For my A to Z Challenge theme I will be posting items that are no longer with us or are close to becoming extinct.
These are great items to use if you are trying to set a time period in your story or to stay away from if you want your story to be timeless.
I'm having so much fun wracking my brain for items that have existed in my life time. I hope you are enjoying these items as much as I am.
Coke labeled it a"vibrancy drink." What does that mean? Vio is carbonated flavored milk. Which sounds truly gross. In 2009 market tests in locations including New York, shockingly, it failed to find broad appeal.
Viewmaster- As a kid this was so cool. The round disks had photos on them, you put them in the Viewmaster pulled down the little lever and the disk spun and you viewed an image on the disk. I still see them sometimes at state parks but I don't think they can compete with all the technology kids have. A viewmaster is going to lose to a tablet anytime.
VCRs and video tapes- These bulky tapes and machines have been replaced by disks.
Video Discs- these are the only disks that did not survive. These discs were the size of old records, full length albums.
