Top 10 Unusual Space Invaders Gift Ideas

Having been a child in the 80’s means that I got to play some of the very first Videogames that ALL others are made from. Pacman, Super Mario and, of course, Space Invaders. The number of hours I spent in the arcade playing it, and shoving 10p coins down its mouth makes me wonder how I ever got any education whatsoever! But I did and I am very happy and grateful for the time spent playing those classic video games, the education I received and life path Atari helped me to discover. I have been so inspired in fact by the nostalgia I am feeling by the memories of those times that I thought I would bring you…

It seems that a firm called “New Movement” has the same happy memories of Taito’s Space Invaders that I do, because they have made these rather creative “Juice Invaders” drinks cartoons!  Whilst they are not realised yet they are on their way so it will be worth keeping an eye out in the shops and super markets for them.

Wrist-watches do not get ANY more epic than this one. Class, style and designer made by Romain Jerome this really is the ultimate watch for us fans of the game, and if I had enough money I would definitely get one, but sadly it is a little bit out of my price range.

  1. PAC MAN! If I never hear that sound again it will be such a relief. My godson came from Australia in 80 or 81 for 6 weeks – first thing he bought was a hand held PacMan. He played it all the time and even began playing it with his feet. Damn near drove me crazy! I abstain from this one.

  2. You bring back good memories of my younger days. I loved Pac-Man, Super Mario and Space Invaders too. I wasn’t bad at the last two, but Pac-Man was my favorite and I was terrible at it. Those ghosts got me every time! If only I could go back to those carefree days when there was no worries or responsibilities. Now it is just work work work…

  3. Love the salt and pepper pots. I remember when space invaders could be beaten if you hid under the shelter and fired through it. As long as you were quick! Memories, memories…

  4. Oh yes. When I used to do my paper-round (here in the UK) in 80/81 I used to go straight to the arcades on a Saturday and knock the high score off. That was until my mum put a stop to it by having my money go to her and she gave me some a day. I suppose I was seriously addicted lol

  5. What great memories! My dad created an Atari game for me – multiplication tables… after I did my math game I could pop out that cartridge and then I could play space invaders! We found our Atari the other day… I may have to see if we can hook it up anywhere!

  6. Wow! What Robert said about the watch…that is, let’s see- around $10,000! I still think it is cool- but I will be ordering the chocolates :).

  7. Good lord! That watch! For that much money, I expect to be able to play the game on the watch! Still… it looks *WAY* cool!

    Another rock’n list Russell, thanks!
