Bet you didn’t know the Yeti had a bio. Okay, so it’s not the actual mythical creature. This does however make me want to track down old episodes of In Search Of.
The American Defense line from Remco went bat excrement crazy after starting out as a bunch of me-too copies of concepts made popular by GI Joe. The amount of colorful and downright nutty concepts is a treasure trove for those who appreciate weirdness and a just-go-with-it sense of fun in their toys. I think sometimes we get pedantic in our nerdy pursuits, and toys like this can breathe some innocent fun into our world of just-so adulthood.
