Pop! Pop! Pop!


It takes a brillaint mind to add colour to some packing foam and market it as a toy to children. Finger Pops were actually a lot of fun, just don't get them wet, trust me....

Wow. those are something I had completely forgotten about. Talk about a stupid idea that took off, these are like the Slinky or POGs where something that was essentially scraps turned into a toy phenomenon.

I had these for a while but they were a flash in the pan since people quickly realized how ridiculous paying money for pieces of foam was.

I'm guessing these were also toxic.

I had those; and remember them fondly. Along with all the other toxic toys; which probably explains a lot!

I wonder... how toxic was that goo in stretch Armstrong...

Yup! I had them too! They were really fun...for about two days.

The goo in Stretch Armstrong dolls was (if you can believe what the box says) was "food grade corn syrup".

My Stretch doll leaked, and I tasted it. Sure tasted like corn syrup to me.
