Hobbit Book and Record (eBay Link)- My goodness, I had no idea this was a thing. I missed a meeting as a kid I guess. The Hobbit was a cartoon on television on prime time, so of course, I watched it. Hell my mother plunked me in front “Animal Farm” and “Fantastic Planet” as a kid, I still have nightmares. I don’t have Hobbit related nightmares though, I should rewatch this.

Chewgum Warriors (eBay Link)- I honestly have no memory of this toy but the combination of terrible candy and a terrible action figure that resembles Darth Vader? Yeah, I’d have bought this as a kid. There is no doubt, I would have been in.

My Favourite Martian Magic Slate (eBay Link)- Kids today, we didn’t have no fancy ipads, we have magic slate and…it kinda sucked. I used to write swears in them when I saw them at stores. As for My Favourite Martian, I have never seen a single episode in my life. Although, I did find a used comic at the “Book Between” as a kid and was familiar with the concept. I was a sucker for TV and movie comics as a kid, even if I had never seen the program.

Ideal Toys Fantasy Island Board Game (eBay Link)- I know I’m a Fantasy Island fanboy but I’m also a board game junkie and I really enjoy this game on it’s own. So, if you were looking for a fun one for family game day, I recommend this as a palate cleanser to Cattan or Monopoly.

    I had a Chewgum Warrior and I recall they were available before the Kenner figures, so it was my first Darth Vader.
