Dangerous Toys From Our Childhood- Sit ‘N Spin
It seems that during the 70’s and 80’s anything could fly as a toy. The Sit ‘N Spin was produced during that time, and that’s why it’s another Dangerous Toy From Our Childhood.
Sit ‘n Spin was a popular toy of the 1970s and 1980s. It came in a bunch of visual designs however all were multicolored (using some or all of the primary colors red, green, yellow, blue).
It had a large circular two-part plastic base. One part is in contact with the ground, and is connected to a smaller concentric plastic disk above it. The other part of the base, another concentric circle, is free to spin about the axis. A child sits on this part of the base, cross-legged and straddling the pole, and turns the disk, spinning the child in the other direction.
As our friends at Guyism.com have said: It’s a personalized merry-go-round with all of the fun side effects: vomiting, insane dizziness, vertigo, massive head trama and more vomiting. Yes parents allowed you to sit and spin around in circles for fun!
