When I was 8 I had one that talked. It would tell the story on each reel. It was the coolest thing. But that was when my parents had first got divorced and we didn't have money for cable TV and internet was around yet.

Kids today have pretty much any gaming platform they can think of, hundreds of TV channels, and the they can go anywhere and see everything on the WWW.

It's sad that such a cool thing is going away. At least it won't be forgotten

I remember entering souvenir shops and heading right for the View-Master displays! Last year I was looking through some boxes and found mine. With all the technology today, I still didn't find it boring like the little jaded kid did.

I loved my View-Master when I was a child...the 3-D images would take you a world away. And when you were 6-8 years old, that was pretty profound.

Kids today have absolutely no imagination, due to all the technologies that are right at their fingertips. sad

Perfect example of that is when I took the kids to see Bridge To Terrabithia, When we were leaving I heard a kid say that the movie was stupid and no one could imagine like that. I just felt so sad for that kid.My imagination cap is still in place.

My kids loved my view master. But then again I didn't allow the video games and wild stuff they have now. My grandchild is also recieving more tradionals things like board games. Kids don't get the chance to use their minds or to imagine anything with the dumb stuff they have now. Parents and grandparents, put your foot down and don't buy all these "sit on your butt and blow up things" games and toys.
