It is fun to look back in time to the 70' and see things we thought were so cool and the latest technology or the "In Thing" when we were younger, looking at the toys from 1977 is a great way to transport you back in time. 1977 was a year when solid state/transistor based electronics became the latest coolest thing to own including Novelty Radios, The latest in Radio Cassettes signing the beginning of the end of the Eight Track Player Format. We even saw the beginnings of early digital games.
