Creepy crawlers were fun to make. Twister, hot wheels. Lincoln logs and tinker toys. Cap guns. Spirograph. Light bright.

My older sister had Pong. It was the most amazing thing I'd ever seen! I couldn't wait to go over to her place (her very first own apartment no less!) to play.

I only heard about stretch Armstrong in the 90’s or early 00’s when they advertised it on Tv a lot, I never heard of it in the 70’s.

How about the original Jarts? Fun, but potentially dangerous. Maybe not a toy, but was a fun game for us kids in the 70s.
