The joys of the internet

Is there anything that can’t be done? You can play virtual Nintendo games, watch classic television shows, find baseball cards of your favorite player and toys that you got on Christmas as a kid for sale.

My latest find:

Read-Along Adventures. I had a ton of these records (yes, records) and books as a kid in the 1970s and 1980s. Now, with the click of a mouse, I can revisit several of my old favorites, since I no longer have a record player. OK, actually, the site doesn’t have several of my old favorites, but there are still so many there to enjoy.

There is a similar site called Power Records Plaza that is dedicated more to the superhero read-alongs, although it looks like some are just the pages of the books and some are just the audio. I haven’t spent a lot of time there yet.

Do you know of other sites like these? Leave a comment, or just post other cool sites that you’ve stumbled across that take you back to your childhood, or to things that pre-date your childhood but are still cool!

Hopefully someone will post a link to some sort of online Colorforms site, where you can once again create all the cool adventures that your imagination will allow…on the computer! Especially if that site has the Dukes of Hazzard set! YEE-HAW!

For those who can’t be bothered to click on a link without knowing what they are clicking, here are the sites linked to above, because you really should check out each and every one of these sites…

* Virtual NES
* Joost
* Read-Along Adventures
* Power Records Plaza
* X-Entertainment blog
* Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends fansite
* He-Man fansite
* Batman fansite for the original TV show
