  1. >Hah! Had one of those 😀

  2. >Character actor Parley Baer plays the grandpa in this commercial.Considering the one scene where the girl sets down Merlin to answer the phone, I wonder how many people mistook Merlin for a phone!At the time (around my area), more kids had the Mattel hand-held electronic football game and Simon!

  3. >Friggin' loved my Merlin. Taught me how to play blackjack…LOLI still remember the jingle from the other TV spot: "Where's Merlin, where did it go? / Janie's got it, playing tic-tac-toe…" Weird what you store away in the ol' memory banks…

  4. >Oh man, I wanted one of those soooo bad. Mostly because it looked like something right out of "Buck Rogers".
