I was a bit of a tomboy as a child and have fond memories of playing with Stretch Armstrong to see how far you could stretch him.
Now the original Stretch Armstrong is back and can be stretched up to 4 times his size before returning to his original shape when he is released.
Not ones to shy away from a challenge, my family has been busy pulling poor Stretch in all sorts of directions to see how far he will stretch. The kids have pulled him, stretched him and even tied him in knots and he still looks as good as new!
Strongman Stretch Armstrong has a solid plastic head whilst the rest of his body is made from a stretch rubber type material which feels a but like a stress ball to touch. You don’t have to stretch him, you can also put him into funny positions, tie him in a knot, mould him into funny shapes or just squish him in your hands. Don’t hit him though as it still hurts your hands if punched.
I am sure that the Stretch Armstrong I played with as a child stretched farther, however it could just be that I am taller now so it seems shorter. He is quite heavy too and therefore aimed at children aged 5 and over.
