Vintage Toys- Stretch Armstrong

Alex Beattie/Wikipedia

Even though Stretch Armstrong came out in 1976, it was a really popular toy in the 1980’s. Do you remember him? It was what every kid needed, a large gel-filled action figure who had great muscles.

The original 1970s Stretch is very collectable now and commands high prices on the secondary collectors’ market, selling for hundreds, even thousands of dollars. However, finding one in mint condition is hard. There are still Original Stretch Armstrongs that have survived the passing of time and are remarkably preserved through sheer luck or being stored at the correct temperature. The figure keeps best at room temperature so thirty years later, collectors are still using Stretch.”

Did you ever wonder how Stretch could stretch?

Stretch Armstrong is made of latex rubber filled with gelled corn syrup, which allows it to retain shape for a short time before shrinking to its original shape.”
