Reader Susan Thomas was out antiquing and stumbled across what may be our favorite toy of all time -- the anatomically correct "Archie Bunker's Grandson" doll:

We can't decide what we love most about it:

1. The fact that it was made by Ideal Toy, the same company that gave the world the first teddy bear.

2. The fact that it's actually pretty valuable, going for around $75. (There are a few on eBay if you're interested.)

3. The fact that it was the very first American doll to feature a teeny weenie. What's more, it was functional! If explicit pics of plastic doll parts are your thing... well.. fine, click here.
