    Electric Football was the sh*t! It never really worked like it was supposed to I guess, but it was still a lot of fun to turn that b*tch all the way up and watch the pieces fly all over the place.

    Play Doh is not a dumb toy.
    Nor is Silly Putty, Easy Bake Ovens, Barrel-a-Monkeys... in fact
    most of those are good toys.

    Pet Rock was stupid, though.

    Ok, Silly putty, Play-Doh, Koosh Balls, and high-bounce balls weren`t dumb toys.

    They were my childhood and they were great, until the play-doh turned all grey and filled with lint.

    That site keeps freezing my browser. Seems like an Illuminati conspiracy to me.

    Stretch Armstrong was stupid. All you could do was torture this poor guy.
    I had a ball doing that!

    I can`t understand why no-one has (to my knowledge at least) made a light switch with a delay on it. Have the normal switch so you can switch it off instantaneously still but also have a button that you press to switch the light off but that doesn`t actually do so until say 10 seconds later, ideal for getting into bed

    I wound up disemboweling Stretch to see what the hell he was made of. It was disappointing just some sort of clear gel.

    Firstly, silly putty isn`t dumb it gets kids interested in physics.

    Second, Pet Rock made me think of this and this.
