my wizzer

When I was just a really young guy….when we still lived in California….I had a couple of these toys.

They were pretty popular…in the days before “clackers”.

One of the neat things about this particular toy is that the man who invented the Wizzer lived down the road from us.

We went over to his house to meet him…..and he signed all of our Wizzers.

How many kids can say that a man signed their Wizzer?

This was in the days before San Jose became part of “Silicon Valley”.

It was in the days when San Jose was primarily known for all the Wizzers that were located there.

It was kind of a Wizzer capital.

That’s a big deal for a kid….to meet the man who invented a cool toy.

My Wizzer.

I wonder whatever happened to my Wizzer?
