Remember when this blog used to be about fun stuff and awesome 80s toys? Remember before my life got super serious and introspective? Remember when I was a different person? Young and carefree? Yeah, that.
Well I found these old school walkie talkies at the thrift store. I had every intention of flipping them for a few extra bucks on eBay, but I also knew there was no chance of it happening. Because look at them. When you think of 1980s toys, you think of the major touchstones in popular culture. You’re not remembering the generic crappy day to day toys that made up the actual bulk of your toy box, your life. I think I had these exact walkie talkies. I think it’s possible that every kid on the planet once had these exact walkie talkies.
Every aspect of them was somehow perfect. Let’s take a closer look.
