Konami Frogger King of the Road T-shirt for Men

Frogger was one of the first video games I played at home on my Atari 800XL computer (in 1984), and so I was thrilled to find this very cool Konami Frogger King of the Road T-shirt, which will allow me to show my appreciation for the game, which is most definitely an 80s classic.

The T-shirt is available in sizes from Small to XX-large. The graphic has a slightly distressed look and features the logo and pixelated frog from the game. It would make a great gift idea for retro gaming fans or anyone who grew-up in the 80s and fondly remembers playing the game. It is also ideal for wearing to 80s or gaming events, conventions, or simply to show your love for the game.

You may also like this alternative navy blue T-shirt for men which features the logo and artwork from the 80s arcade cabinet. This one is also available in sizes from small to 2XL.

My version of Frogger came on a cartridge, and I actually really miss those ROM cartridge games, as unlike the cassette versions, you didn't have to wait for half an hour for the game to load. Even in 2022, you have a very frustrating wait for many games to download and install, whereas a cartridge game would load almost instantly.

The game was first released as an arcade cabinet in 1981, and it was very simple to play but quite a challenge to master. It was one of the few games that I did actually master, and it was also incredibly addictive - crossing the road has never been so much fun! 

You may have played one of the many home console and computer conversions such as on the Atari 2600, or one of the cloned versions such as Acornsoft's Hopper for the BBC Micro and Acorn Electron, or Froggy on the ZX Spectrum. There were also countless BASIC language versions and type-in listings published in the computer magazines of the time.

You can play a free version of Frogger on my Simply Eighties website, and there is also a Frogger Gifts page, too.

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 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

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
