Old-school department store toy catalogs are in our upcoming book, and I just love flipping through them. What memories! What dreams!
Matt of X-Entertainment picked his favorite toys out of the 1986 J.C. Penney catalog.
The last item is the best: "I didn't know what to say as I peeled the wrapping paper to reveal an Anatomical Pumping Heart kit, and I cannot stress how sincerely I mean that. What the? What was this? Why did my parents get me an Anatomical Pumping Heart kit? What possible sequence of events could've led them to believe that this was an acceptable Christmas gift in any way, shape or form?I admit to being a little frivolous when the time came to pen my holiday wishlists, but I can say beyond any shadow of a doubt that I never put anything even closely resembling an Anatomical Pumping Heart on one of them."
