    Anyone Remember...

    "Fabulous Fred"? I still have this toy at my Mom's place.  It has great sentimental value to me, since it was an infamous impulse buy from my parents to me during the holiday season one year!

    Holy Crap!

    My sister had the calculator that is this group's logo!  Such cool memories!  My speak and spell was my favorite present of all my childhood.  I spend hours on that thing!

    Football

    The one that stuck out the most in my mind was that little football game that was nothing more than some blinking lights on a painted makeshift field. I remember my friend having one of those and I wanted one of my own so badly but they were far too expensive to even be...
