|Waterful Ring Toss by TOMY|
Growing up, I was the oldest kid in our extended family. My cousins are all much younger than me so there wasn't really anyone to play with until the mid 1980s. However, in the mid 1970s, I was lucky enough to have an aunt who was just 11 years older than me. A while back I blogged about her awesome 1970s record collection back in the day.
My aunt loved these impossible-to-play ring toss water games. Waterful games were manufactured by TOMY back in the 1970s. They were like these plastic handheld tanks filled with water. Inside the small tank-like game would be a ring toss or ball toss. You would control the game with a button or two. There were a variety of games including basketball and soccer -- games of true skill because it was super challenging to win against the water.
I always imagined breaking the Waterful toys open. I was so curious to touch and see what was inside. Was it was really water? Was that clear substance actually some sort of gel? I was a weird kid.
Did anyone have one of these Waterful games, games you play with in water?
