Children's Palace Virtual Toy Chest

One of the few Children's Palace artifacts I've run across is the Children's Palace Virtual Toy Chest from 1990 (I think). It's basically 45 min of crappy skits and segways to various toy commercials. Wacky kids run a TV network and endorse all sorts of Mattel, Tiger and Matchbox toys.

The "adult" at the network is the notorious "ROBO-T". Robo-T. That could only be some sort of Mechano-Man or at least a super advance cyborg. So lets pay a visit to FANTASY PARK! and ROBO-T!!!

What in the hell!?! Yep, no mechano-man or super advance cyborg. Robo-T is in fact some "Weird Al-lite" ass-clown with a man-perm.

“Cause she’s got a GREAT ASS!"
He's dope, he's wack. He's a ra-ra-ra-ra-rappin' fool!

Robo-T is goosed by a stray unicorn while in Fantasy Park
Hey kids, it's an Amber Alert!

There's a lot of crappy toys shown and a few cool ones. Some came an went like "Bongo Kongo", "Mall Madness and"Spy Tech". The NES was in full effect at the time, so there's plenty of game commercials too.

"Double Dragon II: Rescue the girl with C3PO's arms"

The ape from Kongo Bongo

I'm dreaming of...horses? "Carousel Horses" by Matchbox (huh?)

Remember Krunchers! ? Well, they eat them in the video for some reason.

Bye-Bye Children's Palace.

A toy chest can contain a lot of toys. And it will consume a lot of your time to search one particular toy. It is even more of a hassle when you have more than one such chest. Putting up labels on to the box helps you and your toddler understand where the cars or the trains’ are kept. A plastic chest is even feasible as it allows a see-through feature letting your child know what’s in. These chests are available in different styles . You can go creative with a pirate styled chest. They are famous and have a niche style. You also get these toy boxes walled with learning letters, flowers, animals etc. Thus giving it a dual purpose - one of storage and second, a learning method for your little one.

Robo T is my name, and rappin is my claim to fame, cuz everything I say and do, wraps around like Ted and Sue. And now that you know what im all about, it's time-to simply-rap the lights out!

I have this video from back in the day (I actually vaguely recall getting it at one of these stores) and have watched it many, many times. xD
