Believe it or not, I can actually remember these toys from when I was little more than a baby in Woodhaven, Queens, circa 1976. I lived on … 89th Street? I’m not sure.
My best friend was Kelly Sullivan, who lived a few houses down. We both played on these.
Bizarrely, I don’t remember seeing these since I was a tot. But, out of the blue, I saw them on sale at the Vienna, Virginia, CVS, as I and a Mary Washington College almuna were preparing for a Labor Day barbecue at her house.
