Man, I wanted these so bad when I was a kid. I would buy comics and stare at the joke/ gimmick ads for days. The comics always had these strange sea-monkeys. I was captivated. "Wow, I could have my own strange family of little sea creatures!". Little did I know that these sea-monkeys looked nothing like the drawings. I was so bummed when my hard earned cash was wasted on crummy brine shrimp.
The sea-monkey family is now available as a toy set. I just had to buy the family set for nastalgic reasons.
Now I have my own sea-monkeys....and they look just like the ad.
