80’s Nostalgia: Teddy Ruxpin

Yes I was an 80’s child and I had my very own Teddy Ruxpin with a cassette player for a belly so he could read me stories at night, unfortunately mine fell out of bed and his eye fell out! Oh well good memories.

Teddy Ruxpin came out in 1985 and has made several attempts of a comeback since, but I think he was trumped by Furbies, Barney and the Teletubbies.

Ode to The Bakelite Goodness

Oh the joy of polyoxybenzylmethylenglycolanhydride (bakelite) plastic! The retro appeal of this early 20th century invention brings joy to many vintage hunters like myself. Yes i am the ebay outbidder you dread hehe. I have posted a few of the must have bakelite items :

1. The Bakelite Telephone is an essential!

2. Bakelite Kitchen Products!!! I-C-O-N-I-C

3. Forget digital, its all about the analogue

4. Coffee is always better retro panache

5. Button it up!

Super Plastic Fantastic Fun!

A Goreski Obsession

Break out the vintage frames, bow ties and prep style and you have Mr Brad Goreski, as seen on Bravo’s Rachel Zoe Project.  Mr Goreski always looks pristinely styled and well presentable. The über geek chic icon, who has a Clark Kent cuteness, is definitely a latest obsession for Retroho.

He muscled his way.. as a Midtown Queen

Indulging in abit of retro, there is nothing like vintage beefcake action pornography. What make it different from today is that retro porn seems to have innocence which is lost in today powerfuck stallions and multiple penetration culprits, multimillion pound industry. So indulge in a bit of beefcake action.
