1975 Mattel Putt-Putt Speedway Commercial

For a wind up type toy, the Putt-Putt Speedway was remarkably fast paced. My cousin and I would play it for hours, keep track of wins and losses on an old chalkboard while drinking iced tea and eating cookies. Great days.

    Awesome toy. I had hours of fun with this – but had completely forgotten all about it until today. Thanks for the memory!

  2. After all these years, I remembered that commercial verbatim. I remember when I first learned to drive, I’d sing the song when I got stuck in traffic.
