Way back in 1973 I was 5 years old and WACKY PACKAGES were a huge hit with my sister and I! For 15 cents a pack, we would laugh at these spoofs on common household products. Despite not getting a lot of the jokes (we do now) we would collect, trade and even fight over them... so much there was a time when our parents wouldn't buy them for us anymore.
For Christmas I got another awesome book from Abrams Publishing celebrating the first (and best) years of WACKY PACKAGES... which for some strange reason, we referred to as WACKY STICKERS! Like ths MARS ATTACKS, STAR TREK and STAR WARS books that go through the best of the Topps series, this book brought back the sights, smells and beatings I took due to WACKY PACKAGES!
