I enjoyed looking at the fisher price garage...until a popup ad snapped me out of it.

I was always trying to get my friends to play "iottle people" with me even though they were pretty sick of it.

and even though it`s about 33 years since i last played with one, I can remember the clicking sound that elevator used to make whenever you tried to squash a car underneath it like it was just yesterday.

cajun a few of these that originated in the nineties.

including: 7, 16, 33, 45, and 46. plus most of them spilled over. Thats why late `80s and `90s kids like myself probably get the most joy from this list.

That Mattel hand-held football game was probably my favorite thing ever as a kid - beep. beep. beep. beep. beeebeeebeeebeeebeeebeebeeeee!!!

Loved loved loved Simon and and they forgot Merlin and Allstar baseball. I was never allowed to have "real" video games like Atari or Intellivision because my dad was convinced they would ruin the TV.

I only saw a couple because The Chive keeps causing IE to abort the loading operation (oh yeah, and then it spammed the hell outta me by continuosly spawning blank pages)
But anyway, wasn`t born until late `86 so some of these were a little too early, but thanks for the memories. Anyone notice how huge Mario`s pupils were on that Super Mario 2 picture?

Kind of all over the place. Some of those things I had as a child, but there are quite a few that didn`t exist until I was an adult. I had a View Master (they were pretty cool) in 1972 when I was six, but I don`t remember seeing a Koosh ball before I was in my 20`s.

They still make Squirt. I still drink it. Not sure how it`s supposed to take me back to my childhood.

Hmmm. I think this post officially makes me a grumpy old man.
