When You Were a Kid, What Did You Want For Christmas?

Time to show your age!

I remember as a kid every year I wanted a keyboard or a walkman. Then I wanted the two cassette style boombox that would let me make my own mix tapes. There was always some pipe dream about combining a keyboard with the dual cassette deck radio and some cheap mic and turning myself into a star

I also wanted a pogo ball, those were awesome

Re: When You Were a Kid, What Did You Want For Christmas?

I used to flip through the old Sears Christmas catalogue, it was amazing just to go through all the pages of toys. My dad would laugh at me for asking for stuff that was was out of our means. But the enjoyment of simply going through that magazine and drifting into fantasy land was always fun

Re: When You Were a Kid, What Did You Want For Christmas?

I can't remember everything I wanted. Honestly, like you said, going through the different store catalogs was such a fun tradition that I'm said to see it go away. Circling and initialing things. Going back and reviewing to be sure. By Christmas I had probably forgotten 75% of what I marked.

There is a site (might be more) that has some of the older Christmas/Wishbooks uploaded. http://www.wishbookweb.com/the-catalogs/ It's definitely a time warp.

I remember always wanting the team lockers/storage bins and jersey sets. Anything with Michael Jordan. Hot Wheels and Micro Machines. Any action figure that was related to Batman, Star Wars, or Power Rangers. Then of course the typical stuff like a bike, roller blades, skateboard, etc.

Re: When You Were a Kid, What Did You Want For Christmas?

Man, I can remember going through the jcp penny catalog and circling everything I wanted. Around 1985, I was on a big transformers kick and got a lot that year. The next year I got my original NES, one year I got my gameboy and a few years later my SNES. Always great memories!

Star Wars and micro-machines were huge for me when I was growing up. Later on I built military models with my Dad.

Always wanted sports jerseys. Didn’t even care which team or player.
