I do not remember the exact year in the 1980s, but one Christmas just about every one of the kids I knew got a Kodak Disc Camera. I remember asking for one and i got a little 110 camera with a built-in flash instead, which was more than adequate. That spring though, when my class went on a field trip to New York City, the “disc kids” let me know that my little 110 was not at all “cool”.
Why would kids be so focused on a specific model of camera? Probably because commercials like this one which seems focused directly on the little jerks who mocked my 110.
Grrrr. All these years later and I still want that camera (and the robot pictured above)!
