Blast From the Past

For some complete unknown reason, today I had been thinking about 2 of the biggest toy crazes in the past 10 years.

Hands up who remembers Tamgotchi and Furby?

For fear of sounding extremely sad no matter how old I get they are still so cool, as cool as I thought they were back in 1997.

There is something so very odd about the way things you found fantastic in childhood never ever become sad if you wanted them as a child. Other people's nostalgic toy crazes often are the saddest of sad but yours will eternally be cool.

I was hoping to have some new work or at least some progress photos to share with you by now but my time and energy seem to be being sucked away by the never ending flu.

Instead I shall leave you with my eternally cool toy crazes from 1997 and 1998:

Why don't you tell me what your toy crazes were when you were a kid?

Dude, I still have a tomogatchi. Furbies creep me the heck out now. But I do remember the Sailor Moon craze. Sheesh, I rode that thing for ever!
