Subject: These toys were all the rage

Written By: jwsisliving1 on 04/08/04 at 01:27 a.m.

I was just thinking about the toys I got really into( post-80s)through elementary and junior high. Off the top of my head I can remember: the Crash Test Dummies; Gak( I think that's what it was called), which was sort of a slimy, gooky substance that you strectched and pounded. There were all these great toys that Nickelodeon came out with. Nickelodeon had a pretty big line of toys. And I still have my Stimpy doll, which farts when you squeeze it. And there were the Koosh balls. I know I'm forgetting alot, but my memory is getting worse with age( I'm turning 21 this year), and most of these toys faded out in the early to mid-nineties.

I remember Gak, I had purple and Neon green, I also had it's spin off. I think it was called floam. It was mini styrofoam balls mixed with something else. I didn't like it very much though, it would dry up so fast.

I used Gak as snot and fooled everyone that I sneezed and blew a chunk of green gook that came from my nose. ;D
