Roller Skates

Flyer Senior Roller Skates
No nylon wheels here. These were engineered ball bearing wheels and adjustable from size 9 junior to 8 adults. But let’s not waste time talking about putting our feet in them, no, these had other uses. We’d pull them apart and screw them to large pieces of plywood to make skate boards. Much more fun than nancy pancy roller skates.

Prices circa 1976 from Argos £4.25

70s Toys & Games

Remember the old retro toys you used to play with? Did you bounce about on spacehoppers, play pong or ride around on your cool Chopper? Can you recall the heroes Twirling Tim and Hurricane Hank, and who they used to do battle with in the arena? Did you used to come home from school with bruised knuckles from trying to beat 100 clacks on your Klackers? Or was you the studious type carefully making lovely patterns with your Spirograph which, no matter how careful you were, always seemed to cut through the paper turning your masterpiece into a mess.
