Who remembers that gummy thing: Nickelodeon Gak Splat by Mattel ? I remember making fart noises with it, stretch it, throwing it on my toys…what a weird “toy” to play with ! Here is what the makers said about it : “Gak is thick and will stretch and break like Silly Putty, but it will flow and is cold to the touch like Slime. The Gak can be twisted and squeezed and different colors can be mixed. Gak is stored in an amoeba shaped plastic container called a “Splat” and will make rude noises when stuffed in the Splat.”

Or the best way to crack kid skulls in the 80s.. also known as Springbal, Lolobal and Disc-O. It was a hit in the middle of 80s when it started to be mass produced by Hasbro.
It’s a saturn shaped toy and to play with it, you have to stand (at least try to) on the plastic form and keep the rubber ball betwwen your legs and jump… then fall
Pogo ball commercial from 1985 :
If you’re born these last 20 years, you had a Furby or you wanted to have one.
The commercial was amazing, it’ almost s a living animal ! it reminded me Gizmo from the Gremlins… It was a fluffy electronic robot, some sort of creature born from the love of an Ewok and an owl. It was kind of cute until it starts to talk… it was talking all day long ! couldn’t stop it and you had to learn their language so hard to know at the beginning if it was hungry, bored or just in an annoying mood. The solution ? you lock it in the closet and pick it up the next morning… or not
Furbies could talk together and they seemed to understand each others… I guess it’s a good thing they’re not sold anymore they probably would have take control of the world by now.
The furbies were the must-have toys in 1998.
Here’s a furbies conversation : (certainly preparing a riot or something…)
Thanks to Evelien for the memory
This toy was a MUST have during summers in the 90s. The Super Soaker is the greatest water gun to date! Invented by Lonnie Johnson, this gun can shoot water at far ranges with great power. Need to cool off on a hot day during summer break? Grab your friends, pick up your Super Soakers and experience the ultimate water fight!
I had my first ghetto blaster around the christmas tree in 1985. I’m pretty sure I still have it somewhere in my house… and i’m sure it still works
