Misc. 70’s and 80’s Toys

Some toys don’t easily fall into a certain category, and may also have come out in the 70s or early 80s—and it’s difficult to remember exactly which decade these toys belong to. They still deserve to be highlighted, though! Did you have any of these 70s or 80s toys?

70s or 80s "Freddy" Dog Toy | 80sretroplace.wordpress.comFreddy (?)

“Freddy” was probably the official name of this toy, but it’s difficult to remember if that name was just randomly given to this dog. In any case, you could push down Freddy’s tail, which wound him up, so to speak, and he would move forward on little wheels at the bottom to pick up a ball. If his mouth scooped up the ball, it would close and “hold” it.
