Lazer Tag

What's the ad for?

The scoop
Lazer Tag...the toy (or game, or sport, or lifestyle?) that spawned a cartoon, video game and a new birthday party event in the eighties. The Lazer Tag set featured in the ad above peaked between 86-88. I bought my Lazer Tag set manufactured by Worlds of Wonder (or WoW...hmm) in 1990, in a bargain bin. We only had one set between my friend Jason and I so we created our own versions of the game to play in my basement.

Besides contributing all the above to our collective culture, Lazer Tag also helped teach a generation of kids how to incorrectly spell laser.
