The SunShine Family

mattel sunshine family
I'm surprised I'm doing this update because these figures kind of gave me the creeps as a kid. The Sunshine Family were devised by Mattel as grown up hippies now starting their families in the middle of the "Me Decade". These extremely large eyed figures had a real folk art scene going on and remained popular for four years.

While girls were playing with the Sunshine family in North America, kids in the UK and Europe got Havoc a female super agent with a really big head. It's a really neat look into a relatively obscure toy line.

Ah yes! The Sunshine Cult.. I mean Family. With their empty, soulless eyes and robotic smiles, it's like the Stepford Wives meets Village of the Damned! They'll have you drinking the kool-aid in no time!

About Havoc: I always thought it ironic that the box art was TOTALLY HOT while the doll itself was kinda freakish.
