This is so cool. I had no idea Suzy Homemaker was an actual line of household-appliance toys for girls. I thought it was just a nickname for housewives. I like the oven that bakes, a la Easy Bake Ovens, and the kid blender that blends (woo! kid margaritas!), but you know, as a kid I had absolutely no desire for an "iron that irons." I tried to stay away from ironing, thankyewvery much.
You have to watch this Suzy Homemaker promo video, though, if only for the spooky looking guy who suddenly shows up and starts talking in a weird deep voice about a doll named "Smartypants." The doll is actually kind of cool, but the ad for her reminds me of a horror movie, what between the weird guy's head looming, the talking doll, and the whispering woman who shows up and hisses, "Smartypants...she's more than a doll...SHE'S YOUR FRIEND!"
Yeah lady, and so was Chucky, and we all know how that turned out.
