    The ‘yellowed’ handpiece of the rotary phone is evidence it was actually used ‘back-in-the-day’. You weren’t cool unless you woke-up to a clock-radio alarm in the 70s. ‘Jacks’ and that simple Viewmaster goes back to the late 60s. The Fisher-Price stuff became more interesting once it was teamed with automotive, space and railroad playsets. Silly Putty and Blasting Caps will outlive ANYTHING created in the 21st century. Wacky Packages ruled, and it was sought after even when it first came out. The ‘Chu-Bops’ were a ‘silent’ best-seller with a very limited production time.

    IN THE 60S AND 70S those little water pistols could be bought at any store ,and marbels were always a great thing at school breaks.

    Those phones never dropped a call.

    I had that alarm clock though I don’t think it was a GE one. Looked exactly the same though. Also, I still have like 16 blank cassette tapes still in their wrappers from the 80’s.

    remember the mini football helmets the only way to get them all was to trade with your friends because you would get the same 5 or 6 teams and run out of money never got all the teams but i think i got 20 dallas cowboys(was a giants fan)

  11. Bill C on April 6, 2021 at 5:15 pm

    There was another thing about the phone. They were comfortable to hold. A modern smart phone is not.



  12. KyRo Practer on April 6, 2021 at 5:15 pm

    A guy at work used to throw Necco Wafers into the basket of the toll booth. One day the cops were waiting for him. They were not amused !



  19. Crooked Halo on April 6, 2021 at 5:21 pm

    Wonderful trip down memory lane. Thanks 😊



  22. redhairkid on April 6, 2021 at 5:23 pm

    I did not grow up in America so there was some stuff I am unfamiliar with. But I can relate to most of it.



  23. paul Stewart on April 6, 2021 at 5:23 pm

    I remember the wacky packages very well, my favorite was, instead of raisin bran it was ‘raisin brain’.



  24. MisterLumpkin on April 6, 2021 at 5:26 pm

    I had the Frito Bandito eraser when I was in 3rd or 4th grade. I remember I had a bad habit of gnawing on the top of his sombrero and one day during an especially hard pop quiz on fractions I bit the top off and accidentally swallowed it. I watched my poop for the next week hoping I would see that eraser again, but I never did. I hope it’s not still floating around my innards all these decades later.



  25. shawn Oneil on April 6, 2021 at 5:28 pm

    You forgot PEZ DISPENSERS !!!!



  26. TheBennie102103 on April 6, 2021 at 5:28 pm

  27. Where’s Waldo on April 6, 2021 at 5:31 pm

    Wow! That was great! So many memories.



  28. James Fox on April 6, 2021 at 5:33 pm

    Thanks for bringing back memories that I never had.



  29. hk43xx on April 6, 2021 at 5:35 pm

    So many fond memories come flooding back. I remember using Scotch tape to splice cassette tapes that would get caught in the tape player. I remember Saturday morning cartoons were such a big deal that they would have a Preview Special on the Friday night before the kickoff of the new season in September. I remember cashing in pop bottles for penny candy. Every store had a comic book rack, where the top rows were the new comics, the middle rows were the month old comics with the top half of the cover cut off, and the bottom rows had 2-3 older comics without covers, packaged together. I remember my Snoopy lunch box, and trading lunches at school. I always had a Dolly Madison cupcake, and other kids would trade their candy for it.

    Are you Canadian by any chance, cause I’ve never heard anyone else refer to flip flops as thongs. πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»



  31. Colleen Rue on April 6, 2021 at 5:37 pm

  32. brian janson on April 6, 2021 at 5:37 pm

    This was fun. Thanks. I have all the Freakies magnets. What about Aurora monster models, Colorfoms aliens, and all the games!



  33. McFlySwatter on April 6, 2021 at 5:38 pm

    Remember back when the word "sugar" was still in the name of so many cereals? Kellog’s Sugar Frosted Flakes, Sugar Smacks, Sugar Crisp, and so many more..



  34. Zooumberg on April 6, 2021 at 5:39 pm

    It’s quite amazing that 90% of the products were the same in the US and the UK. Needless to say, we didn’t have the sports memorabilia but had everything else. The grape ornament only rang a bell with the colour as it was the same as the Bambi glass ornaments we had, did you have them in the States? The cap bombs here in the UK were slightly different as they could use both the roll caps and the newer (back then) plastic cup caps. Thanks for uploading.

    Wacky Packs are quite valuable if they get graded high enough.



  46. Zeus Valentine on April 6, 2021 at 5:50 pm

    I got a lot of these but there is one thing you need in your collection. Do you remember the floater pens from the 70s? you would lean the pen one way and the womens clothes would come off….those were classic!



  47. Tammy Barnes on April 6, 2021 at 5:51 pm

    I used to watch moms digital clock change as I listened to the radio when I went to bed
