As a child we all use to watch Saturday morning cartoons. In the middle of our favorite programming were A.D.D. induced sales pitches for toys. After these commercials aired the kids response to the products were “gimme gimme gimme” or “mine mine mine.” How could they resist! After looking back and researching I was also brought back to the “gimme gimme, mine mine” days. So here is your list! An homage to all the toys you may have wanted. I also urge you to find some of these toys today! I think the lucky bastards that got them are still holding on to them!
