Hey there, friend! Do you remember those wacky and wild toys of the ’70s? Oh, man, they were a hoot! Let’s take a trip down memory lane together and relive the joys of our childhoods, shall we?
Ah, the Lazy Daisy Doll. She was the epitome of chill. As soon as you set her down, she’d pass out into a deep sleep – no batteries required! And who could forget the talking Redd Foxx plush from the hit show Sanford and Son? One pull of the string and he’d say, “Your daddy sat on me!” Oh, the laughter!
Now, let’s talk about Hugo, the Man of a Thousand Faces. That Kenner toy set was amazing, wasn’t it? With all the glue-on accessories, it was like playing a forensic sketch artist. You could create your own serial killer (or hero) in no time!
Remember those quirky Canned Beans Babies? They were like the little siblings of the Cabbage Patch Kids, except they were actually filled with beans! And wait to get me started on Milky the Marvelous Milking Cow. She drank water and then produced milk when you squeezed her rubber udders. Talk about a bizarre toy!
Skipper, Barbie’s spin-off, sparked some controversy when she suddenly hit puberty. The public wasn’t too keen on a growing and developing doll, so her torso got fixed when she returned to shelves in 1979.
And who can forget the Snoopy Snow Cone Machine? It was a staple in so many homes, but it had some competition with the Iceberg machine. Kids had to scrape a large block of ice to get those frozen shavings, but it was worth it!
The ’70s were a wild ride of weird and wonderful toys. So, my fellow nostalgia lover, check out the MadlyOdd video on YouTube for even more strange toys from our favorite decade. Give it a like and share it with your friends because the memories are too good not to spread the love.
