I get nostalgic about some of my earliest memories of the video stores around my town in the early 1980s. Video Rental Shops were such a big part of growing up in the 80s and the beginning stages of my adult life in the 90s. It’s understandable why they went extinct, but it’s still a shame.
It’s that magical time of year again, summer! This summer MY SIDE OF THE LAUNDRY ROOM is switching things up to celebrate the season, so expect the unexpected.

Well it’s that time of year again. Lights are twinkling, there’s music in the air, and i remember some of the times Santa ripped me off. These are some of the toys I remember asking Santa for when i was a kid and for one reason or another they never made it under the tree.
This is a return of sorts as I use to write about all the toys I wanted as a kid but never got. Most of those stories revolved around my parents dropping the ball but this time it falls squarely on the shoulders of the holly jolly con artist, Santa Claus.
As always this is meant to be fun and just a good way to remember some great toys from our childhood. Enjoy!
The 80s gave us some of the greatest toy lines ever created. In a bold move that has become very rare nowadays, toy companies added huge playsets to their popular toy franchises. They were big, they were expensive, and they were coveted by a many of kid in the 1980s. Playsets!
Hope you enjoy!
