  1. I don’t remember anything but Atari…maybe the rest are part of a cultural thing? :S

    shrinkydinks!!!!! those things were awesome. I used to make em all the time.

    Loved the LiteBrite’s too. My little cousins have the new version that is a cube and you can put lights on all sides.Needless to say my bro and I play with it every time we go home.

    good memories! i didn’t know that was called a cozy coupe, that’s actually hilarious.

    and if by “cultural thing” Thrice means the culture of people who didn’t live under rocks… then yes. they were cultural things.

  4. i definitely remember the lite brite! and a couple others. but the rest i don’t, probably mostly because you’re an old man. ha. 😉

    yeah patches is kind of old.

  6. HELL YEA!!! OMG I wanted a crocodile mile SO BAD.

  7. Thrice – Yea, these toys were probably only popular in the States…because in reality a lot of them are lame.

    “Courtney” Post #1- LiteBrite does not share your love
    Post #2 – NOT cool. Besides aren’t 80 year old men your thing?

    PiC – Post # 1 -No one else remembers Shrinky Dinks! They were so awesome. Well, not really. Everytime I describe them I’m confused about why I loved them so much.
    Post # 2 – You are the same age as me. We shouldn discuss that too much or Courtney will get all riled up as she dreams of a threesome with us.

    Shorty – Cozy Coupes rocked. And She’s from Argentina so they don’t get all our awesome American toys :p

    Bloggy – I feel bad for your childhood. If you did not have a Crocodile Mile, you never really lived.
