Jaws

Jaws! RUUUNNNN!

The Jaws game was the opposite of Buckaroo. In Buckaroo you had to place items onto a donkeys saddle. Place too many on and the donkey will kick out and throw all the items off.

In Jaws, however, you had to remove items from Jaws mouth. Take the wrong thing and he’d actually snap shut, often severing your limbs.

Items included all manner of sea debris, like spare tyres, boots, an anchor and a section of a ships wheel.

I received this toy when I was about 5 or 6 and for the few months after getting it I continually had bruised fingers. Jaws wasn’t lethal, but it certainly had the power to cause crushed fingers!

I never knew anyone else who had one of these and, because Jaws was stored miles away at my Grandads house, I never got chance to show it to any of my friends either.

Good game, but brutal!
