    I loved this thing. I wish I still had it too. Got it the Christmas after the movie came out. I played with it so much that I actually wore out the speed control but it still worked though lol.

    I seriously created radio shows with this thing. I listened to them for my own entertainment. I think this is why I'm a filmmaker now :)

    "hhhhhhhhhhhiiiiii kiiiidddds weeerrree hoommme eearllyy"
    Calactus Posted 6 years 2 months ago
    Looking back, I thank the Lord that my parents don't sound like that.
    The Midnight Rider Posted 6 years 4 months ago
    This was all the rage thanks to Home Alone 2. I wanted it, but never got one sadly.
    paperorplastic Posted 6 years 5 months ago
    I got this for Christmas (I didn't want the Talk Girl because it was pink -- eww!) right after it came out. I seriously counted down the days until Christmas morning, I was that excited...

    After about five minutes with this thing, I realized that the commercial made it look a hell lot cooler than it actually was. But it wasn't a total loss since it made a pretty decent walkman.

    Their dad apparently has a terrible breathing problem if he actually sounds like that.

    Jaymoon Posted 7 years 3 months ago
    I remember we had this, and also the pen version. It recorded like 10 seconds max, and you couldn't even understand simple speech that was recorded on it.
    marcometer Posted 7 years 3 months ago
    After seeing Home Alone 2, I didn't think the existed. But when viewing the Toys R' Us catalog and saw it. I got it for Christmas, that was the year I got everything I wanted (from my Dad's side of the family). Never happend again, the next year my half brother was born :(
    cweezy619wes Posted 7 years 3 months ago
    I remember my older brother owned one of these
    flatrascal107 Posted 7 years 4 months ago

    gothgrl20 Posted 7 years 8 months ago

    MAN did I want this toy when I was a kid. Looked like fun even if the gags in the ad were impossible.
    lilfitzi10 Posted 7 years 10 months ago

    BayouKat Posted 7 years 10 months ago
    My brother had this. It's still in his closet actually.
    mandy003 Posted 8 years 2 days ago

    Skeletor Posted 8 years 25 days ago
    One of the best toys I ever had, couldn't put it down!
    RockoJulian Posted 8 years 1 month ago
    I had a talkboy watch. It was way cooler. I recorded a lady in church on christmas singing and I played it for my sister after church and she cracked up. You could even make it go fast or slow. I miss it very much.
    SuperSpaceGirl Posted 8 years 1 month ago
    i use to have a talkboy, but it got broke. last year i got a talkgirl and she work great.
    redredrobin11 Posted 8 years 1 month ago
    I remember thinking this was so cool when I saw the second Home Alone movie. And my mom got me a Talkgirl for Christmas!
    rnorred06 Posted 8 years 2 months ago
    OMG! I have one of these! This was possibly my favorite toy ever & still is! I would constantly play with it every day with my friends at my old neighborhood! I am 21 years old now & I still use it a lot! This is one of the coolest toys ever made PERIOD!
    rosesandrazors Posted 8 years 2 months ago
    Yeah home alone made this thing famous. I always wanted one but my friend had it so i just played with it there.
    musicchic Posted 8 years 2 months ago
    I remember that toy! I wanted on really bad but never got one ): I thought that it was brilliantly used in Home Alone.
    atomicbread Posted 8 years 2 months ago
    AW MAN I HAD THIS SO GREAT i laughed like crap when i sped it up. sounded like chimunks

    ilpalazzo Posted 8 years 3 months ago
    I always wanted one, then I found the joys of playing video games outweighted the want of this toy.
    fadedyouth Posted 8 years 3 months ago
    Someone I knew had one of these and I loved it. *Damn you subliminal messages in Home Alone.*
    80s90sboy87 Posted 8 years 4 months ago
    LOL gosh this commercial looks so old now, I always wanted one of those.
    9sam1 Posted 8 years 5 months ago
    lol this never worked right but it still rocked :)
    retrocop Posted 8 years 8 months ago
    My cousin had one of these, he drove me crazy.
    Grundian Posted 8 years 9 months ago
    I remember this commercial, I always wanted these really bad, ever since Home Alone 2.

    Never got one though, though if I see one now somewhere I'll buy it and use it to record my lectures in college :p
    90schild87 Posted 8 years 10 months ago
    my mate had had one.
    he lent it to me one day at school, i got a kid called matowish who no one liked to say fuck on it then played it in class.
    the teacher didnt buy it and i got in shit.
    had heaps of fun with it though.
    BluePhoenix Posted 8 years 11 months ago
    I remember this. I never saw the point of it. =P
    ChowTimer Posted 8 years 11 months ago
    I remember this commercial. I used to want one of those Talkboys.
    daminmancejin Posted 8 years 11 months ago
    i always wanted one of them and never got one but that thing was cool
    kimsy520 Posted 9 years 16 hours ago
    Typical stereotypical little

    I wanted the talkgirl recorder, too
    dalmatianlover Posted 9 years 19 days ago
    I had a ton of fun with this toy! It broke a couple of times. There were also some times when we had a couple friends over, and they messed around with it a lot. For some reason, my brother never liked the speed control. Ahh, memories.
    sizz_leteen Posted 9 years 26 days ago
    I so wanted the TalkGirl Recorder.
    sonmanic Posted 9 years 1 month ago
    After seeing Home Alone 2, it justified my purchase of one!
