Ventriloquist Dolls
Ventriloquist dolls were one of the most coveted items back then. They come in different shapes and sizes. Children, as well as adults, can enjoy playing with a ventriloquist doll. As shown above, the ventriloquist doll comes with a ventriloquist case and can be brought anywhere.

AM Headphones and Walkie Talkie
Another big hit was the vanity earphones and the walkie talkie. Children can have hours of fun playing with a walkie talkie. It is useful for adults as well. Imagine having to use this type of walkie talkie today.

Plush Velour Perma-Prest Kimonos
This is the ideal gift for men back then – velour bathrobes! They come in different colors that compliment every style. They also come with matching booties.

Pizza Hut Bake and Easy-Bake Oven
The Easy-Bake oven and the Pizza Hut baking set was a big hit for children. They can easily make their own baked goods and small pizzas with these toys. They are easy to use and safe too!

Superhero Pajamas
These superhero pajamas are flame resistant. They come in different sizes and designs. Kids love wearing this during Christmas. Notice that the pajamas come with matching masks.

Denim
Remember when denim was a big hit? Pre-washed flared denim jeans and denim outer shirts were a big fad. They come in men and women’s styles as shown above.

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    Valeriie Liin and The Cameras She Brings

    There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

    Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
