Did you know you could get Pac-Man Wallpaper in the 1980s?

I was flipping through an old 1983 copy of Popular Mechanics when I stumbled across this coverage of Pac-Man Wallpaper from their New Now section. For me this was the stuff of dreams that only kids in movies and TV had, but if they could have it, why not the rest of us? So was anyone lucky enough to have this incredible wall covering in their childhood bedrooms?

    I didn’t realize this existed, but I had a sheet set in the same pattern.

    I actually have 2 rolls of this wallpaper in perfect vibrant condition. It had it on one wall of my room growing up.
