Hell half the time these days I see toys from current-day and want them myself. The shit they come out with now a days is insane, it's fucking awesome. What I wouldn't give for a few of the new Thunder Cats toys or even one of them, have you seen them? They're goddamn amazing and they're just a bunch of action figures.
It's not just action figures either or dolls, remember when the average Remote Controlled Vehicle cost in excess of $100.00 USD? Yeah, I do.. You know what they cost now? Often maybe $20.00 USD, that is BULLSHIT. The kids today are able to take for granted what only the richy little punks had, that's gotta be some kind of cruel twist of fate laughing in our faces as we get too old to play with toys and such things. Goddamn sadistic ass reality.
Still we've had some great shit in the past, more recent past too.. That's what we're going to touch upon today in this article as we look back at Toys of the Past..ast.. ast.. ast... ast...
Timeblaster Alarm Clock:
Featuring a Radio, Light and several sounds including a spring bounce, the Nickelodeon theme, a rooster call and the cliche and average beeping, this Alarm Clock was the best and most awesome Alarm Clock to have back in the 90s and was truly unique in design and functionality.
Personally I wish I still had mine, I'd still be using it without a second thought.
It wasn't just Gak though, there was also Smud, a more 'Playdough' like version of Gak which featured a peculiar little mascot
Gooze, a clear oozy version.
Floam which was the strange micro-bead foamish version..
It wasn't just Gak, though. An earlier predecessor of Gak was released in the 80s by Nickelodeon and Fisher Price marketing for the Nickelodeon Show "You Can't Do That on Television", simply known as 'Green Slime' it was marketed and sold as a compound as well as later on as food and even a Shampoo and Toothpaste!zit I remember both of these and these were the coolest Shampoo's and Toothpaste I've ever seen. Who can deny the whimsy of being able to slime themselves with Shampoo and brush their teeth with slimy green goo?
So gross but so cool!
It's a shame this isn't around anymore. This commercial makes me really want some!
Cannot complain about this dish! No I cannot indeed.
