And the Etch A Sketch, frick them knobby things are hard to figure out. These are the Top toys of the 1970s. ( Edited by Devin )

Atari 2600

Over 30 million Atari 2600's were sold in the 70's and 80's. For many of us, this was our first exposure to video games you could play at home without a roll of quarters.

What about MEXICAN JUMPING BEANS ?

Remember Mexican jumping beans? I remember them as a child in the 70's. Mexican jumping beans are hysterical! We used to play with them for endless hours. Our parents gave us kids a few boxes on a long road trip, and we were entertained the whole time!

It's funny how something like this takes you back, isn't it?

Wow, this list is 6 months old and I just discovered it? Silly Putty was one of the best. I spent many hours with my comic books and Silly Putty, making images from the comics.

Not too sure I remember Weebles? But the new Big Wheel video is pretty awesome! I want one again.

I think I had them all. Wow. I'm getting old. I loved the Big Wheel. If you built up enough speed on them plastic wheels, you could hit the e-brake and nail down a perfectly timed burnout. Yeah 1970's.

What do you think of creating an "homage to MakeFive" for your lite-brite mural project?

Posted 6 years ago

I actually have a litebrite still. Its one of the newer ones though. And i have a ton of the pegs, im going to try and make a huge wall mural out of them.
