Wasn't that the Earth Shoe? Oddly enough, it was actually invented in 1957 and the Earth Shoe Company "discovered" the older technology. Oddly enough again, someone brought it back in 2001. Hey if old stuff comes back without much fuss, maybe I can get my figure back. 😊

I did. It usually turned into an event with everyone comparing colors and even trying to change their mood to see if the ring changed color. Not junior nor high school. I was a bit older. Thanks.
