Has there ever been a toy that screams “It’s 1975!” louder than Kenner’s oddly titled Kiddie Fondue? Now you can have Carol from Girl Scouts over along with her husband Tom, and after dinner, you can show them a slideshow of your trip to the Wisconsin Dells. A fun time will be had by all; thanks, Kenner!
I was curious to know if this toy got made and a quick scan of eBay found a Kiddie Fondue for a very low price. Kenner Kiddie Fondue was not a hit and did not return for the 1976 season. That’s too bad because I was hoping for the “Conversation Pit” playset and “Kiddie Hi-Fi” complete with Tom Jones records.

That’s why we created Toy-Ventures magazine, an old-school print publication dedicated to vintage toys from the 1960s to the 1990s. Each issue is packed with never before seen images and information written by some of the top collectors. We’ve got six issues and climbing; please check our page here or visit our store.
