Army Ants

This is another toy that I never owned (and to be honest don’t think was ever that popular) but now nearly 30 years later (Oh yeah, these came out in 1987) I can still remember most of the jingle in the commercial. Hasbro believed they had re-invented the classic Green Army Men toys with the development of Army Ants but they failed to garner any real following and production was halted shortly after. Army Ants may have lost the war but they won…well…nothing. Nope, these were just terrible toys with a somewhat catchy jingle.
