Inflatable Blowup Gumby from the 80s


Inflatable, blue up Gumby hung out
 in my room until about 1988.
At twelve, I became obsessed with these inflatable, blowup palm trees. I can't find the exact palm tree online to share them with you, but they were the coolest. I had a small one and one that was huge, like five feet tall.

I especially loved the blowup, inflatable Gumby. I would put hats on him or dress him in a cool band t-shirt. I think I held onto Gumby for a while and then I outgrew him in about tenth grade. Does anyone remember the blowup Gumby or inflatable palm trees from back then?

Remember Over Our Heads? The cool gift shop on Facts of Life? Click here to view the huge, green inflatable palm tree I had in my bedroom and loved almost as much as Gumby.

Those things never lasted long around me. I think it had to do with me being a hyperactive little boy. :P

Yeah, i definitely remember the inflatable palm trees. I want to say I remember seeing a smallish pink one on the regular. Maybe at a store in the mall? One of those specialty "gifts and games" type places.
