Throwback Thursday - Stupid Sailor Suit
|My face explains it all.|
Triston is a little old and big to place into a sailor suit. But if I could get him into one I would surely get a picture of it!!
|Magical Musical Thing by Mattel|
For those of you who read last weeks Throwback Thursday you will remember I had a mini giveaway for anyone who could remember the name of my old Christmas toy. Surprisingly many people remember it being their favorite toy but only one person remembered what it was called. Alanna of Running 42KM not only remembered the name of the toy but even sent me the old commercial. She picked the fabulous prize behind door number 1. Stay tuned to see what she won after a word from our sponsors...
The name of the toy is the Magical Musical Thing by Mattel. The marketing people at Mattel REALLY needed to work a little harder when naming this toy. What a lame name for such a cool toy! I can so see myself driving my mother and sister crazy with this toy (that is probably why it magically disappeared). I can guarantee I did the head playing routine also.
Side Note: I think this commercial was filmed in the Netherlands because I would bet my next paycheck that the girl in the commercial is Silly Girl Running. Look at the red pigtails, the cheese doodle hair pieces, overly bright clothing, etc. Look at the evidence below and you decide for yourself. I'm just saying...
