Without questions Colorform were one of my favorite toys as a kid, and I have a number of them I will feature in this series. I’ll start with the Star Snoopy Colorforms, which was a shameless rip-0ff of everything Star Wars, right down to the angled font, light saber, X-Wing fighters, etc., but it was Snoopy and it was pretty cool. Actually, I can’t really remember a Colorform I didn’t enjoy, they were simple and gave me hours upon hours of enjoyment. It kind of saddens me I can’t by them for my kids these days, because they seemed like a cheap, easy way to play creatively with some simple strips of plastic. If you can hear me yelling out there, BRING BAKC THE COLORFORMS, DAMN IT!
Hey, they did reissue the original set.
You just made my month, maybe my year, where does one buy them? I never see them in Target and the like. I was getting deeply saddened over here.
The link in my comment goes to Amazon, but I’m sure they’re available elsewhere, too. 🙂
Sorry I overlooked that, and I can see you are going old gold. The original is very geometric, not nearly pop culture enough for the cultural shaping I need to do on my children 🙂
I want the PLanet of the Apes set, the Smurfs, the original Haunted House, etc.
