My wife and I were walking thru a Dollar Store when I spied a display of fuzzy worms. I immediately said “Hey, I had those when I was a kid.”
Basically, it was a fuzzy worm on a really thin and transparent string that you attached to a button on your shirt, which then allowed you to manipulate the string to do tricks.
But what this really brought back was memories of buying those little rubber parachutes guys at the dime store in the 70s. You wrapped their parachute around them and threw them up into the air. The chute would unravel and they would float to the ground. I loved those guys! I would play with them so much that the parachute would rip by the first day.
Do you remember those? Any other cheap dime store toys that you loved to play with in the 70s?
