When were these under your Christmas tree?

Is it just us, or do they just not make toys like they used to? Everything seems to require batteries now.

11/12. I did great on the ones that were *older* than the '70s. The more recent ones, not so much.

No way Atari was all the rage in '72. Maybe '82 but not '72. I think we got our 2600 around 1980-1981? Pong wasnt popular until '74, correct?
Initial release date: November 29, 1972. Official release date 1975.
