     Something you could buy yourself, didn't cost much, which was good, 'cause they either got lost a lot, or they broke real easy.

     Here's mine....



     I must've bought hundreds of these gliders over the years; they flew well, did GREAT loops, but were prone to sometimes landing on roofs, trees, and tall bushes, or breaking upon impact with solid(er) objects.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

Oh man I remember those...I must have had a few million of those myself as a kid! How right you are too, they broke the minute they hit something.   Other hits were the original Slinky (which would be ruined the minute you bent them)  and the Super Elastic Bubble Plastic bubble maker.

Not a toy, but something I'm sure many of us enjoyed hundreds of times,, much to the dismay of our parents as the sugar kicked in a few minutes later. Introducing the one, the only.....

Or shoot them with a Daisy BB Gun, or light them on fire and watch them melt, he he he.

We used to melt them down and pour the plastic into Creepy Crawler molds and make hard plastic creatures!

I remember them.  Of course for me I preferred to hack their limbs off and talk about how they got an injury in the Battle of Back.  I think the mine detector guy was pretty mangled by the end of it.  Also, I remember getting an inordinate amount of the radio operators.   Not to say they weren't useful but in like 100 I think 10 is a bit much. 

For me, I always liked cheap cars and did destruction derbies with them.  Paint missing and chipped on all til all you could see was the base metal. 

For that matter, I did that with remote control cars and used to jump them over everything.  Destroyed the suspension on one little dune buggy (I know simple spring but it still didn't work right and eventually the axle broke again metal rod and plastic).

I had a Charlie McCarthy doll.
I set him on fire in the trash barrel out back so I could watch his face melt.
I  felt like Fu Manchu.

I played with dolls in 1970.

God, the hours I'd spend playing jacks as a kid.

Also recall looking for the cheap toy you'd get in these:

Nowadays ya aint gonna get a whistle or a cool Frankenstein flicker ring. No army soldiers or a plastic ape.
Youll get a tiny sticker-maybe a spit on tat.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
