1987 Sears Video Wishbook – Santa’s Favorites

In 1987 Sears released their first in-home video catalog featuring an exciting collection of Sears exclusive electronic toys.

Sears Video Wishbook VHS

Some fun things to watch out for in the video:

  • Joey’s sweet shirt
  • Hillary being a great big sister offering to teach Joey to use the Computron
  • Ronny learns the true meaning of Christmas
  • Electronic toys can be fun
  • Humble Hillary admitting they could be better kids

 

 

Go ahead and put me down for a Lobo II and a Talking Computron.

I have no idea if Sears continued the idea of the video wishbook in following years or if this was a one year and done thing, though it does seem like a good idea as near the end of the 80’s nearly 90% of american homes had VCR’s, and in the 80’s we all loved our Christmas catalogs.
