Gung Ho Toys of Yesterday are the Politically Incorrect Toys of Today

Gung Ho Toys

The toys of yesterday are banned for the children of today.

There’s no way you’d ever see the Gung Ho Commando Outfit on any playground today. Check out the whole Gung Ho Toys product line in this vintage video about some badass kids.

Times are changing in the current politically incorrect climate. When the mere image of a gun fosters fear among the masses, vintage toys such as Gung Ho Toys will never again see the light of day.

This vintage video features children playing with Gung Ho Toys, a toy line that once manufactured everything from realistic machine guns and handguns to helmets and canteens. The young soldier could take on all foes on the imaginary battlefield.

While Pokemon Go is now the exercise of choice for many of today’s youth, we can reflect on this video and recall simpler times.
