Exactly like the one in the 70's. Cool toy.
Exactly like the one I had as a kid in the 70's. Bought this for my 8 yr old. Yeah right. lol I'm 49 years old and loving this all over again. Thanks AlumiGogo.

Stretch Armstrong is Back!
Just like the classic Stretch I had as a kid. My boys (age 12 and 5) love it, although it is a little hard for younger kids to stretch. But it is super durable and not made out of cheap, thin material.

Stretch REALLY is back!
I was tempted to give this 4 stars, but it might not deserve one less. This was probably my favorite childhood toy and I've been looking for another since the re-release/remake in the 90's also disappeared (I had one of those too). When I saw they've released this one, I ordered immediately!
Anyway, the reason for the possible 4 star? He doesn't seem as soft and pliable and stretchy as he was in the 70's. And that could be for 2 reasons; either he actually isn't because they're using more durable rubber as the original one did want to begin to show wear and "cracks" after a while. Or it's just me. After all, I was probably 7 when I owned this so memory might not be completely vivid! Either way, it's wonderful to have him back!
Now if they ever release the original stretch monster again? I'll buy 3 of those! He was actually my favorite one! Please bring back the monster!
If you loved Stretch as a kid, or never even saw one, you'll love this toy. Simple and fun to play with!

Just as I remember him!
I had several Stretch Armstrongs as a kid. This is exactly as I remember him. Very well made and a nice retro box. I hope they will make the Stretch Monster.

Made like toys used to be made
Sturdy, seems unbreakable and weight a good bit as well, this should hold up to a long time of abuse

This thing was great. If my kid hadn't punctured it the first day on purpose with scissors it would still be like new. :-) Put gorilla tape over it and it is still functioning. I believe we have had it 3 months.

I thought this retro gift request was rather dumb...but the grandkids love him...so it's a winner...

I bought this for my 9 year old who was over the moon when he got it. It was actually bigger than I expected and it stretches great. My son said he was a little disappointed that the head wasn't stretchy, lol, but other than that he's been carrying it with him everywhere.
