14 toys you totally forgot you had growing up in the 1960s
Chatty Cathy, Punch-Me's and Thingmakers were all the rage as kids.
Read to Me
We all remember playing with popular dolls like Barbie and G.I. Joe as kids growing up in the 1960s. But what about the toys that didn't make it past our generation?
These 14 toys gave us fun times and great memories, and it's about time they got some recognition. Do you remember having any of these?
1. Little Miss Echo
It's the doll you could teach how to talk. All you had to do was turn her bow to the left to record your voice, and turn it to the right to hear Little Miss Echo repeat it.
We were able to take out our aggression on Fred Flintstone, Batman and even Frosty the Snowman.
3. Johnny Speed Race Car
Never before or since was there a more stylish remote-control car.
4. Wacky Wind-Ups
Wind it up and watch it go! These toys moved around awkwardly, but they were a blast to play with.
5. Little Kiddles
Which one was your favorite?
6. Marx's Farm Set
If you lived in the city or suburbs, this was your only way to experience life on the farm.
7. Marx's Fort Apache Set
We couldn't wait to re-enact our favorite Westerns with this classic set.
8. Marx's Operation Moon Base
Before the moon landing, this was how the first man landed on the moon — in our imagination.
9. Go-Go the Burro
According to this ad, he was your "walking amigo." Check out his friend Mobo Bronco in the background.
10. Thingmaker Toys
Did you have a better time making "fun flowers" or "creepy crawlers"?
11. Sears Typewriter
Kids today have their very own iPads, but back in the '60s we had our very own typewriters!
12. Pinball Machines
This thing was pretty light, which meant it was easy to tilt the game in our favor.
13. Hoppity Hops
These things were the best, until they slowly deflated, or worse, popped.
14. Chatty Cathy
Even The Brady Bunch's Marcia was a fan of Chatty Cathy as a kid. The talking doll came with 11 prerecorded sayings at first.
