    Hmm, maybe, dunno. I think maybe he's trying to say "AF is Midway". (BTW, I too had the little submarine we're talking about here.)

    Can't believe this thread is still alive...You know your old when you watch vcr tapes/photo's when everybody is gone except you...Sorry to be morbid but my DH is gone 1 yr ago on 2/15...Snow was right I survived it but sad....

    So here we go:

    Silly Puddy-Dick Tracy and the Sunday News were great for that, use to love stretching Dondi's face...Play doh
    Slinky
    Thumbelina, Chatty Cathy(had me in mind), Walking Doll,Kissy
    Etch a Sketch
    Color-Forms(loved those)
    Yo-Yo's, Mr Potato Head, Jack in a Box
    Trolls-adored them, especially shocking Pink w/black ends..early punk
    Hoola-Hoops
    Snow Cones from Woolworth's(Cola syrup of course)
    Creepy Crawlers-drove my mom nuts...
    Yes I had Barbie,Ken and Midge- Easy Bake Oven

    My uncle worked for the ideal toy factory when I was a child..Walking Suzie was the same size as me! I do remember when I was about 18mos-2yrs old..Shared a room with my older sister..My crib was up against the wall near the lite switch..Oh nooooo....Yep I tortured her..Had this big monkey with red suspenders chocolate body with a yellow chest..Can't remember the name of that darn thing but I would throw it at her...probably the first real memory of my room...crayon's the BIG BOX..still love puzzles to this day!

    My uncle obviously was good to me!
