Vintage Family Photos: Stretch Armstrong

Christmas 1977.

Aside from my grandparents record collection, you'll find three items shining brightly in this snapshot of my brother.

The most obvious of the three, of course, is Stretch Armstrong.

I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure Stretch didn't live up to his name in our house and eventually ruptured a limb oozing his inner stretchiness all over the carpet.

Peeking out on the right side of this picture is the Fisher Price Emergency Rescue Truck.

This wasn't a toy I remember my brother or I having as kids so I'm guessing it went home with a cousin.

Finally, to the left, you can see someone checking out a Playskool Digger the Dog toy.
