* MAKE IT AN INTELLICHRISTMAS!
Let's take a trip down memory lane. It's 1982, and you trot downstairs on Christmas morning in your Smurf PJs expecting to find that Santa has indeed deposited your new Intellivision games under the Christmas tree. But alas, no Intellivision goodies to be found! Where could they be? Hmm, let's see, socks from Grandma, some Legos, more clothes from Mom and Dad. WHERE IS IT?!? You know Mom sent the letter you carefully wrote in crayon to the North Pole, weeks ago! The fat guy in the red suit LET YOU DOWN!

Fast forward to 1999. You never quite got over the Great Santa Letdown of 1982. We know you're bitter. We know that EVERY HOLIDAY SINCE THEN YOU'VE BEEN EXPECTING TO SEE SOME INTELLIVISION SWAG! That's why we're here. Don't let one more holiday season go by without Intellivision under your tree. In fact, don't let anyone you know suffer another holiday without Intellivision! You know how you hate to shop for the holiday - all the traffic, parking, and the crowds at the mall. Why not take the stress out of your holidays by shopping naked, in the comfort of your own home?! You can be sure that's what we're doing this year!

* INTELLIVISION LIVES! CD-ROM
Haven't you said to yourself, "Gee, I wish I my (kids, wife, husband, mother, best friend) would stop stealing my Intellivision Lives CD."? Why not pick one up for that special someone? It's a perfect stocking stuffer! Remember how you and your brother or sister used to fight over the games? Get them their very own copy just so you can remind them that you RULED at Astrosmash! Perhaps you need another copy for yourself. One for home, one for the office! Go ahead, we won't tell your boss! What could be more enjoyable than an hour or two spent in front of the computer, reliving Intellivision memories in all their blocky graphics glory?

* INTELLIVISION ACTIONWEAR!
Looking to update your wardrobe? Some of the hottest trends this season can be had for a pittance here at Intellivision! We have some fabulous new designs hot off the presses! Imagine walking into the office on casual Friday sporting your brand-spankin' new ASTROSMASH or B-17 BOMBER T-SHIRT. The vivid box art has been reproduced in glorious Technicolor on 100% cotton shirts. These are generously sized, available in Large and X-Large. These babies are limited edition! Once they're gone, that's it! Be the first in your cubicle to get one!

If you had something a bit more subdued in mind, the classically styled RUNNING MAN T-SHIRTS might be just what you're looking for. Available in blue and Intellivision Master Component brown, these T-shirt have an Intellivision Running Man silk screened in black on the front and the www.intellivisionlives.com URL printed on the sleeve. We have extended sizes for this style! Available in Medium, Large and X-Large. These are some classy shirts, folks, so get one for every member of the family! (The medium might even fit the family dog!)

Proclaim your support for Intellivision! We liked the title art on the Intellivision Lives! CDROM so much, we decided to create the matching INTELLIVISION LIVES T-SHIRT. These comfy 100% cotton shirts are all the rage. Say it loud! Say it proud! INTELLIVISION LIVES!

Rounding out our sportswear collection is the INTELLIVISION CAP. All black with the classic Intellivision logo embroidered on the front, this one's sure give you days and weeks of durable wear, classic style and UV protection. We love ours so much we rarely take it off. (Note: the brim makes it a little difficult for stomach sleepers.) The adjustable buckle strap makes it comfortable for just about everyone. Yes, even the dog!

* PAC-MAN FEVER MUSIC CD
In our music department, we have a blast from the past! Oh boy, this one's a goodie! From the semi-famous duo of Buckner and Garcia, we offer some of the finest 80's music ever made! Yes, it's the PAC-MAN FEVER album, finally back after nearly 20 years! The title song hit the Top Ten in 1982 at the height of the video game craze! There are 8 tracks on this little gem, including the now classic PAC-MAN FEVER, plus ODE TO A CENTIPEDE, DO THE DONKEY KONG and others! Spin this one on the CD player Christmas morn while your loved ones relive the eighties playing Intellivision Classics and Intellivision Lives! Now THAT'S an IntelliChristmas!
