PlaidStallions BIG Toys Week

PlaidStallions BIG Toys Week 

 We haven’t had a good old-fashioned theme week here in a while and I thought it fun to celebrate the truly colossal toys of our youth, the playthings so massive (and often costly) that you weren’t even sure if Santa could get the job done. 

Every day this week we’ll look at one of these items from such folks as Kenner, Mattel, Mego and Hasbro to name a few.

I hope folks will chime in here and on the facebook page with their recollections of some of these classics.

You can't write about big toys and not discuss the Remco Earthquake Tower.

I had this as a kid. One of the plastic army-men style characters was a guy screaming and flailing his arms, and it was clear that he was not going to make it out alive. And as instructed, I put the flexidisc on my dad'd turntable and grooved to the rumbles, sirens, explosions, and screams as I mashed the earthquake button over and over and the screaming people fell from the catwalks.
