60 Rad Retro Recreations

From Vintage Gameboy Cushions to VHS Redesigns

— June 13, 2012 — Tech
There are the people who tend to always be on the hunt for new items and then there are those who seek vintage items or retro recreations that bring back the past.

Just because you have a passion and love for things that existed in the 1930s or 1980s, this doesn't necessarily make you a hipster. For most people, it's about memories that are attached to certain items that make them go nuts. It's either that or just a fascination with all things old.

This collection of retro recreations comprise of items such as Game Boy mugs, Nintendo pillow cushions and mock VHS notepads. These kinds of items make people reminisce about the past, specifically in times when people had to 'rewind' cassette tapes.
