Only in the 1980s could a kid like myself sit in the middle of the living room floor taking just as much time looking at the selection of alarm clocks offered in the 1984 Sears Wishbook catalog as I did the toy section. In 1984 look at what might have have been on our bedside tables…the Smurfs, Sesame Street, R2 & C-3P0, Garfield, E.T., Gizmo from Gremlins, and all of the products shown were not just alarm clocks.
Personally I recall asking for the Star Wars and E.T. alarm clock, sadly I didn’t receive either but at least we have these awesome images to cherish.
