It seems that you have to be old to know what it is but not too old as people like matt and blondie don't know what it is.  Or maybe they did have them but their memory doesn't go back that far!!
I'm the same age as Nick damn it!

I remember them but they did not look anything like the one in the picture! Was far less modern. Blondie is too old hehehe and nana must be too. She thinks she is our age but she isn't really - not mentally anyway. Stop fooling yourself nana!

When Blondie was at school they studied the Romans, not in history.............in current affairs

I didn't see one of these at school - mind you we had RM nimbus pcs when I started high school and Logo was on them - great fun for year 7 IT and maths lessons.  I suspect that I am also too old for these...  :(

I loved these.  I was having a conversation with someone not very long ago about them.  I used to like programming them to see if you could mke them go all round the class room and not bang into anyones chair.  hehe
