released these rather cheesy cassette players around 1988 (aimed
at the elementary age market). They came with proprietary tapes
that looked like small 8 track tapes, which each contained two
songs. Fisher Price was the only manufacturer of these little
tapes, but many of the top songs of the day could be purchased.
Some of the songs include “Wanted Dead or Alive” (Bon Jovi),
“Heaven is a Place on Earth” (Belinda Carlisle), “(I Just) Died
in Your Arms Tonight” (Cutting Crew), “Footloose” (Kenny Loggins),
“California Girls” (David Lee Roth), and “Wake Me Up Before You
Go-Go” (Wham!). The outside design of the Pocket Rockers was
mean to be stylish, so they were very popular for a time. By
1991, the Pocket Rockers line was discontinued.
