    My friend and I sat here and looked through every single page of this wish book and laughed! I remembered a lot of things from there like the Steelers stuff that my brother had. Awesome!

    My sister and I used to sit and look at that catalog for hours. My mom couldn't wait for it to come in the mail. I think from November 1 to December 24 we were the best kids ever!

    That really brings back some memories; sitting around with a plate of Christmas cookies and some milk, looking through the catalogs.

    Man, I remember sitting there...flipping through a HUGE catalog.

    I think it was from Sears. I was like 6 at the time this one came out.

    I poured over all the toy pages.
