Found this last weekend and found the Lurch flashlight a couple of days before, when it rains Adams Family it pours.

You never know with the preservatives that they put in that stuff.  But I don't think I would try it.
Long live the UMA!

I am dumbfounded by the genius of that game. No batteries, no mechanical pieces to fail.

Some plastic tops, some string and a plastic base and you could play for HOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have over this past week.

I highly recommend to all of the Monster dads here, FIND THIS GAME ON EBAY. I'm sure it goes cheap and have some simple old fashioned fun with your kids.

Agreed.  I found one at a yard sale last summer, and we have a great time playing it.

Thought I would share this with the group, Santa actually brought this Scooby Doo board game for Christmas and my 4 and 6 year old have never gotten this much use out of a game.  I might have forgotten to mention how much detail is on his house.  A great find for anyone who likes haunted houses or fun board games.

That is AWESOME! I would love to have one of those.Scooby Doo is one of my favorite shows and always will be.
I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

Thought I saw that in one of the clearance stores, tj maxx ross marshalls type places, looks cool.

On another scooby shaggy note I see moebius reissued the polar light mystery machine van model that includes the figures.

As far as tactile, hands on, kinetic energy toys, I was born in 1965 and I will make the following list of the coolest toys for me from age 6 to 12 as the following, in no particular order:  SSP racers, Sizzlers, the entire Evel Knievel line, Vertibird, Sea Diver, Battling Tops, Rock em Sock em robots, Stretch Monster (and Armstrong), Electro Shot shooting gallery, Whamo Air Blaster, Hot Wheels, Bing Bang Boing, SpinWelder, Thingmaker, Shaker Maker, Rapco Monsters, ClikClaks, Estes and Century model rockets....

There are a bunch more, please help me with any I forgot.  Duke the Action dog too maybe.

We found this one at our local Target store and this weekend saw them at Toys R Us.

That's funny you mention Battling Tops Dan. I have a brother 4 years my senior who had this as a child. I remember playing it with him for hours. Last summer I bought a mint in box one and surprised him when he came over. Here, my brother, a CEO of GE Interlogics and he was instantly transported back to being a kid in a matter of minutes. Thanks for bringing Battling Tops up Dan!
