Retro Reels Slots
Children of the 1960s did not have computer or console games, or the latest app for their mobile phone,
in fact they did not have a mobile phone. Electronic technology for the child existed only in television
shows such as Star Trek and Lost In Space. No robot with the latest in artificial intelligence technology,
no, just a simple wind up toy for them, which funnily enough are still popular with very young children.
A recent resurgence in everything retro (an interest in things used in the past), from retro robots and
the retro space hopper, to retro telephones has led to a whole industry being born to cater for it. Retro

Toys of the 1960s allowed for the children to be more physically active than they do these days. With
favourite of the era such as Hoola Hoops, which was a large rings of plastic about 5 or 6 times the
circumference of a child's waist. The child would step into the ring and place the hoop on their waist,
then with a hip twisting motion make the hoop spin around their waist. Another excellent toy from the
1960s, which only just made it in the 60s as it was first created in 1968 in Italy, was the retro space
hopper. This fun toy was an hollow ball of rubber with two handles, that a child sat on and was able to
bounce around their garden. This device suffered a severe decline in interest by the 1980s, but has
made a major comeback since the late 1990s thanks to being made popular and a must have at festivals
and other outside events. Of course the child of now, although still having a chance to have and use
these toys, tend to now prefer the electronic world, and have the computer portray a virtual person
physically exerting themselves. In the last few years, there has been a push by game console companies
to add real life physical activities with that of the virtual one portrayed by the computer (the words
computer and console being interchangeable in this context). The most popular console for this new
genre of gaming entertainment being the Nintendo Wii. They have managed to successfully to get both
adults and children interested, to put it mildly, with games that actually required real life physical
exertion on their part. But, and there is a wee but, this all still occurs within the four walls of their home,
and therefore they are not exposing themselves to the fresh air of the great outdoors. Okay I suppose
for those who are deep with an urban environment, but for any who could get out and experience the
health benefits of a rural or at least semi rural setting, this is still not being achieved (unless they open a
window). Retro Reels Slots
The play master and its reels were the closest a child of the 1960s could get to the modern video
technology found in mobile telephones and computers available to the 21st century child. This toy, if
you can call it that, was basically shaped like an old style camera (1960s/early 1970s), and it came with
circular strips of plastic that had film clips placed in a circle going around the edge of the circle. These
were placed in the view master, and by pressing a button or lever you could mechanically, not
electronically, move the reel around to view each slide in turn, much like a slide show. Retro Reels Slot
Therefore, the child of the 1960s, although starved of the super fast technological environment that a
21st century child has, still found plenty to amuse themselves with, and more than likely had a healthier
lifestyle thanks to the way they engaged with the toys of the time.
