    As I’ve often said before, I absolutely love when a popular trend or phrase of the day is matched with a product that has absolutely nothing to do with it. In this case, as much as I would love a fireman to go go go up a ladder as fast as he can it’s absolutely not the case that I want him to GoGo dance up the ladder. Popularizing on the dance trend, “GoGo” is absolutely force-fed to this product.

    Is there any year on the box?

    I absolutely love how tiny he is and how huge that 101 story high ladder is. He must make an unbelievable sound as he shimmies up and down the ladder. I would record it and use it as a sound effect.

    Also superior is the fact that they’ve split his occupation into two words, fire man.

    When I see Go Go in combination with toys like this, I think of Inspector Gadget, especially the mid-80s cartoon. Before using any of his gadgets he would say “Go go gadget” and then the name of the gadget.

      I forgot about that but Inspector Gadget probably influenced the naming of this toy more than the dance did. One way or another, it’s still co-opting a trend to push the sales of your own nonrelated product. So (thankfully) kitschy.
