    Plaid Stallions Gigantic Toy Sale! $2.99



    This ad is from 1979 and a lot of the toys on deep discount because they're being cleared out, I vividly remember something like this when I was ten. It was really hard looking at the Big Jim, Six Million Dollar Man, and Pulsar stuff I wanted as a kid for pennies. It haunts me to this day because I just bought some Empire Strikes Back Stuff.

    Man, they were really blowing things out, I remember those times too. I never even heard of this store chain, but it looks like they were out west.

    I remember those water games. They were really big for a little while. I can't believe how popular they were considering when I tried one decades later it seemed amazingly boring. I guess they were simpler times. And by that, I mean it was a time when I was simple.

    I don't remember seeing ads like this as a child. I would have been all over this. I could never hold on to my $2 allowance for long.
