10/10--but I will admit that a couple of them were educated guesses. I had (and still have!) the portable Coleco Pac-Man game pictured in # 9.

i believe #1 was an AOL ad featuring "You Got Mail" in the next scene

but i bought TWO of #9 (not $60 ea, garage sale must have been $2 or $3, i wouldn't spend even $5 when i was pickin') dang though i didn't know those toys cost that much new
