Super ELASTIC BUBBLE PLASTIC - DR. MEMORY.
Anyone remember the multi-colored chemical glue-like substance (with toxic fumes) that you wadded up onto one end of a straw then blew air into it making a GIANT, multi-colored ball? It was made for children 5 and up and if you breathed in the fumes a little (enthusiastically) ... well, you know the rest.

We kids then LOVED that shit.

As I recall, they only manufactured it for a few years, like circa 1969 - 1975.

I wonder if they got parental complaints about kids getting whacked out on breathing the stuff.

But kids always historically would find out ways to get whacked out no matter what.

Anyone remember over the counter CODEINE cough medicine? Circa the same exact time?

I do

err umm, apparently, it is either still being manufactured or some entrepreneurial wise guy picked up on some sort of nostalgia for it. It also appears that you can only buy one color at at time of it, not the PSYCHEDELIC 60's/get high off the fumes version we had as kids.. And the former version had big tubes of the stuff, it would last a while. Now it looks as if the tubes are good for one big balloon and that's it:



and with this version, ya don't even get colors :(

Understanding does not mean believe,
Of the handful who believe, most may not know what to do,
Those who even know, how many will actually do ?
And the rare ones who have done it.......

That was also produced by the same co., "Wham-O!"

That video of the best of Wham-O has that ad for clackers within it.

Bizarro.

Dan Aykroyd & Laraine Newman did a famous sketch the first season of SNL, in 1975-76, in which Jane Curtin interviews the unscrupulous toy manufacturer (Aykroyd) who makes dangerous toys for children. He defends his toy co. in a hysterically funny fashion (Dr. Memory #6)

If you buy some, tell me if it's still as much fun as I remember it.

I think the last time I remember it being sold was circa the U.S. Bicentennial year, 1976 at like a cheapo toy dept. inside of a Woolworth's shop. Remember Woolworth's? They started out all over America in the 1880's/90's as "The Five & Dime" stores. That was the five cents and the ten cents stores. They were the 99cents stores of their time. Woolworth's evolved out of them and became one of the biggest cheap trinket retail shops in the country (and with LOTS of imitators/competitors such as Grant's, McCrory's, Woolco & [was it] "Kreske's" mart, which evolved into K-Mart, I believe).

Did you watch any of that Wham-O compilation video? Omg, it's addictive. I didn't see the whole thing yet. Your Hi-Yo is probably in there!

I watched their Hoola-Hoop ad, one of them and prob. the fist ad for their FRISBEE! Only it was called the "Frisbee Flying Saucer!" I did NOT know that. Holy sheet! So that's how it started.

I like their nuclear bomb shelter cover. :)

Only $179. Might need one of those.

No mention anywhere of the Hi-Yo.

Finally found a pic of it with another toy whose name gets blocked for some reason. Man this is a weird place.
