No great mystery as to why this toy isn’t around anymore.  I’m sure it was responsible for multiple cases of whiplash and spinal cord injuries, not strong selling points for the kiddy market.  There’s something sort of frightening about the images in this commercial– it looks like the sort of spot Diane Arbus would’ve come up with had she gone the Madison Avenue route.

    Completely nutty toy!! This company was probably sued within a week of this product going to market. Although I can’t say I wouldn’t kill to own one today. What an excellent Easter bonnet!

    This is very silly, but a while ago me and a friend became totally obsessed with this commercial and were randomly singing it all the time, haha. BOING~!
