a commercial i've been looking for for a long time is the TalkBoy one from 1992 or 1993. in it a boy records his sister saying "stop drooling on me" when she's playing with the family dog and later sneaks up behind the couch when his sister's boyfriend is over and plays the clip over again when they start to get close. in addition the kid uses the slow-mo option to say "hey kids, we're home early" to freak out his sister. so if anyone has this commercial, i would greatly appreciate it if they'd upload it.

      Since we are talking about the Talkboy, does anyone remember if it came out before or after Home Alone 2? I remember Kevin had one.

        I am pretty sure it came out after the movie was released.

        EDIT: yes it must have come out after the movie because in the commercial it begins with the narrator saying: Now you can have as much fun as kevin with the Talk Boy FX Plus!

          It was a prop, the thing in the movie is the real thing.

                    I use to have a Talkboy after Home Alone 2 was released on video. I remember a couple of commercials of the Talkboy.

                      YES!

                      Talkboys were awesome. I had one and I used it for almost 5 years. The longest toy I ever played with.

                        I don't have the Talkboy, but I've heard it since it was used in the movie "Home Alone 2" with Macaulay Culkin.

                          I found the commercial on a tape from early '96 (meaning it was probably made for the Christmas '95 season -- quite a while after Home Alone 2). I'll upload it today, so it should be on RetroJunk soon.
