Who didn’t love Mattel’s Krusher

What a toy! Krusher was an inflatable/deflatable toy from the late seventies that I inherited a few years after he was first released. I have since heard tell that these things were notorious for breaking, which I guess makes sense, but I never had an issue with my Krusher.

He worked perfectly until he found his way into the steely jaws of one our smaller dogs. It turns out that this monster was no match for 20 pounds of canine fury.
