Rude Ralph I've still got my "Rude Ralph" though his eyeball hangs out permanently now as the string was over-pulled by one of my children. So he can't make his rude burping and throat-clearing sounds, though my son enjoyed teething on his nose sometimes. My son is now 19 years old, and Ralphie, well he's ...about 25 years now!! I'm not saying how old I am now though.
VCRs My big sister had a betamax around '83. Still teenagers then, me and my wife thought it was great getting to stay with my sister on Fridays and Saturdays, we'd go into town and get a couple of videos for the weekend. It was fun getting to choose what you wanted to watch instead of waiting for something decent to come on at the pictures. This obviously affescted the price of going to cinemas etc. All was fun, until my four-year-old nephew fed his toast to the video-player.
