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.

Remco sold assembly style toy sets called Fun Gum from 1968 to 1970. No actual gum was used, but the body parts were rubber and interchangeable. Three sets that first came out were monsters, birds, and a "Doctor Dolittle" (movie) animal set, with Rex Harrison photo printed on box. TV commercial for this aired on "Bozo's Circus" over WGN in Chicago (3/13/68).
Art Tracer, Comment by Rob Lambert on February 19, 2018 - Report this comment
Sketch A Graph was a product of Australia from the late 1970s. In earlier times, they were known as electric drawing sets, which resembled drafting kits, allowed you to trace different images. Drawing sets go back to the 1940s. In antique stores, I found a Bugs Bunny set from 1947. Also as notable, a 1969 "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" set by Lakeside Toys, which had several dozen character and prop images to trace. The electrical sets used a light bulb to help the "artist" along.
Alien Punching Bag, Comment by Rob Lambert on February 19, 2018 - Report this comment
Up until Star Wars, there's been little in alien-themed punching bags from the 1970s. Closer to modern times, Bestway Domestics Toys came out with a series called BiZerks. One was of a robot resembling R2D2. Another was a green monster that resembled Plankton of "SpongeBob Square Pants" fame. They looked 1990s, and Bestway also had licensed "Angry Birds" bags some ten years after. Both alien bags were tagged as Big Mouth Slam Bags.
2XL, Comment by Rob Lambert on February 19, 2018 - Report this comment
Mego Toys made the 2XL 8-track player in 1978. Box describes it as the "Robot With Personality." Along with the ability to play music carts, several pre-programmed game, musical and story carts were sold separately. A game extension, Tri X, provided additional games. 2XL ran only on an AC adaptor, no batteries for portability. It retailed originally at $45, which was comparable to the hand-held Mattel games of the time.
