Totin’ Turtle

Okay, let me just get this straight, Totin’ Turtle is not a real turtle. It is a toy, but it can crawl and swim without batteries??? What sort of primitive wizardry is this? How can one emulate the power of movement without the primordial spark of electricity granted by a poorly insulated compartment of D cell batteries? It is impossible I say and is surely witchcraft. So I say take your mechanized shelled wonder out of my tub and be gone with you!


As a kid, I did not understand how Totin’ Turtle worked, but I still loved him (even if he was powered by dark magic).
