Just add whatever sicker of the whatever show logo you want to make Walkie Talkies for any show imaginable and sell 'em to us kiddies! Collect them all!

Milé Murtanovski is -not- a man you tease at a party. :D

Still, even with these "sickers" as Bill called them (not to mention box art 'n advertising) it -is- nice to see "boys toys" being marketed towards girls.

This, of course, was literally decades before demands from feminist groups for more "gender equal" toys.

Wonder if the girls' walkie-talkies used the same frequency as the boys'? That could have been all kinds of havoc. Still is. A set of FRS radios in the clutches of some neighborhood urchins will make life a living hell for every tradesman in the area.

I'm not aware of any Starsky/Charlie's Angels crossovers, but there was a Magnum PI/Simon & Simon crossover episode: http://magnum-mania.com/Episodes/Crossovers/Emeralds_Are_Not_a_Girls_Best_Friend.html

Sickers was supposed to be stickers... I wish we could edit posts... but this brings up a more important issue... Did they make Simon & Simon walkie talkies?

The answer, Bill, is yes, and the price is $22: https://www.ebay.com/itm/SIMON-SIMON-1983-Gordy-International-Walkie-Talkies-TV-Action-Figure-Toy-MOC-/162673178497

Wow! Behold, the true power of logo stickers and publicity photos!

The closest we ever got to a Charlie's Angels/ Starsky and Hutch crossover was in the Charlie's Angels episode "To Kill an Angel", which had a girl wearing a Starsky and Hutch T-shirt.
