Baby Boomer Thursdays: "Every Boy Wants a Remco Toy...and So Do Girls"

Remember that slogan? Looking over this list of Remco Toys from Newark, NJ, they had pretty good market penetration in my neighborhood as a kid.

I remember the Crystal Radio, Flying Fox Airlines, Whirlybird Helicopter, Mr. Kelly's Car Wash, the Johnny Reb Cannon, the Tiny Tears Doll, Drive In Movie Theater, the whole bit.

I also came across this remarkable website by one Ira Gallen, who is preserving large portions of baby boomer TV history such as these advertisements. Amazing, appreciated, and worth a visit.

Now for the commercials...

PLEASE NOTE: If these videos disappear from the web, please find more Remco Toy commercials at this link, including a number of them with a young Patty Duke. Or visit Ira's website here.
