The Water Wiggle attached to an ordinary garden hose with the idea that you turned on the water and this toy which really was a bright yellow plastic tubing topped by a cartoonish head would playfully get you wet while wiggling on your driveway. But it really was an amazingly dangerous toy which would literally go slam dancing into every kid who happened to be nearby. It would literally beat the heck out of you. Being a funny looking fat kid with 3 brothers, we absolutely loved it and eagerly looked forward to any unsuspecting neighbor kids who got too close to it on full blast. It literally could smack you in the nose and make a solid bleeder of anybody. Circa 1970.

That is the problem with kids nowadays....thier parents are scared they will get hurt...that is what makes you aware and avoid getting hurt when you get older....If you did not get hurt you were not being a kid!!!!!! Bike helmets....what a joke!!!!!

The toy got recalled back in the 70's but it was fun when I was a kid. We had the flattest front yard so all the neighborhood kids would come over to play. Almost as good as a swimming pool!

"That is the problem with kids nowadays....thier parents are scared they will get hurt..." You nailed it. Most parents today would say "Noooo little Johnny you can't have a Water Wiggle... you'll put an eye out!!" Things today have become pansied down because of legalized thieves aka lawyers.

I had one of these insanely dangerous devices. Loved it. If you ran the small hose attached to it through a pipe and had someone manning the faucet you could aim the damn thing with deadly accuracy. My parents realized that I was having way too much fun with it and too it awa
