S3E21: News Update! Plus the Top-50 Toys and Products from the 1977 Sears Wish Book

Right before the Atari VCS, Star Wars toys, and Lego hit big in the 70's there was the 1977 Sears Wish Book. It's like an archive of everything "cool" before things got real. Every year in September or October, the Sears Wish Book would arrive in the mail, and our job was to circle the things we wanted for Christmas.  In this episode we dive into the top-50 weird and wonderful products from the 1977 Sears Wishbook (plus some extras)  You can follow along in the links below: Wishbook Pages To Follow-along: 60-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-212.html# 59-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-181.html 58-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-198.html# 57- Oops.  56-https://docs.google.com/document/d/1n_PeDI7eu0mTv1T6BVFwyowA-ZFspwJP9Yio-HV-uLk/edit 55-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-562.html# 54-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-604.html# 53-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-599.html# 52-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-479.html 51.http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-530.html# http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-338.html#   50-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-575.html# 49-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-352.html# 48-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-478.html# 47-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-477.html# 46-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-418.html# 45-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-443.html# 44-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-444.html# 43-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-468.html# 42-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-503.html# 41-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-410.html# 40-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-521.html 39-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-511.html 38-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-504.html 37-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-435.html 36-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-408.html 35-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-501.html# 34-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-506.html# 33-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-584.html# 32-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-580.html# 31-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-404.html 30-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-617.html 29-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-542.html 28-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-528.html 27-http://www.wishbookweb.com/FB/1977_Sears_Wishbook/files/assets/basic-html/page-542.html# ...
