Intel, the chip people, have Project Monument going over at MSN at the minute. It’s a campaign that lets people reminisce over their favourite stuff.

I’ve had fun trying to guess the year certain retro toys came out. You’ll spot a few in the ad below.
I must admit I recall not being very fond of the Furby at the time. I have memories of one squawking from the mantlepiece and disrupting an RPG session. However, looking back, I view them with some fondness.
Which came first? The Furby or the Tamagotchi? The Tamagotchi came first, followed by the Crazy Bones and then the Furby a year later.
