20 Poochie Toys And Accessories That Will Make You Flash Back To Your Childhood

- Page 1

Some toys manage to gain such a huge following that looking back, seems a bit excessive. For example, we all had to own a yo-yo, but why? Its just a piece of plastic on a string. Or the mayhem that surrounded Cabbage Patch Kids, they were just dolls right? Wrong. They were an icon of society.

Another one of those toys that we all became inexplicably obsessed with was Poochie. What's a Poochie? Well obviously it was only one of the very best toys in all the world! If you grew up in the 80s, then you will absolutely remember seeing the commercials all over the TV. If you were lucky, you probably had a bunch of different Poochie products all over your house.

How many of these Poochie items do you remember begging your parents for?

1. Poochie AM Radio

Because you know what kids love? AM radio.

2. Poochie Pencil Set

The size of this packaging seems very excessive for the product inside...

3. Poochie Notebooks

I mean, where else are you going to use those pencils?

4. Poochie Paper Doll

Paper dolls were easily one of the greatest things we had back in the day. It was surprisingly fun to just gently set paper on top of other paper. It sounds silly, but I swear it was fun!

5. Poochie Story Books

You can't have the toy without a story book to read while you cuddle it. That would just be unreasonable!

6. Poochie Secret Flower Note Maker

This was a little more complicated. You had a flower maker and then would press it down and hide little secret notes in it. Because handing someone a flower is much more discrete then handing them a note.

7. Poochie 'Overnighter' Case

Perfect for a sleepover if all you wanted to bring was your Poochie doll because it is only 6" big.

8. Poochie Stamper Paws

You get to make a little stamp out of your smaller version of your favorite dog, marking up all those lovely pieces of art you were making.

But those aren't the only crazy items based on Poochie you could get. Honestly, they just kept getting stranger...
