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!
