Groovy!

A recent post by uber-blogger David Dust reminded me of the cool things we had in the 70's that are now obsolete!


Who was born after 1980 that can identify all of these items?












Who the hell does Queen Ginger think she's kidding? No one born after 1980 reads this blog!

Did she stump ANYONE?

Number one is a radio I think,, number seven is a slot car controller, and number eight is a set of click clacks!

Bucko: "spindle thingy" = #5?

Mr.Mischief said...

#5 is a typewriter daisywheel! I had a typewriter that had oen when I was a kid.

Miss Ginger Grant said...

#1 is actually not a "radio". Bonus points if you know what the handle on top was for!

Mr.Mischief said...

it's an eight track player-push the handle to change the song!

Miss Ginger Grant said...

Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! You got it!

David Dust said...

#8 (the gun thingy) stumped me - but I got the rest.

WTF is #8??

XOXOXOXO

Miss Ginger Grant said...

it's a controller for a slot car racing set. Plastic track with a slot down the middle- the car a little thingy that fit into the slot... you held the trigger down to send juice from the battery to the car to make it race down the track...

maybe a bit to butch for a gurl from Pensyltucky!

Dannelle said...

Ha ha- I thought #8 was a glue gun!!

I knew them all except for the slot car thing.

My click clacks were dark green. Still makes me laugh that a toy consisted of heavy glass balls that you swung through the air.

We were badass, I'm tellin' ya!

What a fun post!

The last one had a terrible racist name. Lol. But I would hurt someone with them.

CJ/Rick said...

The last ones were actually "clackers" and were recalled because they came flying off the string a couple of times and done serious damamge.
I was just thinking about my Spirograph the other day. How strange! Toys were so simple and cheap back then.
Interesting guessing game.

I hated those clackers. Kids would bring them to school and clack them in the hall. They weren't allowed in the classrooms. I hated that sound after a while!
