Kinda reminds me of web TV. Did these things show porn back then as well?

Galt Toys has yet to go Galt. They did indeed at one time hold the Lego franchise, but I wonder about a doll from Spain.

Eerily accurate prediction. I'm not sure if Wikipedia is better than Grolier's but with Amazon you get to see more than an ANSI drawing of what you're buying. Funny how they mention 300 years in the future when it was actually closer to 20.

That doll would cost over 200 bucks if you adjusted for inflation.
