💥The Razor Blade💥
For my 7th or 8th birthday I got a toy called a “String Racer” - there have been several variations of the concept, but basically it glides across a string back and forth. It had two hooks so it could pick up these geometric balls, which I’d attach Joes to.
The String Racer was my favorite thing to use with Joes! I’d pretend it was like a drone, because it didn’t really look like a vehicle, and it was unfortunately bright pink 🤷♂️.
For my brother’s 8th birthday he got the Razor Blade and I nearly crapped my pants! It was basically a String Racer that looked like a helicopter 😱
I took it so often that he would actually lock it up in his mini locker at night. I loved it until it broke... which didn’t really take that long.
20+ years later and I have my own minty Razor Blade!!! I should probably get ahold of a String Racer some day though.
