Retrocrush - Retro Culture From The 70's - 90's

Retrocrush has long been one of my favorite websites, covering retro culture from the 70's - 90's with humor, yet always with a sense of fondness, rather than the snarkiness you find with other similar websites. They also have a fun podcast, now numbering around 130 episodes. If you were born in the 60's or 70's I highly recommend checking it out. In any case, the latest site update added a piece about poor/gimmicky toys of the past, appropriate at this time of year when many people, especially with kids, have loads of toys floating around the house. Santa gave me a Magic 8-Ball this year, something I always wanted as a kid, but never got until this year. This is among 20 or so toys covered in the article - they've even linked to YouTube clips of some retro commercials.
