This ’80s toy catalogue is a nostalgic time capsule and take us back

Retro toy catalogue

All the things we’ve ever wanted to play with (or DID play with) are bundled up in a brilliant 1989 toy catalogue … and we’re feeling weirdly emotional about seeing them again.

The catalogue was unearthed and shared by a vintage enthusiast … and now it’s going a wee bit viral as everyone ponders childhood before iPads and wishes they had a Glowworm to play with. Sigh.

Game Boys and make up

Li'l Miss Makeup shared the catalogue cover with Nintendo's uber popular Game Boy and would it be wrong to want BOTH for Christmas THIS year?!
