Sorry, Millennials, only Boomers can identify these Sixties toys from their shapes alone

Do you recognize any of these silhouettes from childhood?

Toys may be more sophisticated and complex now than they were in the Sixties, but sometimes simpler is better. Why have to worry about batteries when you could make it work every time with a quick windup?

It was also a time before strict safety requirements were put in place. There were dangerous products for kids that reached insanely hot temperatures, contained toxic chemicals and even had sharp metal spikes.

But the same inventive spirit that birthed a few less-than-safe gadgets also created many far out and endlessly entertaining toys that only Boomers remember.

Can you name all these Sixties toys just by their unique shapes?

  1. Can you tell what this toy shape is from?
  2. Which doll is this?
  3. Can you tell what this toy is?
  4. Can you guess this toy from its silhouette?
  5. What is this dangerous toy?
  6. Do you remember this robotic toy?
  7. This shape doesn't give much away. What is it?
  8. What board game is this figure from?
  9. Can you tell what this is?
  10. This shape was part of which set of toys?

Sorry, Millennials, only Boomers can identify these Sixties toys from their shapes alone

''You got 8 out of 10'' ----------You get a big thumbs up! Great job! ---I missed 8 and 10, because I never had or of Mr. Machine, and there were no pictures for #s 9 & 10. ---But I got #9 correct even without a picture because I guessed right. And I never heard of any of the choices for #10.

I or my youngest sister had Barrel of Monkeys when we were young, and my sister had the Easy Bake oven, which I used sometimes.

7/10. I was a little kid in the 60s, but some of those toys I'd never heard of.

You got 7 out of 10.
Didn't do as well as I thought I would.
Oh well...if they had Etch-a-Sketch, Mattel Thingmaker or Super Spirograph, I might have done better!

I know one Millenial who knew a lot of sixties toys.

But that's because I gave her mine. Definitely my Hot Wheels collection, a satellite launcher from Major Matt Mason (it was a fun toy in itself), at least one Wizzer, Spirograph, some games including Milles Borne. Maybe Barrel of Monkeys. She had a Mr. Potato Head. Some trolls.

Well, yes despite getting 8/10, I didn't play with any of these toys!! I remember using an Etch-A-Sketch. Then there was the game of Clue, Sorry, and of course, Monopoly.

Between family and friends we played with all of them.
I don't remember lite-brite looking like that. Kids would come from other neighborhoods to play rockem sockem robots. Best toy ever.

This was dumb. We had so many of these toys in the 70s 80s and 90s as well. Only Millennials can identify Boomers by their obese body shape.

Oh wait, let me modify my answer to say actually we did not have lawn darts in our era because we quickly learn from your era's stupid mistake that maimed and injured and blinded children lol.
We don't need mean, belligerent, insulting people on here.
As Bugs would say, "What a Maroon!"

These toys are familiar to people who are in their late 60s or early 70s.
