Toys of the Seventies

The toys in this section are not STRICTLY 70s only toys. We have toys that were widely available for purchase DURING the 70s. This section was recently redesigned, so if you have any problems please let ChuckyG know.

Are you an 70s toys expert or just totally baffled by a leftover 70s toys item in your possession? We have a page for Unknown 70s Toys when you can send in your pictures, or help others identify their unknown toys items.

I also have a page about this for the 80s and 90s.

Mrs. Beasley, Comment by Erinys on December 10, 2016 - Report this comment
I had a Mrs. Beasley and LOATHED her with a passion. Sorry one of you didn't live near me to take _that face_ away! Besides the face, that limp dish-rag body was like it was dead. WHY would I haul around a dead baby(doll)? I eventually had to 'lose' her or she'd still be at my mother's. Some Xmas, I didn't get the normal modern plastic doll I wanted, I think one you fed & it ran thru the doll so you had to change diapers. Because that makes SO much more sense than a limp, dead babydoll (facepalm). My way, way too senile-crazy-psychotically religious Great Grandmother got it for me because it was 'wholesome.' Fortunately, eventually I was saved from her wholesome world -- spending summers with her at 8 got old fast when she repeated every day the only time she and her husband had relations was when he got drunk and became violently forceful. So last thing I needed was a reminder and ANOTHER older great great aunt to telo me what to do, there were already too many. I'm pretty sure that in the Ed and Loraine Warren possession tale/movie, the doll wasn't Annabelle, it was Mrs. Beasley and THAT FACE!

I'm holding one in its box right now. It measures about 10 3/4" long and 3 3/4" wide. The box looks like a cage. It say's "As Seen on TV" in the top left corner front of the box. On one end of the box is printed: The Sentry Co. Duarte, Calif. 91010
Bizzy Buzz Buzz, Comment by Loraine on December 09, 2016 - Report this comment
I remember Busy Buzz Buzz as an electric safety scissors - plugged in, was black and red - probably 1958-1960 maybe? I really loved those
Hot Line By Mattel, Comment by Rob Lambert on December 08, 2016 - Report this comment
Mattel's Hot Line train used a Sizzlers Juice Machine to charge up the engine. Set also had one or two cars and caboose. Track similar to Hot Wheels, only black. From the Saturday morning cartoon vault: TV commercial for this aired on the "Hardy Boys" cartoon show over ABC (5/23/70).
Hippity Hop, Comment by Rob Lambert on December 08, 2016 - Report this comment
Hippity (or Hoppity) Hop jumping toy first made by Sun Products in 1969. This had to be inflated at home, using a bicycle pump with needle. Many schools used these for physical education, but they took up lots of space inflated. TV advertising was spotty, and mainly on a local basis.
Dynomite 8 Track Player, Comment by Rob Lambert on December 08, 2016 - Report this comment
Panasonic made the Dynamite 8 player. Surprisingly, no one mentioned that Jimmie Walker (as J.J., his "Good Times" persona) did a great TV commercial, late 1974. Some models also played cassettes as well as 8 track.
Shrinky-Dinks, Comment by Rob Lambert on December 08, 2016 - Report this comment
Shrinky- Dinks was a product of Colorforms from 1971. YouTube has one TV commercial, stressing that a parent should do the oven portion of making these. Kids could freehand, or use the DC and Marvel Superhero sets that were available.
Talking Football, Comment by Rob Lambert on December 07, 2016 - Report this comment
This was Mattel Talking Football from 1971. Talking device powered by AA-cell batteries. about 15 play discs were included. A decent simulation game for its time. A newer version, Game Time Talking Football (NFL endorsed) came out around 1992, with more elaborate detail.
Unknown, Comment by Rob Lambert on December 07, 2016 - Report this comment
Am using this page to make mention of a toy not listed that was popular: Tricky Tommy Turtle by Remco, produced from 1967 to 1970. Made of hard plastic and powered by four D-cell batteries, you blew a whistle and Tommy would move forward (wheels) about three feet, then stop, then its head went back in the shell. The one I got in 1969 had yellow/red shell, blue head and tail. Retailed for $13. From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, TV commercial for Tommy, aired on the "Super 6" cartoon show over NBC (11/18/67).
Whoosh, Comment by Audrey on December 07, 2016 - Report this comment
If you put zoom ball into amazon then you will get this type of product. I thought it was called woosh ball too but nothing comes up - put zoom ball into the search bit and it will find it!!!
Crazy Car, Comment by Mark on December 06, 2016 - Report this comment
I used to ride this thing early in the morning. The neighbor hid it because it was so loud and annoying. It was a great toy.
