My recollection is that this was the first Christmas that the NES was widespread. I wanted one so badly when I saw it and like most dumb kids at that time, I was convinced that R.O.B was going to be my new awesome robo best friend. I never did get R.O.B, by the time I got an NES, it was 1987 and I had seen it fail at all of my friends’ homes.
