fOR THOSE OF YOU WHO AREN'T FAMILIAR WITH THIS GUY HIS NAME'S TEDDY RUXPIN.   WASN'T VERY FLUFFY THOUGH, SINCE HE WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TALKING TEDDY BEARS HE WAS HEAVY AND KINDA AWKWARD.  I LOVED HIM THOUGH.  LETS DIG A LIL DEEPER AND SEE WHAT WE CAN FIND SHALL WE?

nOW JUST LOOKING AT THIS TOY, I CAN REMEMBER WHY I WAS SO SCARED OF IT.  I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY MY MOTHER BOUGHT IT FOR ME, JUST LOOK AT ITS EYES.  I DID GROW TO LOVE IT AS I GREW OLDER THOUGH.

WHO REMEMBERS THIS LIL DOHICKEY RIGHT HERE?  IF YOU DO THEN YOU'RE PROBABLY MORE ADVANCED THAN THE REST OF YOUR PEERS.  THIS WAS ONE OF THE 1ST EDUCATIONAL TOYS I REMEMBER.  I CAN REMEMBER FINDING IT YEARS AFTER I RECEIVED IT, STILL FEELING LIKE IT WAS THE COOLEST THING EVER.

AND WHO CAN FORGET THIS ONE?  IF THIS DOESN'T RING A BELL THEN YOU MUST'VE NOT BEEN A KID.  THEY ACTUALLY MADE A MICHAEL JACKSON "THRILLER" FILM STRIP THAT WENT WITH IT, SCARED THE SHYTE OUT OF ME EVERYTIME, & EVERYTIME I WOULD GO BACK AND WATCH IT AGAIN!

NOW I KNOW THE 1ST THING YOU PROBABLY SAID WAS 'AWWW'.  THERE WASN'T A KID IN AMERICA WITHOUT AT LEAST ONE OF THESE LITTLE CRITTERS.  I CAN REMEMBER DOING ALL KINDS OF STRANGE THINGS WITH THEIR HAIR, &  I DON'T KNOW WHY BUT I CAN VIVIDLY REMEMBER THE SMELL AND TASTE OF THEM, I KNOW I WAS A WIERD LITTLE GUY.

NOW HERE'S THE 1ST TOY THAT I WANTED SO BAD, & WHEN I FINALLY GOT IT I WAS LIKE WHAT A 'JIP'.  IT DIDN'T STRETCH NEAR AS FAR AS IT DID IN THE COMMERCIAL, & WHEN I DID TAKE IT TO THE LIMITS THE SKIN BROKE AND EXPOSED ITS METAL INSIDES THAT WAS PRETTY DANGEROUS TO A KID.

THESE TWO TOYS WERE RELEASED IN THE NINETIES DAMN NEAR SIMULTANEOUSLY.  OF COURSE I NEVER GOT A POLLY POCKET, BUT THE 'MIGHTY MAX' TOY WAS ANOTHER ONE I WANTED, AND WAITED MONTHS FOR, & WHEN I FINALLY GOT IT, I PROBABLY PLAYED WITH IT FOR A WEEK.  TOYS SEEMED SO COOL ON TV, AND WHEN YOU GOT THEM THEY DIDN'T HAVE HALF THE FUNCTIONS THEY SEEMED TO HAVE ON TELEVISION.

THESE WERE PROBABLY MY FAVORITE HAPPY MEAL TOYS OF ALL TIME, AND THEY WERE SO SIMPLE I CAN'T REALLY TELL YOU WHY I WAS SO FOND OF THEM.  MAYBE BECAUSE I WAS SO YOUNG, OR MAYBE CAUSE THEY RESEMBLED FOOD, &, i WAS A CHUBBY KID, WHO KNOWS.

NOW BETWEEN ME & MY BROTHER WE HAD AT LEAST 10 OF THESE.  WE USED TO SLAP THE SHYTE OUT OF OUR WRISTS, FOR WHAT REASON, IDK, SOME TYPE OF CONTEST I GUESS.  I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW THESE THINGS PASSED REGULATIONS BEING THAT AFTER A LITTLE WEAR & TEAR THE OUTER COVER CAME OFF AND EXPOSED THE DANGEROUS PIECE OF METAL THAT MADE IT WORK THE WAY IT DID.

 

HERE'S SOME TOYS  I ALWAYS WANTED & NEVER GOT, SO I CAN'T REALLY TELL YOU ANYTHING ABOUT THEM, EXCEPT FOR THEY LOOKED DOPE AS FUGG
