Christmas-y things that no longer exist

Just saw this and had a flashback to selection boxes with Vice Versa’s

Then last night in SCROOGED Bill Murray was drinking Tab Clear.

There must be loads of shortlived 80s and 90s products and toys that now don’t seem to really exist.

Was definitely a time when I got a Yo-Yo every year in my stocking. Never see them any more.

Kerr-plunk still exist? Used to play that all the time with my sister growing up.

Toys weren’t cheap and times were hard growing up in the early 80s.

Sudden urge to revisit that GreenDay album.

The big grey spaceship was the first toy I remember asking for at Christmas and being so excited about getting it that I felt sick.

I had the red one and the black one, my mate over the road had the grey one. I might have had the base too, but i’m probably making that memory up.

Goodwill towards all men/women.

The Spira is my all time favourite chocolate bar.

When I did my Yr 11 work experience (c. 2002) it was an accountancy firm and they had a tuck shop in the break room. It was one of relatively few places that still sold Spiras around here. Cue me absolutely clearing it out every day. By day 3, they’d stopped calling me Mike and instead called me Spira.

P.S. If you could all like this page, hat would be great:
