When I was a kid ('til about 7 years old), there was always a Colorforms set in my toybox. This set looks familiar, I'm sure I had it. It's dated 1971, but it could have been sold up until '73 or even '74.

They are definitely familiar and I am sure I had them. They were like a peel and stick toy, right?

Joe, I just don't remember ever seeing one of those.

Marissa said...

I remember playing with these in my 1st grade class. So much fun!

When you think about it, these were the lamest toys ever - just sticking these little pictures on a backdrop. And yet I lapped these things up!

Maybe I was just easily amused.

Cheer: They were alot of fun. I always loved when my folks would buy me a new set. I had a flintstones set also, but I can't seem to find a pic yet.

Jim: Yes, the pieces were a sort of rubber and they'd stick to the set background which was kind of a glossy cardboard.

Ann: Maybe Curtis remembers them. I'd be surprised if he didn't.

Marissa: It was. I never got to play with them at school, though.

Gilligan: The simple things were always the best, im my opinion.

Miss Alex: Are you trying to tell me you were poor??? Somehow I get the idea that you were..
I'll check out your post now.

My grandparents had one that was the Charlie Brown gang. I was going to post a photo on my blog. I asked about it last time I was there, but my poor grandmother doesn't even remember it. I hope she didn't throw it out.

My parents threw out all my old stuff. It was all in great shape too. While I can't really say I hate them for it, I will get even one day..

I hated them, the pieces would stop sticking in the first week or we would lose the pieces, they never lasted long in our house.
