Christmas 1979: The Electronic Generation

1979 December Personal Computer World photo. A group of young children playing with the latest electronic gadgets and toys.

The early days of the home electronic gaming revolution for kids in the UK (from the Personal Computer World December 1979 issue). Many would find these games far too expensive back then but there was always the arcades, electronic calculator games or just leafing wistfully through the latest Argos catalogue.

Thought I'd share a little with this of a great looking event up at the National Museum of Scotland, on the 13th of December: Rab's Video Game Christmas Morning. Sure to be a joyous thing.
