New Wave Toys’ New Jam is Replica Boomboxes

The number one thing that I think of when I recall the 1980s is a boombox, more than video game consoles or super-macho cartoon heroes. Yes, those giant, silver twin speaker beauties could be hoisted on one shoulder and would go through several D-cell batteries per day. Nothing cemented your status as the cool kid quite like a tall stack of tapes and Toshiba deck.
If you’re nostalgic for those days of blasting Tiffany, NKotB, or Run-DMC out of a portable stereo, then New Wave Toys has two new items for you. Although the company is mainly known for its mini arcade cabinets and other gaming-related replicas, it is moving on to another staple of the ’80s. So here come the M90 Mini Blaster and Micro Blaster.
The Mini Blaster is an 11″x6″ replica boombox with two 3″ 30w speakers. It features functional knobs, an FM tuner, working antennas, Bluetooth, MP3 playback, and a working cassette door. It even comes with a small prop cassette. Not a bad deal for $159.99.
