“We had a Stretch Armstrong gap!”

It’s ok Pete, even if you had a Stretch Armstrong, you’d eventually experience a Stretch Armstrong gap. He’s filled with corn syrup!

(I had a ‘90s era mini Fetch Armstrong. I was so so careful with him, especially after my brother’s Stretch developed the dreaded gap, but poor Fetch eventually succumbed as well.)

Damn, mini Fetch Armstrong was around $6 new, now *fetches* (yup, went for it) over $100, sometimes $150 on eBay. That’s LEGO levels of appreciation, don’t see that much with most ‘90s toys (our parents were too aware of how collectible everything was, making those collectibles worthless in the long run).

My mom worked at the company that filled those toys with corn syrup.
