What childhood toy from the 80's are you? (aka Army Pete)

What childhood toy from the 80's are you?

"You're an Etch-a-Sketch!! You're the creative, artsy type who doesn't need to actually utilize a single muscle group in order to have fun. Doesn't matter though, you're still cool."

I can see that. Man, I am really tempted to plop down some money on ebay now. Etch-a-sketch, Rubik's Cube, My Little Pony (what?), Spirograph, Lite Brite, My Buddy (what?), Easy Bake Oven (ding!), Slinky (Oh man, is it hot in here? I'm getting all flush.), Mattel football, Weebles, Shrinky Dinks, Atari 2600, Mister Potato Head, Legos, and of course, GI Joe.

K: That's interesting. You know someone mentioned to me you were not very happy with your toys growing up.
J: Yeah, that was me.
K: Oh, that's right. Right, and you mentioned that you didn't get a G.I. Joe, you had an...
J: An Army Pete.
K: Right.
J: He was made of wood, and in the rain he would swell up and then split.
K: And we all know how painful that can be. :-)

"Well how can I, forget you girl, when there is always something there to remind me?"


  1. I'm disappointed! I took the quiz and mine came back as My Little Pony - what the heck? I never had a My Little Pony nor did I ever yearn for one. Now, I did beg, plead, sell my soul for a Rubik's cube when I was younger - and even committed the crime of sneakily opening some gifts under the tree at Christmas to see if I had received one. I think that story alone would attest that I'm not the “Sweet and innocent and happy, you make people want to spew burrito chunks. Even a Care Bear could kick your ass” person that quiz described me as!!!!! I want a recount!!!

    Even though I’m thoroughly disgusted with the My Little Pony image, I am laughing at myself – so thanks. :-)

  2. Yeah, look out for those Care Bears. They can be vicious ;-)
