    Does anyone remember these foam toys (from the late 70's/early 80's I believe)...They might have been Nerf, but I don't think Nerf goes back that far....They were like elongated marshmallows that you'd squeeze inbetween your fingers and they'd make a popping sound and fly across the room.

    I think they later made a 'gun' that would shoot them. I see Nerf makes these new guns with Nerf 'bullets' but these were a bit different...

    I know what you are talking about. I had some. But can't remember the name.

    Ah, then perhaps it was a Nerf product.

    IIRC, they came in two colors - light blue and orange.

    Finger Pops! If I knew how to post pictures, I'd put up some from a 1979 TV commercial for them.

    Oh, p.s. Don't go searching for just "Finger Pops" because you'll get a lot of middle finger hits [​IMG]

    EDIT: I finally found ONE photo of them! It's a guy, in a barrage of finger pops!
