Silly PUTTY!!
Does anyone remember how great Silly Putty would bounce if you rolled it up into a ball? Some years later we had the Super Ball (remember those black things we got out of the gum machines?), but rolled-up Silly Putty was the first high bouncer I can think of.
Silly Putty and the Sunday papers … A plastic egg with a rubbery substance inside. When you flattened the “putty” onto a newspaper page, it carbon copied whatever was on the page onto itself. The joke pages were great fun with Silly Putty. Once you had your face or image on the putty, you Stre-e-e-t-c-h-e-d the putty. I stretched Nancy & Sluggo, Superman, and a few presidents. Hmmmm…. Wonder what Clinton would look like … ; )
