1970 included kids play things produced following the United States successful moon landing in 1969, we have shown just 3 here including the lunar landing module. The year also featured a good example of the changes in music playing devices with a basic stereo player looking like something held over from earlier years and the new style component music systems. Board games include the game of risk which was popular in the 70s. The ever popular Hot Wheels cars and tracks and no year is complete without a few Barbies. Traditional guns, holsters, rifles to compete against the new Robots which improve each year. The Viewmasters range improve with the addition of the new talking version. This page has been created in late August as current university students are starting University with Laptops, Smart phones and the latest tablets and I find it interesting that for students heading off to University in 1970 the latest technology was a portable typewriter.
