ball. The ball ended up with one of the brothers' whose wife didn't appreciate the significance of the ball or that it was made of plastic. My brother found it at the bottom of a closet in many pieces. It couldn't be salvaged. I'm trying to find out the actual name of the ball and to locate one.

I had this board game that came with a stack of little plastic babies and a set of capes. You kept the babies in a milk bottle and the bottle was also part of the games like one where you have to shoot the babies up into the bottle onto a cardboard thing. The original packaging was pink but i do not know the name. Other games in it included tic tac toe the game boards were plastic and it came with a few boards most of which had games on both sides

I am looking for a board game my sister and I were given as a gift by an aunt in the mid-80s. It was a junk food-based board game (NOT Candyland!). I cannot remember what the point of it was anymore, but I do remember it having pictures of hot dogs, hamburgers, fries, etc. all over the gameboard. It was a standard gameboard, no 3-dimensional or battery-operated parts. My sister and I loved it and played it all the time! Any ideas?

I was given a transformer like toy set in the late 1970's early 1980's. It was a space set from memory the main part was a plastic bubble that would come apart so you could sit a spaceman of sorts in it and reassemble the sphere with a black traction rubber band thing to seal it ,You could then place a AA battery operated thing on it and it would either drive on the ground or run in water . I have no idea what it was I know it was not 'Transformers' it predated this the figures were smallish the playset was interchangable and you could buy other sets to add to it . Any help in naming this toy or pointing me in the direction of pictures would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I'm looking for a game that my boyfriend told me he used to play when he was younger. (He's currently 21, for timeline purposes.) He said it was a cube shaped thing that had knobs, and you had to turn to the color and/or number that it told you before you ran out of time and it yelled at you. Any ideas what this might be??

This, I believe, is a fairly odd one. The toy was a football like ball. Imagine a football with the ends cut off and a inverted cones in there place with a hole through the center. The ball was a soft squishy rubber. I don't believe it was ever widely sold. My mother found it at a store while on business. I played with this thing for years until one day I was working and we were tossing the ball back and forth over a roof top when one of us came up short. To this day, I believe it is probably still on that roof top. Has anyone ever seen one of these? It would have been around 1997 or 98 that I got it. ChrisC I have been looking EVERYWHERE for this. I bought one and gave it away, late 80's-90's? It came from either Brookstone or Sharper Image- searched every possible combination of "toy hollow blue football" + each site and alone- nothing until I saw your post from last year. ANYONE??? Thank you!

Been looking for this forever since my sister threw it out. It was a learning tool from probably the 70s. Consisted of a tray, semicircle in shape, that you opened one side and would put a circular paper that had word exercises or different school subjects trivia on it. You would load one of these sheets of paper than take a smaller, round, blank piece of paper and overlay the first, then close the tray. There was a slot in the tray that you could see the questions or word exercise, then a smaller slot where you could write an answer on the blank piece of paper. The tray had a lever you would pull down after writing an answer which would rotate both pieces of paper inside the tray. If anyone knows what this is after reading this crazy description I would be extremely grateful if you shared it with me:)

In the 1990's, Sear's used to publish large Christmas catalogs with everything on sale that season. I anticipated it every year as a child. One year there was a small racecar set that was no larger than a board game, with plastic cars that were a little bit bigger than the size of a quarter. The track was enclosed in a clear plastic "tube" and was powered by air. When you turned the air pump on, the cars would shoot through the (small) tubes and you could direct where they went, etc. It wasn't very big, and actually broke on Christmas day. I only got to play with it for a few minutes, but I had longed for it forever and now remember it as the greatest lost toy ever. Any help?

I am looking for a toy, probably 80's item. It was a very small basketball court, with a see-through plastic/elastic cover. 2 opponents, each could press a button, and little kickers where activated, which kicked the basketaball for a score. There where a lot of holes for the balls, and each hole, had 2 kickers I think, so both players could try and "kick" the ball... I also think this game was available for soccer, but not 100% sure.

I am looking for a very strange toy. It may have been a Dino Riders knock off. It was a green toy, I think it was a triceratops, but it had carrots on the side of it. There was a pilot that could ride in it, it was a mint green rabbit. This was a plastic "boys toy". I think that it had pull back action so that if you pulled it back it would race on a wood floor. The carrots on the side of the dino may have had firing action. I really liked this toy and can't find any info on it! Feel free to email me GalFriay.Kate at Gmail.com

I don't know if anyone remember this, but there was this toy plane that was called the Jumbo Jet, It would make noise when It was about to take off. And when it was about to land, the front wheels would come down when the plane was landing, then the front doors would open to show stairs where the passengers would be able to walk down those stairs and show a flight attendent at the door. IF someone can remember that would be nice. one of my favorite toys.

Ok, I remember having this thing when I was really little in the late '80s. It was more or less an interactive tape recorder. It was a big, white plastic box almost with the tape player on the left side, a place to place the book, and four large buttons on the bottom that were red, blue, green, and yellow. You had to buy the book/tape seperately (I had Muppets, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Fraggle Rock, and one where Goofy talked about sports), and you looked at the book as the tape played and you could change the story/songs/sounds/etc. by pushing a different button. I loved that thing to death, but can't remember what it was called for the life of me.

I'm looking for a toy gun, from the 80s, that shot yellow rubber bullets. It was black and came with two magazines. The toy had two grips, one where the normal gun grip was and one in the front to stabilize the barrel. In order to shoot a rubber bullet, you had to depress both triggers and pump the gun. It was kind of awkward but very fun. I can't remember the brand name, just that I purchased it at Big Lots.

Trying to ID a toy I saw in department store in about 1986 (I was 4). It was like a moulded plastic mill, atop a mountain, surrounded by a pond with tiny plastic silver fish in it and plastic trees I think. If you wound a handle, a conveyor belt would take the fish from the pond, up a ramp, into a water mill, and they would go through the building and then back into the pond out the other side. I know, it's the weirdest sounding toy ever, but I got to play with it on the display and it has bugged me ever since. No one I know has any recollection of such a toy. On another forum, someone suggested 'Mr Fishy Wishy's Marvellous Contraption' but I think they were kidding around; I can't find any information on that name! Haha.
