The Sunshine Family were devised in the mid seventies by Mattel and seem to be grown up hippies now starting young families. The large eyes on these figures used to give me nightmares.
Much of the play is centered around crafts and is very early seventies The family owns a hobby store and later on they would create what looked like a commune. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see the Sunshine family abandon their values and become yuppies in the eighties as the line was cancelled in 1978. Mattel regrettably recycled their rather doll simple bodies into lines such as Space:1999, Welcome Back Kotter and Mork and Mindy.
