I kind of miss walkmans and cd walkmans. Used to have them on me all the time when I was a kid in school. These days we got MP3 players and other similar devices, now we got phones that can do it all.

But I still feel that nostalgic feeling with walkmans and other devices like it.

Walky Talkies, I know they're still around. But we used to enjoy playing with this as a kid. Now kids are so used to having phones that they don't need them.

Those pocket pets. I can't remember what they were called but they were on a keychain. I had so many of those. I know there was a wave of interest that brought them back but they aren't like the originals. I really miss those a lot and wish I had kept some of mine.

Maybe you mean Tamagotchi ?

We sell them quite often in the shop, it's quite surprising how much we do sell and there's nothing techy there really.

My old Kindle, it was just a kindle for reading but it broke and I miss it. I know ebook readers are still around but I don't think they're that popular anymore.

I wish I had a radio deck with double cassette player below it to record with. I had so much fun with that.
