This review is from: 21st Century Dodos: A Collection of Endangered Objects (and Other Stuff) (Hardcover)You really do have to be over thirty to get the most out of this book, though my fourteen-year old remembers some of them. I'm just shy of fifty and will admit I was unaware of some of the toys in here, but yes, I remember Sinclair Spectrums, sweet tobacco (it never encouraged me to smoke) and 8-track stereos. I still think snickers are Marathons, Starbursts are Opal Fruits and G00d God! My daughter tells me Bounty bars have changed their name now, too! I loved Texan bars and Old English Spangles, too.
This is a book to dip in and out of rather than a sit-and-read. Quite a trip down nostalgia lane.
