Kojak Home Alarm System (eBay Link)

I swear this is a real thing, despite it looking like an SCTV commercial. The Kojak home alarm guarantees that night or day Telly Savalas will show up and rough up any punks that dare try to get in.

Remco Little Orphan Annie Doll (eBay Link)

I am actually a little frightened by this thing and it’s not just the googly eyes, although they don’t help. You see, my friend Courtney sent this listing to me exactly as I was looking at a catalogue of Little Orphan Annie toys. I feel like if I don’t share this, I’m gonna find it in my house.

Alf cross-stitch kit (eBay Link)

When people enter your home and the first thing they see is Alf? They know exactly who they’re dealing with.

Kool Aid Employee Mug (eBay Link)

Now, we all can’t be fortunate enough to work at Kool-Aid head office (which I assume has a water slide) but now I can pretend to be a big shot and sip tea in this bad boy.

Evel Knievel Trash Can (eBay Link)- 

Is there anything so synonymous with the 1970s other than Evel Knievel, I guess you could argue the Village People but hey, we’re both right.

    I just had to see if that Kojak Alarm System was the real deal; absolutely can’t believe this is real, just a remarkable piece of merchandising, thanks for sharing!
    PS. Little Orphan Annie is creepy, and you’re most certainly right – it’s all down to the eyes…
    Thanks for a nice read Brian.
