Milky The Marvelous Milking Cow (Kenner)
Milky The Marvelous Milking Cow
Kenner made some really weird toys in the 1970's. We looked at the nightmarish Hugo last week, and this week I fear things only get stranger.
Meet Milky, the Marvelous Milking Cow.
By pumping her tail, feed Milky real water, and when she's done, she'll raise her head and moo. That's the signal that she''s ready to produce fake milk, which you can extract from her rubber utters. The milk substance, which may or may not have been safe to drink, was produced by putting special tablets insider her utter prior to "feeding" the toy water. The toy was rounded out with a plastic farm mat, a cowbell for her neck, a trough to fill with the water and a booklet on how cows produce milk.
As you can imagine, long term play value definitely doesn't exist with this toy, and interest waned fairly quickly from the public. Despite this, toy aficionados have been known to spend as much as one hundred fifty dollars on a complete in box Milky these days.
Kudos to Kenner for yet another bizarre toy from the past.
