Since I am actually a girl, the best thing about Action Man (or GI Joe if you’re from across the Pond) during my childhood was that I could use him to simulate dolly snogging with my
This was useful in as far as it went, but he was a little too big to start copulating with my Pippa dolls. I mean, ouch. (I resorted, in their case, to cutting off their long hair and drawing felt-tip stubble on to them so that they could serve as pseudo boyfriends for Pips and pals). This is not painting me in a positive light so far is it? Anyway, ploughing on….
I am guessing the Action Man was snaffled from my big brother’s box of toys. He would have been far too distracted by his seven storey Matchbox carpark (which had been crudely constructed up the stairs in a bid to take out any adult who needed the loo) to notice a missing dolly.
Loving these awesome vintage toys that bring back so many wonderful memories. Anyone else out there who used to play with Action figures?!!
