Atari Retro Gaming Wallets and Pouches

4 Atari Wallets - Pong, Centipede, Black and Brown

I just can't imagine having lived through the 70s and 80s without Atari and their iconic games, consoles and computers. No Asteroids, Tempest or Missile Command - the list goes on! 

As someone who grew-up playing Atari games, and also having immense fun with the 800XL and ST computers, I am a big fan, and so I was really pleased to discover these official Atari wallets, which will allow me to remind myself of a big part of my childhood and teen years every time I need to pay for something. As someone who is a skinflint, opening my wallet does not come easy to me, so with one of these cool wallets I will, at least, have something to smile about!

Firstly, I want to show you my favourite wallet, which is this very nice brown one with a round Atari logo and three stripes. I love these retro colours which really reminds me of my 70s childhood.

Official Brown Atari Round Logo Wallet

 

It's gorgeously retro, isn't it? You can buy this official Atari product on Amazon.co.uk. It features a coin section so you can pop down to the arcades and play Asteroids!

Next up, I want to show you this Atari logo bifold wallet which features a cool, retro red and white stripe 80s design. It features separate compartments for your notes, cards and coins. Sadly, it's not made from real leather, but this does keep the price down, at least.

The wallet is being sold on the Diffused Store and is despatched directly from Amazon's warehouse.

Pong was the very first Atari video game and was launched as an arcade cabinet in 1972. You can pay homage to the very early days of video gaming with this retro 70s style Atari Pong bifold unisex wallet. Once again, it's not made from real leather, but it is a high quality official product.

I adore retro designs, and this wallet just looks so cool and features the original 70s orange and yellow stripes. If you are old enough to remember this decade, then you will also know that such colours were hugely popular back then.

Atari Centipede Bifold Wallet

 

After lauching as an Arcade cabinet in 1981, Atari Centipede became hugely popular, and was the first video game to gain a large female following. This officially licensed wallet features the original Centipede graphic and has six pockets with a green lining. 

Black Atari Logo Purse Pouch

 

Finally, we have the cheapest of all the offerings here. This Black purse/pouch with the white Atari Fuji logo is roughly the size of your hand, so it's very handy (I just had to slip than one in!) for storing in another bag. Although the item states it's for ladies, as a male, I would be very happy to carry this around, so I would suggest it's definitely unisex. I really like the black colour and this will be very handy for storing my coins for the car park.

Well, I hope you like my selection of retro Atari gamer wallets. You may also like these Atari T-shirts

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Embed from Getty Images Debbie Harry Fridge Magnet Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today. Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on! I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier! After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave s

Create an 80s Aerobics Fashion Look

Let's Get Physical 80s Workout Costume During the early 1980s, it felt like the whole world had gone aerobics crazy. Females everywhere donned leotards, leggings, headbands and legwarmers, and some were even on rollerskates! Pop stars and actresses were responsible for starting the craze. Olivia Newton-John started a headband fad after the release of here raunchy Physical video in 1981, and the song quickly became an aerobics anthem. And just about every home had a Jane Fonda workout video in their collection - often proudly on display on a book shelf in the living room, or carefully placed on a coffee table for all to see. However, contrary to popular belief, not everyone was wearing neon. Take a look back at the old workout videos and you'll see a whole range of colours and styles being worn. Some leotards were shiny, some had stripes and others were pastel. Zebra stripes, leopard print, and splatter paint designs were also worn by some. There were often (but not always)

Create Your Own E.T. The Extra Terrestrial Costume

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial was the highest-grossing movie of the 80s, and many regard it as one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time. The Spielberg classic tells the story of a lonely boy named Elliot who becomes friend with a stranded extra terrestrial who needs to get back home - we all remember that classic "E.T. phone home" moment, don't we? If you're looking for a unique costume idea for a 1980s, sci-fi or film and TV party or event, or maybe Halloween, then an E.T. costume should fit the bill for both men or women. Adult Elliot Costume (US) Adult ET Costume (UK ) Now, you can buy a ready-made ET outfit from Amazon UK or Amazon.com. However, although it's convenient, it's also pretty expensive, and you can very easily create your own costume for a fraction of the cost. You'll notice that ET is wearing a red hoodie and blue jeans in the picture above for the UK costume. However, in the film, it is Elliot who wears this, and
