What was the one cool gadget you really wanted but never got?

Inspired by @Zeealist - To expand the regrets and missed opportunities beyond childhood!
  1. I wanted this pink boom box SO BAD in high school. Never got it, cause it was kinda pricey.
    I still check eBay for it occasionally, truth be told. 😁
  2. A waffle maker !!!!
    My cousins had one I was so jealous !! Now that I can afford it (it's like 10€ guys!) I don't to remind me of that feeling

  3. A game boy 😭😭😭
    My parents were against screens for the longest time. I get it now, but at the time, I was MAD. Serious FOMO.

  4. A palm pilot
    Even though I was a small child and it was clearly not intended for me, I wanted one soooooo badly. My dad let me play with his all the time, and I would sometimes hide it in my toys, thinking he'd surely forget about it and that I was a true mastermind.

  5. A Hair Crimper
    I had to settle for braiding my hair when it was wet and hoping it looked "cool" the next morning!

  6. Tamagotchi
    I wanted a real pet but didn't get one. I wanted an electronic pet and didn't get one. Life.
