    My moms got one, but I don't remember the year. It had heman, transformers, rainbow brite and my little pony so it was sometime in early to mid 80's. I wish I had one for every year, they are so nostalgic!
    I don't know about you, Miss Kitty, but I feel so much... yummier

    Hmmm, yet another idea that could still be useful today, but unfortunately isn't around anymore (at least in the states apparently)... Such a tragedy...

    Who lets these things happen!?

    Can't really blame Sears for it. Nobody shopped out of it anymore and they were losing money. I just blame Walmart like I do for everything else.

    JCPenney still puts out a Wishbook-like Christmas catalog.

    Aaahhhhh...the Sears wishbook!!! Oh how I miss thee!! I would sit and circle everything I wanted in that book. Also, the J.C. Penny catalog which had the toy section towards the end of that big book, I would circle everything in there. Sure enough, Christmas day I would have every toy I circled in the catalogs and more. I don't wanna grow up. I want to go back to when I was a kid....the good ol' days.

    I remember around I don't know maybe Aug-Oct Waiting for these! I would run home everyday from school to get my hands on them before my bro.

    Me too..I'd put a huge circle around around all the toys I wanted...When i was a kid I didn't think my toys came from the toy sores or magazines...I thought that Santa's elves were so good at making toys they could just make a toy from the catalog and it would be exactly the same
