Inspired by this image that @Matt_was_taken posted in the daily thread:
For some reason, my parents refused to buy me Mouse Trap for my birthday / Christmas despite sustained efforts. You know, I don’t think I once got to play Mouse Trap during my childhood.
We were also discouraged from games consoles though I don’t think I was ever refused one, and I used to play games on my dad’s PC.
What about you? Did any of you grow up in a home without a television (for ideological reasons)? Anything else? Hungry Hippos, maybe?
