              I remember those pens with clocks, there were also some musical ones as well.

                Many thanks for the uploads Heather - it has brought a lot of memories back .


                I had the Chemistry 5 set (not 4 as in the picture) but it was styled exactly the same, the Tonka truck (before they turned plastic), the Ghostbusters figures, car and the Ghostbusters ghost zapper (a projector), and Lights Alive.

                  If Maoam sweets were criticized for showing 'pornographic fruit' on there wrappers recently, then 'What was the guy on item no.105 doing?!!

                      Does anyone remember a Green Shields Stamps catalogue showing a family on the front cover reading a Green Shields Stamps Catalogue... with the same picture on the front of themselves reading the Green Shields Stamps Catalogue with the same picture on the front, of themsleves reading the same Green Shields Stamps catalogue with the same picture etc etc.

                      It kind of drew your eyes into a vortex.

                      How the hell did they pull that off with 1970s graphics?!

                        I've seen that sort of thing before, & it used to confuse me when I was young.

                          I can't believe the price of the Texas 'Speak & Spell' 29.95, and that was discounted! No wonder I never got one at that price eek! I did however get a 'Little Professor', which was priced at 9.95 a little more affordable back then.

                            Many thanks for this thread, as a child I spent many hours drooling over the toys section.

                              Brings back so many memories of some of the toys me and my mates had.My fav all time toy was the 3-D Tomytromic skyattack game.Played on that for ages.Must of been around the early 80's.Shocked to see it cost more then my first wage packet in 1983,so father really must of put in a lot of hours and spent money we really did not have at that time to buy one for christmas.Can't believe I took home 16.50p for 40 hours in 1983,and dad paid 19.00 for that a few years earlier.Really shocked.We never really seemed to have had a lot of spare money so that comes as a real surprise.

                                Next time you see your Dad give him a hug for that one....Theres things my Father did for me I think about now and again and wish I could give him a cuddle but can't anymore as he died recently. I'm a bloke and don't give to hoot about hugging parents-Lord knows I could do with their support these days.
