While I wasn’t a big BSG fan as a kid, I wouldn’t have minded laying my head down to Marta Jensen’s face every night. And hey, I wouldn’t kick Lorn Greene out of bed either…

Odd McDonalds Salad Hat (eBay link)

Some marketing guy made minimum wage employees wear a hat about how they can toss you a salad. I swear it wasn’t me, it sounds like something I’d do but I was in high school at the time.


Fisher Price Sesame Street Playset (eBay link)

I don’t really have to say anything here do I? This is one of the greatest playsets ever made and if you don’t believe me, I’ll see you at the bike racks at 3, buster brown.

Supergirl Night shirt

70s Supergirl Night Shirt (ebay link)This is just so cool; how many of these survived? Thanks to my love for the Mego figure, this will always be my favourite look for the maiden of might.


Knock-Off Evel Knievel Van (eBay Link)Durham Industries loved Knocking Off Evel Knievel (see this …thing) and this one is just kind of hilarious. Take a van, slap on the American Flag and the world “Stunts” and hey it’s lunchtime!

    Eons ago got the Sesame Street playset for my now middle-aged niece. I was involved in community theater, and on some shows our set designer came up with life-size approximations, building exteriors that rotated and unfolded to become interiors.
