Blast Back From the Past: Simon

Blast Back From the Past: Simon

While today's tots are entertained by a variety of electronic games — many of which fit in the palms of their hands — most of their parents were first introduced to the concept with the simple, four-color memory game, Simon. After first hitting store shelves in 1978, Simon became the must-have toy of that holiday season. As the '80s progressed, the game became even more popular, showing up in feature films such as E.T. and National Lampoon's Vacation.

Though the original version can only be found on eBay these days, Milton Bradley offers smaller, pocket-sized versions of the game and virtually every electronic game manufacturer, like LeapFrog and V-Tech, has its own version as well. While modern games offer a variety of educational benefits and beautiful images, there will always be something magical about the simple, four-colored buttons and unsophisticated sounds that came out of Simon.
