The Sears Wish Book and Star Wars Toys’ Real Value

Brad Ricca | March 31, 2014

Sears 1981 Wish Book

During the time of the first three films, there were significant barriers standing between kids and the Star Wars stuff they craved. The drive to Children’s Palace or Kiddie City or Gold Circle was, for most of us, insurmountable. The only way we could get to one of those places, with all their light and treasure, was usually at the tail-end of a larger negotiation of good behavior. Or a birthday. Or straight-up blackmail. As it has been for every generation, going to the toy store was never a frequent enough visit. And since there was no Internet or rec.star.wars.fanz.hanshotfirst.woot, the only place kids could interact with the Star Wars universe was in their front driveways, bashing their little brothers with a piece of plastic pipe stuck into an old bike grip.

There had to be a better way.

Luckily, there was. The best place where young fans of the film could interact with the toys, and thus the movie, was in the paper-thin pages of a Christmas catalog: the Sears Holiday Wish Book. And the best part? It was already being delivered to their homes for free.

Petco Feels the Force

J. Scott Blanton | September 11, 2013

A long time ago in a little kids room far far away, a 10-year-old boy tried to muster the Force with all of his will and power. Just like Yoda teaching Luke to raise the X-wing from the swamp, all the little boy wanted was to turn that little red light on in the nose of his toy X-wing fighter — all the way across the room from his bed. It wasn’t working, but he believed it would happen, so for what seemed like hours he tried and tried with amazing concentration, until he fell asleep, exhausted. The next morning when he woke, everything had changed. The light was on. It had worked, and it had to be because he believed in the power of the Force.
