I used to think these were called "sing a long" lights

When I was little, I thought these were called Sing a Long Lights, and when you plugged them in, tinny sounding xmas music would emit from them.

Brooks Pharmacy, December 1, 1991 (pittsburgh press)

Look at all the exclamation perfume. I finally bought some last weekend at WalMart, they had the small bottles for $3.

Woolworth, December 1, 1991 Pittsburgh Press

This woolworth paper was specifically for mall locations in the area. Hence, the nicer merchandise, like the NES, SNES, and Game Boy. Pretty sure my Woolworth in Hampton, VA never had merchandise this nice. I do remember them selling Rollerblades at my location.

VCR Plus (12/1/1991

Did the VCR Plus really work? It seems so much easier and cheaper back then to learn how to use the timer record function.

  1. My family had one of these. Just put in the code that was in the TV Guide. I think you were able to put more than one code in (but the channel had to be on the right station).
