Nostalgia Vault: 2-XL Robot
Updated: Feb 16
Remember this gem from the 90s?! The 2-XL Robot was your cassette tape companion dishing out jokes, stories, random knowledge, and tech way ahead of its time.
Remember this talking robot companion from the 90s?! Bruno & Nick were reminiscing about this gem of a toy which apparently, started out in the 70s with an 8-Track version. 8-Tracks were the precursors to cassette tapes, which were preceded by CD's, which are like DVD's but they only play music. Feel old yet?

“What do you call two banana peels?! Answer: a pair of slippers" - Classic 2XL Joke (also a classic Dad joke)
2-XL Was Like A Robot Dad
From terrible puns and Dad jokes to stories and quizzes, 2-XL was hours of fun and a true hit of the 90s. It was the gift that kept giving, especially with new tapes released every so often. Tiger Electronics produced the toy in the U.S. along with a myriad of other really cool electronic toys and games that just about every kid had in the 90s. Check out the nostalgic commercial below for a true throwback.
