Yes, it’s true: there is now a book devoted to the “best toys, tastes, and trends of the ‘70s and ‘80s.” ‘Tis a small compendium of the things that shaped Gen X, but it packs a large punch.
If you ever drooled over the Sears Wish Book, lived for Love Boat and Fantasy Island, or spent hours playing with your Dawn Dolls, this mini-encyclopedia is for you. While it is not extensive, the volume covers lots of great lost stuff of the seventies and eighties, including Trapper Keepers, Laff-A-Lympics, and Dixie Riddle Cups.
Gosh, life was good back then, wasn’t it?!
