Stretch Armstrong is an action figure shaped as a short, muscular, man with blond hair wearing black trunks. The doll's most notable feature was that it could be stretched from its original size of about 15 in (0. 38 m) to 4 to 5 ft (1. 2 to 1. 5 m). If a tear did develop, it could be fixed with an adhesive bandage. Information on how to repair Stretch was provided in the toy's instruction booklet that was originally inside his box. Also in 2019, they had mini stretch Armstrongs and they were made from Character and flair in the UK.
