    What an awesome home movie clip. Makes me wish more than anything to be a kid again back in the early 80s getting He-Man toys for Christmas, and feeling so excited to open them. I would give anything to go back.

    And your kitchen was really small in your house!

    I remember when I came out and saw those. I was all confused "why did you get me a kitchen??" And my mom was all "THOSE are for your sister!" I think I opened most of her presents for her anyway.

    Found a couple of these while looking for photos for my sister



    Not sure if I got these or if they were just watching me open my presents

    Man I loved that transformers hotcycle. That's my dog in the bottom corner, not a custom Grizzlor

    Hey Bowl-Cut Barbarin and Pixel Dan, great pics!

    Pixel Dan, I have that toy cash register in your 2nd pic. And my Disney eyes spot Black Cauldron and Jungle Book books in the lower left corner.

    This isn't a holiday photo, but this is me with my original Good Luck Bear Care Bear. He was a birthday present from my aunt for my 8th birthday. I still have him to this day.

    Christmas + 1982 + me + toy =



    I have just gotten that big bunny as a christmas present (I'm the one with a red hat). I might seem to be little unexcited about the gift I've just got, but then, what can you expect from someone who is 4 months and 28 days old.



    I'm not sure on which year this has been taken, but I think it's from 1988 or 89. Whenever that was, I really liked that spaceship.

    Indeed you do!

    Also, if you look even closer, you can see two MOTU Mini-Comics on top of that Race Track box. I must have got two MOTU figures, as well! Also, I love the GB figures I'm playing with in that picture. What a great X-Mas!!

    Ah yeah, I see Mini-Comics now. Also, in the pic where you're triumphantly holding Teddy Ruxpin (lol) I see the game "Bed Bugs" behind you!

    (and I'm just noticing that you had purple jammies...interesting, didn't know they made many purple jams for boys)

    some of you were the cool kids on the block huh? cool pics, i have a video of me when i was 5 explaining who my motu and rambo figures where. wish my sisters would give it back to me and quit showing it to the chicks i date and my friends! they all know its really a weak attempt to embarass me. they should dig out the video where my grandma was filming me as i slept, and in the middle of it i wet the bed and she goes ''o my, he just pee'd while laughing.........i would have sent it to america's funniest home video's myself but? hey dan, definatly dinosaurs, could be a future pop video? they were huge in my family, i still see em in the flea market or swap meets as some call them, that be a cool throw back, ppl dont really mention them at all, imagine all the secret doors in the back of the mind that gets opened when bringing up a small obscure toyline like that one, itll create a buzz im sure! or dino riders! awsome toys too!

    This is the only one I've got.

    I believe this was Xmas 1983 - and this was literally the first day I'd gotten my first action figures...I got Panthor for Xmas Eve, and then a TON of stuff the next morning!

    Good times!
