Anyway, today I'm linking up with the hot ginge (real name: Beth) for Flashback Friday. We were getting super excited talking about this post idea earlier this week, so hopefully you enjoy this flashback as much as we did. Although, I have to admit, her FF post today is hands down the funniest thing I've read in a LONG TIME. You have to go read hers here.
I'm flashing back to old school girly electronic games from the late 80s to mid 90s. You know, the ones you HAD to have or your life would have been OVER. I'm talking ...
TALKBACK DEAR DIARY.
1. Dream Phone, my favorite of the bunch. To play, you'd draw a photo card and dial the number on it using the hot pink Dream Phone. The boys you called would give you clues, which you used to figure out who had a crush on you. When you thought you knew who your crush was, you'd call his number on his card and if you were right he'd say, "You're right, I really like you!" So legit.
Steve was the hottest of them all and don't try to convince me otherwise. Helloooooo Steve ...
The clues were like, "he’s not wearing yellow," or "he’ll eat anything except popcorn". And then of course there was the annoying, “I know who it is, but I’m not telling!” Oh, dream phone. I loved you.
2. "It's Mall Madness, the mall with it all!" The object of the game was to be the first player to scoop up the items on your shopping list at the best prices and get back to your parking lot. You had to be on alert for exciting announcements like, "Attention mall shoppers! There is a sale at the fashion boutique!"
I mean, maybe this was the game that started my bargain fascination?
Apparently there’s now a Hannah Montana version. I don't know why people try to mess with a good thing.
3. Ask Zandar, the talking wizard. You'd ask Zandar a question, wave your hand over the "crystal ball" and he'd give you you an answer. Clearly what Zandar spoke was truth. "Zandar, am I going to prom with a geek, please say no!" "There's an excellent chance!" Pure devastation.
4. Dear Diary, the electronic diary. "Hands off creep!" I know I had one of these, but I remember it not being nearly as cool as it seemed in the commercials.
Did you play these games? Which was your fave? I loved this little trip down memory lane. Have a great weekend you little bargainistas! TGIF.
