Yes! It’s Super Toe!! Oh man, my brother and I would play with this thing all over the house. “I’m gonna angle it off the fridge and try to get it in the trash can” then…BANG on the head; missed the fridge knocked over the drying plates on the counter and broke the clock on the wall. What fun! I miss you Super Toe!!!!!

I got this thing in the late 70’s and would play with it for hours on end. That thing took a beating and never broke. As a matter of fact my wife and I were cleaning out the spare closet last weekend full of boxes we had no Idea what was in them. And guess what I found! My old Super toe it still works 30 years later. My wife made me put it up until I finished the closet .

This was a lot of fun. Great memories of playing with my older brother to see who could kick the longest field goal. My record was 80 yards, but not with the football – I hit Super Toe’s head so hard his kicking foot glanced the football, broke off and sailed through the goal posts! That was hilarious, but needless to say, the last of Super Toe! Anyway, it was surprising durable given the amount of abuse it took.

Wow!! They don't make em like that any more. I remember my brother getting one back in the mid 70's for Christmas when we lived in Canada.
My dad was keen to join us playing and after a few goes (he was determined to get the longest field goal) on Christmas day the head of supertoe refused to come back up. Oh dear. My dad felt so guilty all day long. The next shopping day he went out and bought us another one and left it to the kids.
Great memories and a great toy. i will have to find one to play with my young son. Right ebay lets have a look.

I remember getting Super Toe one Christmas, and my father really got into this toy. We were downstairs in the kitchen, we set up the goal post and started playing with it. We really had a lot of fun with it, my father was even sounding like an excited sports announcer every time Super Toe Kicked his field goal. This really brings back memories... What a great time in my life.

In all honesty, we used that toy until we were in high school. We got to the point where we’d try angle shots, raise the posts, bank shots – you name it. No video game – pure skill!!!
God bless the 1970’s!

I had Super Toe in the '70s. The thing I remember about him is that you could pound on his head just about as hard as
you could and couldn't break him. He could kick that little plastic football across my den, probably 10-15 feet if you pounded his
head hard enough. The goal posts were kind of flimsy plastic pipe sections but they didn't need to be that strong since Super Toe took
all of the pounding. Boys love to launch things, no matter what they are; rockets, planes, stunt cycles, cars, action figures, it
didn't matter and Super Toe gave my brother and me hours of fun. Launching a football across the room just never got old. Sometimes
we'd set him up at the top of the stairs and watch him fire the ball into the foyer below. As a kid who loved "all things football",
Super Toe is one of my fondest memories.

I had the Super toe as well. We had a great time with it. I think my hand is still
sore from smashing down on the head to set a new record. hahaha. Does anybody remember the Zonk
t-shirts? I think they were done in honor of Larry Czonka.

Another great toy! We had one and my bro and I played with it all of the time,thats why it only lasted about 2 weeks. I mean, how long can you pound on a piece of plastic with all your might? I could never understand why Super Toe could kick a 150 yard field goal one attempt and barely move the ball at all on others. I guess thats why he never made it to the big leagues.

I totally forgot about "Super Toe". I had one when I was a kid(I'm 41 now). I just recently saw it on an episode of "That's 70's Show". I was probably the one toy I played with the most. I don't know what ever happened to it. I couldn't even remember what it was called until I found this. I did about 20 different searches before I found it. Thanks

My brother & I got Super Toe on Christmas Eve. We made the mistake of taking it over to our aunt's house and started to play a game with our cousins. It became a game of who could kick the longest field goal. After attempting a 150 yard field goal, We broke something inside of Super Toe and he could only kick a 10 yard field goal. It may have been the earliest ACL tear of a kicker in history.
This christmas we got the new knock off Super Toe. I am pleased to say he has lasted longer than the one day that my original Super Toe lasted. It is great to see my 14 year old son playing this with his friends rather than video games or on the computer.

I think we had every toy made in the 1960's and 70's I recall my brother getting Super Toe around 1974 or 75. Him and his buddy would come over and play for hours with that thing. At first it was set to launch the hard plastic football from living room to kitchen. Next to kitchen doorway in living room is where the Christams tree was where the football more often than not wound up. Many a then vintage Christmas ornament passed onto my folk from there folk and even before fell victim to super Toe's punts. At Daddy's angry request super toe was aimed the other direction in the living room to punt his field goals. One field goal was through living room window and an another right into the picture tube of the t.v. Super Toe met the demise of the garbage can after that from my angry daddy having to replace a window and get a new t.v. I still have photos of my brother and his brother playing with it.

WOW, what a great memory. Super Toe, Talking Football and Joe Namath's Monday Night Football were my three most favorite toys from my youth. Super Toe rocked....

Our house in Kansas had a balcony in the upstair hallway. My brothers & I would set up Super Toe to kick across the living room, into the open cellar door and down the stairwell. This was a three man operation; one guy would kick, one guy was down in the basement verifying results and aiming instructions, and the third was to grab the ball in case we irrated Pop. We even brought him outside in the snow to create more dramatic game-winning kicks!

I loved super toe; I kicked down my hallway as well. I onced kicked a hundred yarder according to my super toe tape anyway.

I remember having a Super Toe. The footballs that came with it were made of pretty hard plastic and I ended up smashing a bunch of ornaments on the Christmas tree.
I also had the basketball set and the hockey set.

Just landed me a near mint condition Supertoe game on evil bay not long ago.Had one when I was a kid and love it.Too bad so many of those old toys of mine went the way of the wind.You know how boys are! Anyhow,the one I picked up didn't have the greatest box but everything else was 100% complete and basically unused.I was very fortunate and am very happy as you can imagine.

I remember kicking field goals down the hallway in the 70's with super toe. I was with my son at Target today and low and behold it was new modern version of super toe called Big Kick by Head Bangers. I shelled out the $19.95 and a half hour later and we were reliving my youth in the basement. He now has a directional foot and the ball are foam, but the still go a good 30 feet easy.

Ultimate Christmas toy. I got this and in no time was kicking the ball from the living room to the dining room. I was a kicker on our little pee-wee football team and for a while my role models were Garo Yepremian and Super Toe. Helped that my dad was a HS varsity football coach as well!
Awesome, awesome, awesome.

All-time great participation game! We played 6 kicks per quarter per player. Points varied with the distance. We'd set up targets beyond the goal posts for extra points. Double points for using your off hand! I still have the score sheets for some of those games! Still have a game opened and in working order. In the late 1980s I found three of the Super Toe games in a small variety store in Michigan UNOPENED IN THE ORIGINAL SEALED BOX! They'll make a nice codicil to my will!

Like many in the 70s, I spent hours with my SuperToe in the basement kicking long field goals on our shag green carpet! Me and my buddies would all take turns trying to see who could kick the longest field goal...we must have been kicking 20-25 footers by smashing his head hard with hammer fists!
To my amazment this past month, my mom pulls out SuperToe and surprised me...do you remember this. I was thrilled..he still works, but no football. I'm sharing my SuperToe memory with my 9 year old son..the age i was when SuperToe was my buddy during those long summer days!

This was a great toy however it could have been better made. I had the Super Jock. Can You say goooooaaaaallllll? Of course the head fell off after a month or so!

one of my FAVORITE toys! I remember playing for hours. I could kick 25-30 foot field goals!

I asked for a Super Toe Christmas '75. Instead, I got Super Stick- the hockey player. I hated it. Even the soccer player Super Kick would have been better. I hope I showed my "best-ever" parents the proper gratitude.

My memory of this game is short. I played with it for about an hour until my older brother came home. He wondered how far he could make it kick. He brought it into the middle of the street and smashed the head with all his might. Needless to say, the leg went further than the ball. End of Super Toe. I remember the other "athletes" as well, hockey, basketball, I think soccer too. Weren't they called Super Jock?

I'm probably only one of very few GIRLS that got a Super TOe - but I LOVED him. My dad played semi-pro ball when I was little so I loved anything football. I smashed the devil out of that things head - of course always aiming the ball at my brother. I think that same year I alos go a Balerina Barbie. Best Christmas EVER

Supertoe was a great toy, you could kick long field goals. Also you could change the goal post wide like college or put the goal post narrow and long like the pros. Also electric football was great. With the wide receivers that just went in circles. Great toys!

If you tilted the ball on Super Toes' stomach, you could easily hit 200 yarders. Mine eventually broke off at the knee.
Greatest Christmas Gift I ever got!!

Super Toe, china closet, opposite ends of a one room house; not even a consideration right? Wrong! Who knew Super Toe was occassionally capable of the equivalent of a 200 yard field goal with ferocious velocity. You know what I mean, evry once and while Super Toe could dig a little deeper. Longest half a second of my life, seemed like an eternity watching that little rock football end over end through the living rrom, then the make shift dining room. CRASH !!! Right through the glass, some dishes and I think a gravy boat. And of course,"No Mom, I dont know what happend". Good Times !

Christmas...1976-ish. Took Super Toe out of the box, set up the goal posts waaaay across the room, rolled out the measuring tape...parents looking on...brothers on other side of the room intent on blocking my attempt...I slammed down on Super Toe's head...and totally shanked it into the Christmas tree. Just missed my mom, shattered a couple of ornaments. Good times.
Also had Super Jock (basketball guy) and a hockey guy and a baseball guy, but I don't remember their names. I do remember that the baseball player had a big fat bat with one flat side on it. It was like half-paddle half-bat. You could really blast the ball if you ever got ahold of it...which was rare.
Talking about these toys today with friends is was got me searching and brought me to this site. Glad I got to share the stories when I got here...

Super Toe! I remember Christmas day playing with it in my cousins hallway. After I launch a sure field goal as hard as I could, in walks my Uncle(Picture an even more crotchity Archie Bunker). Wham! Right in the forehead.

With the roll of tape that came with it as a yard marker, I would see how long I could get one to go. The longest was close to 200 yards (my hand was very sore). Super Toe's leg could not stand up to the pressure and finally boke at the knee. No model glue or super glue with splints would hold it, so he retired in about 1976.

This does take one back. I got mine in the mid 70's and kicked many days away with this one. My friend and I wore several of these out seeing who could kick the longest field goal, and then who could kick the highest field goal up a set of stairs. It almost makes my hands sting and hurt thinking of it:)

Three things eventually broke with this guy: 1) the head of the super toe guy such that he would no longer kick 2) you "kicking" hand and 3) anything that rock hard football would smash in to.

Ahhh, Super Toe! What great memories. I was probably eight years old when I got mine for Xmas and it was one of the best gifts I ever received. Unfortunately, I broke poor Super Toe when I tried to make about a 70 yard (inch?) fieldgoal!

I had totally forgotten about Super Toe! I used to love to kick field goals with him in the hallway or kick a long field goal down the stairs...
Altough I do remember getting bored with him quickly.

I got SuperToe for X-Mas back in the 70s.It came with a long white tape you could affix with black stickers in "ten yard " increments.The football was hard as a rock.He could kick longer field goals than Tom Dempsey.I used it so often his kicking foot broke off at the knee.A tragic end to a great toy.

Me and my step brother had super toe and the baseball and basketball one in the mid 70's. I have Super Toe again, I got the whole thing off of Ebay for $25 about a year and a half ago. Sits on a shelf as a great memory and it works still. I took it to work and a lot of guys my age had fun playing with it on lunch. Until our boss walked in, turns out he liked it. He was older but near our age and remembered the toy and he hit a few across the table too.. hehehe.

i had both super jock and super toe. it's amazing as i go through this entire website how many toys i actually had! if i had all of them with their boxes i'd be rich!

WOW, WOW, WOW. I played with mine in the hall way, attempting field goals all day long!!! it was great, this is the first time I have seen a pic of it since the 70's...

How about "super Jock" same idea but you pushed his head and his arm would "shoot" a basket-ball. I still have him and the ball...no hoop though.

Oh my gosh! Now i'm really blown away.I remember playing with this toy for hours. It was much better than the thousands of little fold up footballs that my brothers and I would make out of a sheet of notebook paper. Remember doing that? I write each team name on one and we'd kick them with our fingers all over the livingroom until mom would go nuts. Super toe was the best though!
