Theo and I were at Whole Earth a few days ago, and I let him wander around in the toy section. He quickly found the kid-sized shopping cart and filled it to overflowing.
Double Dare obstacle course or the Fun House, grabbing flags and tokens for prizes.
I used to think that it was terribly unfair that the rabbit in the commercials never got to eat Trix cereal, so in 1980 when they did a write-in campaign where you could vote on the issue, you better believe I sent in a box top checked 'yes'.
And finally, at the height of my New Kids on the Block mania, I got permission to set up a table in my junior high lunch room in order to get people to sign cards which I had hand written, saying they wanted the New Kids to come to our school. Whichever school sent in the most cards won a special concert. Or something like that. We didn't win.
If you want to waste a few minutes watching 1980s commercials, check this out. You can see a Toys R Us/Cap'n Crunch toy giveaway around 5:00 and I'm pretty sure my little sister had the popcorn Nosy Bear pictured at 8:25.
