Included on this page of toys are Cuddly Toys, Star Wars Space Ship Millennium Falcon, Speak and Spell, Pachinko Pinball Machine, Atari 400 Home Computer System plus many more from the 70's
1979 shows the growth and maturity just starting in the electronic/digital toys available, including the Atari 400 costing $549 (about $3,000 in todays money). Another great example is how quickly calculators evolved during the 70's, in 1974 a student calculator which was very basic and pretty big cost $39.50, by 1979 just 5 years later a more powerful credit card sized calculator cost $14.99. One more example from this year is the Chess set that allowed you to play against a computer. I remember having one of the early versions of these and they were not that hard to beat even as a fairly low level player, but they did provide hours of fun and helped to hone my chess playing skills.
