Take Me Back Tuesday – Teddy Ruxpin


How do you play along?
We all have tons of photos from the days before the digital camera. I figure if I just scan a few each week, eventually I will get them all safely into my computer. But you don’t need to scanner to participate – Just find a photo that takes you back to another time.
Every week you can come back here and share photos that “take you back.” Maybe it is the bad hair we all had in the 80’s or the bell-bottoms you swore were so hip in the 70’s.

Remember this creepy little guy? I’m not talking about the “come back” retro toys or the newer versions I’m talking about the very first time this guy hit the market. I do. I remember my neighbor friend had one and boy was I jealous, I’m talking “plot to snag it when she wasn’t looking and pretending the dog ran off with it” jealousy here. We were far from being well off enough to afford frivolous toys like Teddy Ruxpin but MAN did I want that little guy! Thinking about it now I can remember sitting in her house with cartoons on the TV and thinking how badly done to I was (yeah right!) because I didn’t have a Teddy Ruxpin like she did. Funnily enough now when I see that sucker in toy stores now they completely creep me out!

    I always wanted him too! I think all talking toys became creepy after the Chucky movies… 🙂

    What a twist on Take Me Back… Thanks so much for participating. I hadn’t thought of Teddy in years!!

      LOL Kari it was my first time doing Take Me Back so I most probably did it the wrong way but hey, it’s been one of those days!

    My sister had the knock off Teddy — it was a talking and moving Big Bird!! We always stuck our fingers in his mouth as he talked, pretending he was eating our hands! ROFL. Thanks so much for this blast from the past!!
