Dad bringing home a Sony C5UB Betamax video - our first video - and watching a wonky copy of E.T. .
Almost snap! My Dad won a VHS player, and we had to venture to the local estate to rent the tapes (first of which was a copy of E.T, before its cinema release) from a distinctly dodgy character.
His earlier win of a Soda Stream was also eventful - lots of youthful getting 'busy with the fizzy'

That reminds me. When I was a kid, I went hunting for Christmas pressies with my brother. I found a Big Trak under my parent's bed. I was all "Ooooo! Look what Mum & Dad have got me!" to my brother.
Only it wasn't...... It was what they'd got him!
I think that was the year I got my Tamiya 'Wild One' R/C car.
