  • Kenya Doll by Tyco ~ Adverts [1990’s]
    "The beautiful hairstyling doll."
    These Kenya doll adverts by Tyco are from 1992-95.
  • Fist Faces – Remco [1960’s]
    "Your fist becomes a real face."
    I came across this little game yesterday. Produced by Remco in 1966, the box consisted of very little: four plastic nose-eye combos, a bit of fur, an old rag and a pen - "for hours of play and fun". Well, it's better than a punch in the face, I guess.
  • Tron ~ See Hear Read [1982]
    "This is the story of Tron. You can read along with me in your book. You will know it is time to turn the page when you hear the computer sound like this..."
