Chatty Cathy, Thumbalina, the one where you squeeze the goo into molds and cook them while burning your fingers.

Not a toy, but I've been wracking my brain for years to remember what the stuff we used to put on ice cream was called so I could find it again. Stumbled across it yesterday online- PDQ. They don't make it any more. I kind of wish I didn't know that.

Moose said...

@Gator - that was the Creepy Crawlers I was talking about.

You poured the green goop into metal molds, and dropped it in the square oven like contraption, and they baked into a rubbery form that you could then assemble into bugs, monsters, ...

MountainMama said...

Chrissie and Velvet were so appealing to me back then. I wasn't a doll girl, lots of younger siblings so real life babies but those dolls with that hair that would get all wacked out in half a day were everything. Thanks for the memory @B626

Click clacks loves those balls, if you messed up your arms are hurting

Gator said...

@Moose... Yes, some of the goos were edible like Gummy Bears, and others were just rubbery bugs & spiders.

Guesser said...

I had the creepy crawlers because the store was out of incredible edibles. Image the lawsuits if these made a comeback!

LaurenMaye said...

YES! I had the creepy crawlers and flower maker. I had no idea there were so many different ones. One was creepy people. Don't think I'd want that one. See them online for 100.00 to 400.00.

Not a toy really, but I loved the Madeline cartoon and book series! Frances McDormand starred in the movie version. I'm not sure if it really still exists or not?

M said...

I actually had a lead soldier maker. Used real molten lead. Good times.

Not a big "toy" type of kid. Maybe a few board games. From age 8, I played tennis- that was my thing

I love this blind. We got to go to China Town in Chicago in Grade school and we all came back with the glass clackers that could kill a person if they went wrong. I touched on Chrisie and Velvet due to a poster and my word, Cecil and Beanie. The only cartoon I remember before that one was Felix the Cat. I bet if you had a Cecil in pristine condition it would be worth a mint.

LaurenMaye said...

@MM. I looked up the beanie boy a few years ago and was shocked to find out he was only worth maybe 25.00 and that was in good shape. :/

"Growing Up" Skipper! You rolled her right arm around and she grew little boobies! I loved that doll. I wish I kept mine.

Blue Haired Witch said...

Either Colorforms or Paint by Numbers. Yes, I am old!

More Cowbell said...

Dawn Dolls -- Perfect size for making a home for them in a bookshelf or tide pool. The Barbie Airplane -- so damn cool and had that Barbie Airplane plastic scent!
Does anyone remember the Sunshine Family dolls? They were smiling hippies who grew vegetables and stuff like that.

parissucksliterally said...

MoreCowbell, YES! I had them, my sister and I played with them all the time!

Lie Detector! Seems apropos for Cdan.

RobertaJoan said...

Irish Mail. Four wheels. Coolest thing ever. Steer with your feet. It moves with a lever that you push/pulled back and forth. They were based on the Irish Mails that ran on railroad tracks delivering, wait for it, the mail!
