Here’s something that never made sense about Santa.
Despite the fact he was a mystical, superhuman being who could travel around the world at light speed carrying a world’s supply of presents, he never seemed to be able to bring you anything outside of the Argos catalogue.
Hmm….doesn’t quite check out that.
Anyway, while we’re on the topic, let’s indulge in some nostalgic goodness by reminiscing about all those junk toys you were so desperate to have when you were younger.
Jelly Alien Egg
Remember how when you’d smoosh two of their heads together and put them in the fridge to find that they had given birth to a brood of smaller alien babies?
Of course you don’t. Because despite all the rumours, that never, ever happened once.
Velco Food Play Set
Just the mere sight of these bad boys makes us want to well up with nostalgia. Although, looking back, they do seem a bit silly, considering you could buy all of the real things at Tesco for less than a fiver.
In summary, Mr. Frosty wasn’t such fun, and he never made a drink for anyone.
Getting a Scalextric for Christmas was like a dream come true. Well, that was until you went back to school in January only to find that a friend of a friend who went to another school had been given a slightly better Scalextric complete with trees, people and a grandstand. Your dream had now turned into a Christmas nightmare!
Looking back, it’s hard to see why everyone of us had Battleships, a game that really does put the ‘board’ back into ‘boardgame’.
Do your family still get you bad Christmas presents, thinking you’re about thirteen? Sort them out and request one of our handy gift cards. With one swipe on this card, you can get whatever food and drink you like, so hopefully Auntie Julie will put in a little more than a fiver this year.
Even better, ask for two Christmases; at home on the big day, and beforehand at one of Revolution’s Christmas party venues. After all, you can never get too much Christmas!
