Secrets Are Scary

Even though i was around for the 70's, i was a wee little tyke, so maybe i missed a key trend from that era.

I KNOW that we dealt with Watergate, and Vietnam.

I KNOW that it was the tail end of free-love and hippy power and the Age of Aquarius, and all that....

But what i DON'T remember is that apparently the 70's were a time when toy makers thought it might be fun to scare the LIVING SHIT out of kids!

That's the only answer i can think of that makes sense for the creation of the Baby Secret doll.

I mean, i am now a grown-ass man and this doll scares the crap outta me! There is NO FUCKING WAY that some 70's ad man checked out this commercial and said "Yeah, this is good! Kids all over the world will feel happy and safe having this little fucker in their homes!"

I think tonight i'll be sleeping with my nightlight on.....
