Tough Christmas List Choices!

It’s that time of year…time to dust off the ol’ Sears Christmas Catalog and compile your ‘wish lists’. If you find yourself having trouble coming up with something to ask Santa for, you need to look no further than page 538 of the 1986 catalog. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of these choices: Wrestling Superstars, M.U.S.C.L.E.s, Rocklords and Rulers of the Sun! My first choice would be the little pink men, but each of these toylines was fantastic.

    Thanks Plaidman. I’ll be spending the 15 hours poring over the Star Wars toys and video games if anyone needs me. I had no idea that site existed -and it is fantastic!

    I don’t think it’s been updated in a while, which is a shame….I hope the site hasn’t been abandoned. Though I can imagine the amount of time it would take to scan an entire catalog like that.

    Christmas and Sears’ holiday catalogs were an inseparable event as a kid.
    Great link Plaidman!

    Lotsa jollies pouring through pages of toys back then, and even now.
    Though shipping today might require a DeLorean or a Tardis.
