Smurfs Watch - Strawberry Shortcake - Sears Wish Book 1983

These 1983 Wish Book Watches Will Make You Wish You Could Go Back In Time!

Christmas is all but here and I won’t lie to you…I truly wish that somehow one of these watches from the 1983 Sears Wish Book was miraculously waiting for me to unwrap under the tree tomorrow.

Of course even back then the vast options you had to choose from was a little overwhelming! I ask you…which do you choose? One of those pair of Smurf watches…maybe the digital one that states “Have a Smurfin’ Day!”?

I’m truly not sure if Holly Hobbie is even a thing anymore but I can assure it was a big deal in 1983! Of course how could you go wrong with an A-Team/Mr. T digital watch?

I told you that the Return of the Jedi was almost on every single thing that could be merchandised in 1983! Which watch though would you have chosen? One featuring the Ewoks or the vile Jabba the Hutt? Perhaps you might just settle for something like Garfield?
