Christmas Wish Lists From Way Back

Christmas wish lists today differ from lists way back. Nowadays most people want gadgets or high-tech items. Let’s take a look at some of the items people put on their wish lists decades ago.

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.
