In 1965 Kenner issued the weird and wonderful Daddy Saddle. Advertised as "a new way to add fun to kids' favorite horsie... daddy!" With authentic western tooling and design, the saddle was made from cushioning 'kennerflex' (whatever that means), made to fit daddies of all sizes. Part of the blurb on the packaging read "Giddyeup ole’ Daddy! For hours of the most exciting fun any child and parent ever had playing together."
Kenner Products was founded in 1947, and was closed in 2000 by its parent company Hasbro. In it's time Kenner produced some of the all time classic toys of childhood. Among them is the Easy-Bake Oven (1963), and Spirograph (1966). Kenner also produced some of the most beloved action figures of the 70s and 80s. They made the Six Million Dollar Man (1981), and the Star Wars figures form the first trilogy from 1976 to 1985.
The company also manufactured the cuddle Care Bear range of plush toys from 1983, and the original Play-Doh first released in 1956. Yet the Daddy Saddle must be one of the weirdest items ever to come from the Kenner Products range.
