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 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.

Official Atari Pong Bi Fold Wallet


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

An 80s Tennis Player Costume? You Cannot Be Serious!

While most people opt for a pop star theme when dressing up for an 80s party or event, one option that is a little more original is to dress like an 80s tennis player. The costumes I'm about to show are obviously based on John McEnroe, and I'm dead serious! The short-tempered tennis star became infamous for his confrontational behaviour towards the umpire during the 1980s, screaming "Answer my question! The question, jerk!" (when he angrily threw his racket at the juice cart) and "You can't be serious man, you cannot be serious!" when he thought the umpire had made a bad call about the ball being out. He was often booed by the crowds for his rants, but it was hugely entertaining to watch! Embed from Getty Images The look above is the one you should aim for, and this is the most iconic. So let's take a look at the fancy dress costume options available...     The white T-shirt and shorts outfit with red and blue stripes is based on McEn

Create an 80s or 90s Acid House - Raver Look

With its squelching bass sounds (often created using a Roland TB-303 bass synth) and minimalist production, the sound of acid house first became popular in the latter half of the 80s, starting in 1987. The media were more focused on the illegal raves and psychedelic drugs, but in reality, a good many young folk enjoyed dancing to the new sound in nightclubs (including myself) without going anywhere near any drugs or illegal raves. What is synonymous with the acid house scene is the smiley face logo, and the T-shirt featuring the logo, along with tie dye and psychedelic clothing, and bucket hats which became popular with ravers. Baggy over the knee shorts were popular with men. Bandanas and dungarees/dungaree shorts were also worn by both sexes. Some ravers also had  yellow whistles . In the early 90s,  white overalls , hooded anoracks and  yellow dust masks with an "E" , smiley face or radiation symbol also became part of the rave scene. Initially, the dust masks we
