Its too soon to talk about the Big Day so I won't but the onset of the dark month of November has got me thinking about the promise of day-glo party favours and Hong Kong novelties. My childhood was chock-full of little plastic toys and vending charms, so here are a few that have been picked up by that big claw in my mind:
Plastic pipes: the classic Dad shape and the three-pot bubblers: blub!
Plastic pea shooter: tchooom!
Ball floater: pfffft!
Plastic catapult: Yeoooow!
Skull key rings: Yikes!
Skeleton key Rings: dem bones!
Top Hat Skull: the Bone Daddy!
King Kong figures: Grrrrrr!
Super Balls: zzzzzooooom!
Strange Change Lost World cubes: plup!
Which plastic toy thingies do you recall readers - from Birthdays, parties, holidays, Thanksgiving or trips out?
