This is mind-boggling! I just surfed in, and am finding myself transported back to May of 1968. Here come de' Judge! Isn't it something how status symbols change over the years? When I was in the 4th grade in early '68, the one thing that a kid in my school would kill or die for was an oval STP sticker for his notebook (remember the turbine car?). But along about May, STP went out of style and Wacky-Packages were the new "in" thing. I covered the entire front of my notebook with 'em. Years later, when I met my wife, she had her "hope chest" covered with them.
Nowadays, kids think they have to hit up the old man for big bucks for some piece of Japanese electronic crap to be "in". Sad. They don't know what they missed.

Hey man! I am very happy that I discovered this site about Wackys! I thought they were long forgotten by everybody these days. I'm glad that a lot of people still remember them. I'm also amazed at the number of people that are collecting them too. The thing I am most amazed about though is the fact that they are coming back this June! Even though I'm not a kid (I'm 34) I will still buy them once in a great while starting this June. I'm currently trying to get "The Wacky Packages Gallery". Whew! Is that book hard to find! Finnaly my mom contacted Borders books for me and they said they could get it.

I used to walk 3 miles as a youngster in the early 70's, to the only grocery store in town that carried wacky packages. Man I loved those things, glad to see they are coming back for my kids to possibly enjoy.

When I read that TOPPS was bringing these back, I was so delighted. The great memeories of my elementary schools days all came back. Then I checked out your great website and shared a few laughs with my teenage daughter. That really made my day!
