If you have been my friend on facebook for the past let's say six months, you will have heard me talk about Wacky Wally. I have been searching the internet high and low for one of these gems. A few months back I found one on ebay selling for about 30 bucks but thought that was completely crazy, even though it was from the 80's.
You're asking yourself, "WTF is she talking about?" I am talking about WACKY WALLY PEOPLE!!! Do you remember back in the 80's there used to be toys for free in cereal, well one promo was a Wacky Wall Climber, called Wacky Wally. You threw them at the wall and they stuck there and then they started to crawl down. As a kid I just loved these things. As an adult I want to relive my glory days, so I set out to find one. Hence, the search all over the internet. I was unlucky. These lil guys were few and far between.
Well guess what?! After my mom's funeral a week ago my sister and I went to Bed Bath and Beyond. My sister was looking for tea for her Keurig and I was hunting down elusive Color Club Nail Polish Collections. As I turned the corner at the back of the store I saw it. A whole display, over 100 of my most sought after 80's toy. WACKY WALLY'S!!! In so many new colors. I was automatically drawn to my favorite color PINK and it had GLITTER!!! I picked it up and hugged it. Yes, I hugged a toy, so what? It was only 2.99. I was so tempted to buy more. I only bought one though. I was so happy. If any of you are looking for these, run over to BB&B. I just can't believe they are making these again. If I see these again I just might have to buy another.
