Every time I see a vintage Ideal Toy commercial for something I did not have I cannot help but think two things. Firstly, Ideal had some very creative toy makers and secondly, I want that toy! The ThunderStreak would have been a huge hit with my circle of friends. My one pal had a swimming pool that we just about lived in during the summer and we would have spent months coming up with ways to play with this fabulous toy.
Winter you need to end so I can find a vintage ThunderStreak and take it down to the local swimming hole.
