How about lie detector? Where you had to figure out who did the crime by putting character cards in this little machine. The character cards would say on them... person had eyeglasses, or blond hair, bald, etc. and the machine would say true or false. And you figured out who did the crime by process of elimination.

Bit young for some of them, but I do remember 2 dolls I don't know if they do anymore - "Giggles", who did just that when you opened her arms, and "Tressy", with (a tad gruesomely) hair you could adjust in length by pulling it out of her head.

All of these were awesome, also the Hippity Hop, Water Rockets, Tonka Trucks, Silly Putty, glow in the dark Moon Rocks, Lego blocks, as well as Hotwheels and Matchbox cars and race tracks. And the Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle was awesome fun.
