The 3 Hottest Vintage 70s Toys in America – Are They In Your Attic?
The 70s was an era of revolution in politics, science, pop culture, economy, and the society in general. One thing that has remained with us up to this day, and has continued to amuse and fascinate us is the 70s vintage toys. They are still present in America today; most of them are worth more than they were 40 years ago–some in the thousands of dollars. Let’s take a trip along the 70’s timeline and check on the toys that are making reappearance in this new millennium.
1) Kreskin’s ESP Game. This board game is designed to help you find out if you have Extrasensory Perception. The Amazing Kreskin was a famous mentalist or thought reader from the late 60s, and until now his name remains known to the world. He is actually regarded by many as the Nostradamus of the twentieth century. On the first portion of the game, a player attempts to guess the symbols on a given card; the second portion comes with a pendulum and a set of cards, used to get answers to questions, either by letters or a yes-no on the main board. Are you wondering if you should get a haircut, or accept that job offer? Try this game.
2) Etch-A-Sketch. This toy had been phenomenal in its generation and had remained popular to this day. This must-have drawing toy is made of a plastic frame with gray screen, and two knobs at the front which control drawing movements. Today, modern innovations of this famous toy have been produced, and millions have been sold. It has absolutely taken the world by storm.
3) Crissy Doll. The Crissy Doll is unique in its own way – it grows its auburn hair. It has an opening at the top of its head where an adjustable lock of hair is kept. Little girls could then adjust the hair of Crissy into any length they want. Dolls are indeed little girls’ best friends.
These and a lot of other vintage 70s toys are making their comeback. So take them off your attic — there’s a better place for them in your playroom. These toys have truly endured the test of time.
