Did any one have a "thing maker"? I loved mine. Went in to ToysRUs with my kids a couple of years ago, and low and behold! THINGMAKERS!! I don't think they did very well, because I saw them on clearance later on. Maybe they still make them. I don't have to go to TRU as much any more because the only things my kids want are video games and legos.

Is the "thing maker" the one that made the bugs? If so, I had one. I loved my water wiggle!!! First time I got silly putty, I would take every thing off my walls & breakables off my dresser, roll it into a ball & slam it against the wall, & play dodge ball with myself! LOL. I remember going to Sat. matinee, and for the rest of the week the neighbor kids & I would play out the movie. Roy Rogers, Tarzan, and we all had to be Cheetah. And the ice cream man, 5 cent fudgesicles or dreamsicles were my favorite!

We used to call them ka-nockers. Don't know how they were spelled. I had some that were orange.
