Nickelodeon Talk Blaster
« on: February 28, 2019, 03:36:15 PM »
My most recent phone purchase was a Nickelodeon Talk Blaster phone.   This phone was originally sold around 1994 as part of a series of "Blaster" electronics with Nickelodeon branding.  Other products included the Time Blaster alarm clock, the PhotoBlaster camera, and many others.   As Gen-Xers and Millennials are getting nostalgic, these items seem to be getting more collectible.   The Talk Blasters I've seen were going for $50 and higher on Ebay and Etsy.

I purchased one from PhoneVault for $35.  It was NIB, complete with all original parts and manuals.   The attached picture is an example of a boxed one and not mine specifically.

It works perfectly and is fun!   Once you install 3 C-cell batteries, you can choose from five different ringtones by turning a knob on the front left.  Lights also flash on the top when the phone rings (or when you hit the big red "test" button on the front right).

If you're curious about what this thing sounds like when it rings, here is someone's video:
