Oh, man, that is the neatest toy ever! I'd love to have one of those.

I used to have a clock that was kind of like that. It had some gears and innards you assembled to it to a real clock that ran. I'll have to see if I can find what that was.

Here's a fun commercial brought to you by Hasbro. Here they're advertising two totally unrelated toys---an unheard of marketing idea today!

That is unusual, the two completely different products. Man, I remember Mr. Snowcone. I wanted one of those SO bad...and never got one. :roll: Oh, well, they probably didn't work that well, anyway. (⟵sour grapes)
