Looks like it’s going to be hot all over the place again today! Stay cool and have a great summer with these retro products.

If you couldn’t get to a pool this was the next best thing.

How many America’s Funniest Home Video’s were made possible with Slip-n-Slide blunders?

This was one of my favorites. Who doesn’t love Snoopy or Sno-Cones?

Which product did you stay cool with in the summer?

Pop Goes the Otter

Written by Suzanne on July 23, 2010 – 8:27 pm -

Eating fresh cut watermelon, the smell of charcoal burning, drinking out of a big glass bottle of Coca Cola, sliding on a  Slip-n-Slide and bringing out the brightly colored box of Otter Pops to all my friends. That was summertime in the 70’s.

It was great fun deciding which Otter Pop to choose. There was Alexander the Grape, Little Orphan Orange, Sir Isaac Lime, Louie-Bloo Raspberry, Strawberry Short Kook, and Poncho Punch. Those fun frozen treats are still sold today and they have a fun cool website for the kiddos. Click here to check it out.

Looks like Otter Pops aren’t just refreshing and fun to eat, they’re also a source of creative inspiration.

It’s officially Summertime!

I’ve been singing along with the classic Mungo Jerry tune. I think you might know it. Check out this video compilation by Mark Viscel. It’s a fun mix of old and new footage:
