The other day I logged into Facebook to see this video posted on my wall (thank you Jamer-Looney!):
So let's be clear on this. You can play with the Swing Wing at the zoo, perfecting your parallel bar routine, eating a banana (second 34), rowing a boat, or when you're stuck in quicksand (second 42). Is that right? I don't understand why we don't see more of these. They are quite the all-purpose toy, no?
Here's what Wikipedia had to say about it: "The Swing Wing is a toy, similar to the Hula Hoop, worn on the head and twirled by moving the neck and/or body in a back and forth motion. It was developed by Transogram Games and introduced in 1965... It has been speculated that the toy was recalled due to injury suffered in the necks of children caused by the continual jerking motions required to use the toy."
If you or someone you know has a Swing Wing, I will pay you 8 bajillion Ad Bits dollars for a video of it. I wouldn't lie.
Is the Swing Wing song caught in your head now? It is? I'm sorry. Here, cleanse your ear pallet with a little Willow Smith, who no doubt, would have owned a Swing Wing if she was around in the '60s.
