Gifts & Gimmicks ~ Adverts [1980’s]

The back of Boys’ Live magazine advertised everything from an ALF fan club membership and Nintendo strategy play book, to garlic bubble gum and windshield wiper glasses. You could also buy your own official nickname, a fetching pair of leather fingerless gloves, and a ventriloquists dummy which looks a bit like Sloth from The Goonies.

I found these adverts in a couple of 1988 editions (I picked my favourites), but many of these items were around years before and for years to come. It would seem that fake dog mess transcends all generations.
