In 1998, I was the luckiest kid in the world. I was 17 and working in a comic book store. The store was owned by a chinese family whose daughter was in my class, and I remember several days I had to help coordinate cross-town searches for those got-damned tamagotchis. The store had 2 phone lines and I had to call retailers and pass the info to the mom and kids on their cell phone. I don't understand why they didn't just try to get a case of them from a distributor. They just wanted every single variation for themselves and I think they were about $20 each; the article didn't mention prices.

Then one day they started carrying beanie babies in the store, and I was no longer the luckiest kid in the world.

movieman_1979: Take me back to the 1988 one, when I was 9 years old. Then we'll be talking some serious nostalgia.

Are you sure this ISN'T the 1988 one? Because, DAMN, it looks so dated. Honestly, I was set to come in here and complain that 1998 wasn't that long ago, so what's the big deal--then I perused it, and all the pictures/models look like they were shrink-wrapped back in 1983. I was expecting to flip the page and see boys in blouses whacking those hoop-thingies down the street as grownups passed them in their horseless carriages.
