Since at least two folks (Lena and JKN) have found my post over in the other thread entertaining, here are few more toys that I had as a kid that I thought were pretty cool, or in the nomenclature of '60s, "neato" (I wish I still had most of these). BTW, here is an entire site devoted to Baby Boomer toys:http://www.timewarptoys.com/toptoys.htm
Here's the Hasbro Think-A-Tron (a legitimate punch card reader, actually, combined with a "quiz" game)
Next is a game called "Lie Detector"
I can't forget the "Give-A-Show" Slide Projector (we used to hang sheets on walls for screens)
The Remco "Fighting Lady" was such a cool toy boat. The missle on the stern fired as did the torpedoes.
Finally, the "Baracuda Sub"...didn't go in the water, but that see-through top was awesome.
I'd love to see others contribute to this thread...come on, don't be shy!
