Bizarre '70s toys:

The 1978 Marla Gibbs doll. Complete with disco evening wear. I don't know how many children wanted to role play as a sarcastic, insubordinate black maid / disco queen, but I'm guessing not many.

All: I didn't know about it either until recently. I wonder how many kids got these, and I also wonder how many actually asked for them
