    With my luck, this has already been posted somewhere else.

    If not, I present to you WishbookWeb.com.

    There you will find scans of department store catalogs from 1940 to 1986.

    Some goodies from the 1979 Sears Catalog:

    Big Trax!!

    Vintage Star Wars (w/ rocket-firing Boba Fett)

    Quiz Wiz

    NFL Clothes

    Enjoy digging around! Lots of memories buried there.

    Holy crap! I remember Big Trax. My brother had one. I had just about all of that Star Wars crap, the Quiz Whiz and that thing that looks like a red phone, though I can't remember what it was called.

    Couple years ago, I bought a Coleco hand-held game system designed for TVs. It was like $20, so I thought what the hell.

    For the most part, it sat in my entertainment center until my 4-year-old discovered it.

    Now he's starting to play some of the same games I played growing up.

    One day, I will show him NHL95, and we may never leave the house.

    You mean, Mitch Albom's tall tales don't have the same soothing effect?

    Quiz Whiz!!! I've spent years wondering what that game was called!

    I remember I was sick the day before my birthday when I was in second or third grade...stayed home from school. Woke up the next day feeling better, opened my presents and got Quiz Whiz. My mom says "well, you look better today, maybe you should go to school." I was like "No, I think I need another day, I'm really tired." All I wanted to do was play Quiz Whiz.

    She let me stay home. And I played Quiz Whiz!
