Here I am all geeked out over a toy that Brett got for his birthday.
I was trying to explain this toy to my kids over the summer.
It went something like this. "We didn't have video or DVD. This was before the Cartoon Network and Disney channel. There were only four T.V. stations but some days UHF came in pretty good and that might have been another two channels but they were very fuzzy. We had a toy that you held up to a light and when you turned the handle you could watch a scene from a movie. You could go as fast as you wanted or as slow. You could even go forward and reverse."
"We only had a couple of movies but we would watch them again and again. Chad would stick them in backwards and then it was hard to get them out. Between the Movie Viewer and View Master we had plenty for our viewing pleasure."
The kids had a hard time visualizing this. So here is a slide of the awesome toy.
I can only remember a couple of movies that we had, The Lonesome Ghost and Bear Trouble.
Brothers do you remember any more?
I remember watching one about the future Space Shuttle but we didn't own it.
Brett had a cool phone that was making me make this face over the weekend.
I see cousins Rhonda, Steve, the back of Chad's head and I am thinking that that is Sondra's nose in the bottom right corner.
