As you may remember from this post, I'm a sucker for good advertising. I think it was the Christmas of 1989 when I had to have a Roller Racer. My childhood bff's Meredith, Marta, and pesky little sister Rachel were Roller Racer crazy as well.
Somehow none of us caught the part of the commercial that said the Roller Racer was ideal for patios, playrooms, and basements. Instead, we tried to use them for long distance travel. Christmas day we were so excited to go around the block for the first time on our Roller Racers. The mission was aborted when it took five minutes to get from one mailbox to the next.
Marta, Meredith, Yours Truly
