    I just recently found my old Donkey Kong game...works perfect!
    The one in the little cabinet? I was looking for an old toy a few weeks back and I was looking at old JC Penney catalogs and I saw those little arcade games. They were like $50, which was a lot in the 80s. I was surprised they cost that much. I never had any because I had some of the games on Colecovision (I had Donkey Kong), but my cousin had Pacman. I didn't have Pacman until my dad got a used Atari with like 20 games at a garage sale a few years after it came out.

    Oh the things kids do. My friend convinced me that we could poke holes in the swimming pool with a knife and then tape them back up. It didn't work. Lol!

    My first sign of OCD. when i decided to wash my pacman machine.

    Well, needless to say young me found out that was a mistake.

    sigh. supposedly coleco was looking into re releasing those.

    i sure hope so
    Weren't they talking about re-release all the way back in 2014? It looks like it didn't pan out.

    About a year ago my then 12yo nephew decided to see if his new pocket knife would cut the mat on their 14'x16' trampoline that my parents have for them. It was like a 1" cut. They kept jumping on it and now the rip is all across the mat. So they are luckily getting a replacement only because my niece uses it more. I think if it was just him my dad would have just taken the whole thing down.

    No Jason, just the flip-up handheld game, sorry. Think it is DK 2, since the background is some kind of jungle with a lot of lianes (sp?) on the top screen instead of the ladders.

    Not a toy really, but who here is old enough to remember carrying a book satchel to school? In those days back packs were only for camping and stuff.
