My cousins got this VERY SHORTLY after they came out with it and the first time I spent the night after they got it, we stayed up until almost 12am (which for kids our age was like staying up until 6am) and the whole time we were up we played with this thing and to this day I STILL haven't figured out how this thing works but I know I'd love to get one though. One of the coolest toys of the early 90's lol.

Had one of these. I remember me & my friends would stand in front of the screen and use our fingers to make it look like our wieners were sticking out, lol. Many hours of laughter were had.

Flashscreen my ass! I got this for Christmas once and it worked NOTHING like in the commercial whatsoever. When you took a "flash" at someone, the outline hardly showed up. I was severely disappointed.

I remember this commercial. It's a wonderful idea. I never had it or knew anyone who had it.

MAN! i had 1 of these! it was AWESOME! i remember during hurricane Fran, when our power went out, i played with this thing for like 8 hours....there was nothing else to do. I think i would have played with it all day every day if i didnt have friends!

I remember this toy. My cousin had one and everytime i would go to my grandparents house which was at least once a month. Some of us would get together(cousins) and play with this toy. We loved this toy and we played with it all the time. I remember being blinded by the flash. Whenever we get together now we laugh about some of the funny pictures we made.

Still have it, still works. It's awesome. But yeah, dalmatianlover, the flasher WAS extremely bright, and you have to close your eyes real tight if you're going to stand in front of the screen and get flashed.

OMG! I actually had one of those things, and it really worked! The flasher was extremely bright, and it did blind people though.

I LOVED flashscreen! It worked best in a perfectly dark room like a bathroom.
