Remember the Zowees, was Shell Gas Station promotional.

I have a few of them.

Now-a-days they would have been classified as a choking hazard.

Does anyone remember the name of that toy candy maker that was like a bullet or sinker mold? I used to have one, it was a gift from my grand parents to me and my brothers,, you poured this syrup into the mold, plugged the unit in and voila,, rubbery, sweet or semi-sweet, little reptiles and bugs.

Now that brought back some memories!!!! Every year after Christmas diner we would have the annual epic Monopoly game, excuse me I mean epic Monopoly battle. And I remember playing UNO one year when the power was out from a snow storm. We used oil lamps for light and had a great time. That was the best snow storm ever.

That's pretty cool donthav,i'm sure everyone wanted to come play at your house
I just had the little console Pong game made by Atari, that plugged into the TV for 2 players or 1 player.
