I was going through some old stuff and I found this packaging for these things I had as a kid. They were these speaker things you could hook up to your walkman so you could listen to it without headphones. You could clip them all over your clothes and be a walking nuisance. Of course, these were never too popular… I remember buying them overstocked at the dollar store for $1 each. I bought a bunch of them. They are still around somewhere. I thought the packaging was funny so I thought I would share.
If I recall correctly, I had/have the jukebox, the drum set, the heart, the mouth, the boom box, and that stripey purple star thing. I had some of the “expanders” too, so you could plug in 4+ speakers at once. The sound was pretty horrible but for $1 in the days before we even had Wal*Mart or Best Buy in my town, this was pretty much top-of-the-line electronic musical gear. My walkman went with me everywhere back in those days. I never saw any of the ones with the radio in them… those must have been sent to the $2 store.. haha.
Look at how cool this guy is! Cool, or about to get beat up? Or about to get tangled up while passing a tree?
If I find the actual speakers in a box somewhere, I’ll post them for y’all to see. The juke box was my favorite because the cord had little plastic records on it. I guess if I found them I could still use them with my MP3 player…
