Those toys from your childhood…

Does anyone remember a toy they owned in their childhood which when they see one brings back such powerful memories?

Well mine is pictured at left. It’s called a Lil Genius and was made by Coleco around 1980. I had one of these at Junior School – it was like a calculator, but not quite… you had to type in the entire sum and it would tell you if you got the answer right or wrong by flashing either the left (green) eye or the right (red) eye… ah the joys of no LCD or Vacuum tube displays… just a couple of light emitting diodes to tell you everything!

Ah the 80’s were good.
