A Vintage Nerd, Vintage Teen Christmas, Nostalgic Vintage Toys, Vintage Holidays, Vintage Christmas Gift Guide

Ever wondered what were the coolest gifts in the 1950's-1980's? I created a little list of vintage gifts that were not only popular during its time but also what I would have loved to have gotten as a present for Christmas. 

Some of my favorites were the Lite-Brite and Simon Says because I used to play those toys as a little kid. The toys I wished I had from this list are; are the Game Boy and a VCR because I think as a teen it would be cool to watch a tape with the VCR and play video games with the Game Boy. Which of these vintage gifts would you want for Christmas?
