The Atari 2600

THE BEST Video Game console EVER!!!!

Lego Space Sets

The Legos I had as a kid!

Some of the toys that Sean grew up with are pictured above. Sean had many hand held electronic toys growing up as well.(Hit & Missle, Star Wars Laser Battle Game, various Head to Head Coleco Sports games(Basketball, Football & Hockey).

With only one income in the household(his father, Ted), Sean had to complete chores & pick up odd jobs here and there in order to have the toys that he wanted. Everything from feeding the dog, taking out the trash, vacuuming the house, mowing grass, shoveling driveways and sidewalks in the wintertime when it snowed, having a paper route (throwing The Citizen Journal), washing cars, finding and collecting aluminum cans and returning soda pop bottles.

If it happened in the 70s & 80s, Sean was well aware of it (thankfully) because of JCPenney’s Catalog & network television!!
