Blast from the Past

Oh yeah – give me some classic Football.  This is another one of mom’s cherished childhood games.  Can you believe that daddy actually had one as well?  He doesn’t know where his went – but leave it to my mommy who.saves.EVERYTHING.  This game actually came out in 1977.  I think it’s a fossil now – snorts.

I checked this out on EBay.  They range from around $30.00 to $150.00 now new.  Can you believe that?  All of these ‘classics’  are making a come back.  Mommy didn’t even like football when she got hers as a child but she said she played the heck out of that thing!

Did you have one?

Blast from the Past

WOW – mom got all sentimental on this toy from her childhood.  The Little Professor was released in June 1976 from Texas Instruments.  It was marketed as the first electronic educational toy.  I think this is where mom found her fondness of math and to these day loves numbers.  So many people hate math but it’s really in the way it is presented.  I think by having fun with the Little Professor, mom started off with a fondness of math.   She got that far away look in her eyes and reminisced about being 7 and walking around the house ‘calculating’.  She got pretty good at it too!

I checked this item out on ebay as well.  It runs from around $25.00 and up.  Not a good turn around knowing that when it first came out in 1976, the price was $20.00.

Daddy never had one growing up – maybe that explains his dislike for math.  I wonder if it’s too late for this little piggy to start using it?

Did you have a Little Professor?  Do tell.

Blast from the Past

Another blast from the past – mom’s Glow Worm from childhood.  OMP (oh my piggy)!  How many of you had one of these things growing up?  Mom’s still works!  Do you know I looked at Ebay and they are selling for close to $50.00 now.  Can you believe that?  Whoever thought that a toy that resembled insect larvae and glowed through bioluminescence would ever be so popular?   And you know they were all girls because only adult worm girls glowed.  Did you know that?  Snorts.  Thank goodness mommy *never* throws anything away because they have ‘special’ memories for her.  Heck, who needed a night light back in the day when you this glow in the dark insect to take with you to bed?
