I remember having a large black plastic bazooka that had a handle that you pumped. The more times you pumped, the more power it had. When the trigger was pulled, it shot out a blast of air and it made a really loud thump sound. I think it had balls that you can shoot, but it was powerful enough to shoot other things.

Ah, yes. What every boy wanted under the Christmas tree, a toy bazooka. Mego sold the Sonic Blaster in the mid 1970s. In 1965, Remco came out with its own bazooka. In the 1980s, Electronic Toys had a combination bazooka, sniper rifle and assault gun toy all in one. Toy bazookas first became popular during the second world war, when materials for making a life-like toy were scarce, and labor was geared toward making real weapons for war. Late 1940s and 1950s, comic books (incl. DC and Archie Series) were packed with ads by two-bit novelty mail-order companies (mainly from New York or Chicago). One in particular was Honor House out of Lynbrook (not Brooklyn), NY, which began peddling awesome, though cheesy, combat-related toys in 1951. Everything from toy handguns to Sherman Tanks, submarines and later, spacecraft. Honor House also sold those notorious Sea Monkeys starting in 1961, as well as the 7-foot monster figures (1965). The toy tanks and subs were kits which required assembly, made from molded fiberglass, plastic or polystyrene, and were large enough to hold two kids. the guns or cannons had foam ammunition, and triggered with springs.
