Admittedly offered in the reduced stuff so maybe no one wants it either. IMO encourages secret dates/ messaging with older boys and men and sexualisation of young girls. WIBU to complain to the shop?

Is that dream phone? 😂 had no idea that still existed.

Just a stupid board game isn't it? With some cheesy messages from Chad and Brad thrown in for good measure.

I had that game when I was a child. Mid thirties now, it’s not new.

BeetrootTart Sun 03-Dec-17 15:44:14

It's basically Guess Who. But with a crappy phone device and "hot guys".

EdmundCleverClogs Sun 03-Dec-17 15:44:38

Oh I had that game! Was hilarious, managed not to be traumatised by it, it was so cheesy. Totally overreacting.

My favourite was Gary (555-3211) grin

I had that when I was younger I thought it was great.

GertrudeCB Sun 03-Dec-17 15:47:31

Please go out and buy yourself a grip op.

I always wanted that!

Did anyone have Heart Throb?! I still have that at home, often play it with my nieces, it's hilarious grin

Aw I had that when I was younger. Girls have had silly crushes since time immemorial.

I would imagine it's a bit dated now, unless the mystery guy is snapchatting rude pics.

Mimimouse4 Sun 03-Dec-17 15:55:29

I had this when I was younger!! It was fab!!

MaisyPops Sun 03-Dec-17 15:57:09

Sounds like a crappy games that encourages girls to be obsessed with random boys liking them.

Complaining to the shop might be a bit much but I understand why you want to.

I'd liked to have thought that sort of game died out ages ago.

Where have you been for the past 25 years fgrin

AppleKatie Sun 03-Dec-17 15:59:28

grin best Christmas ever when I got that game 😂😂

I remember my sister getting it for her birthday in the early nineties. I was jealous as fuck.

She got the Mr Frosty as well and the red thing that dispensed tiny dairy milks.

SoozC Sun 03-Dec-17 16:02:47

I desperately wanted this when I was about 7! And a Girls World styling head. I got neither sad

TheHolidayArmadillo Sun 03-Dec-17 16:03:44

Oh I was desperate for a dairy milk dispenser. It would have lasted half an hour grin

Mummyoflittledragon Sun 03-Dec-17 16:04:21

Ooooh. Feminists stand aside. Deffo one for dds Xmas list wink

EdmundCleverClogs Sun 03-Dec-17 16:04:31

I know it wasn’t your intention op, but you’ve given me genuinely nice nostalgia. I’m trying to remember which Christmas I got this, it must have been 22-23 years ago shock. I remember being surprised getting it, because it was totally more my younger sister’s type of thing. We had hours of fun playing it at my grandparents house. Seems a completely different lifetime now, some of my happiest childhood memories are of Christmas at my grandparents’ (long gone now, bless them).

Sorry for the trip down my personal memory lane blush.

FlaviaAlbia Sun 03-Dec-17 16:05:06

Wow MumGoneMild that would have started a war in my house... Luckily my DP refused to buy us any of it and we remained friends grin

Iloveanimals Sun 03-Dec-17 16:05:12

I wouldn't go complaining. You'll look a bit crazy 😜

BeetrootTart Sun 03-Dec-17 16:06:52

I had a Girls World (it was shit). I never got Magic Bottle Baby or Lil Miss Magic Hair sad

MumGoneMild Sun 03-Dec-17 16:07:35

I got the bar Barbie horse that walked, rainbow brite castle and girls world so i had my share of envy and seething resentment thrown back at mefgrin

Oh my sister got the latter two things! I was so jealous of her Daily Milk dispenser - I think you needed to use actual money for it though? I think I just nicked the chocolate before she actually put it in grin.

Argh, serious 90’s nostalgia here! Did anyone have a little electronic organiser/diary? We got one each that connected by infrared and we could play Battleship on it, was pretty awesome for its time.
