Blast from the Past: Casio’s My Magic Diary! By | June 28, 2010

Castelfranco Veneto

I was rummaging through a drawer filled with junk when i found this little thing! I was confused for a moment trying to place it… then it hit me! That’s my Magic Diary!!!

If i am not mistaken it was back in 1993 when one day an ad appeared for this diary in the news papers… kids went berserk! I remember running to my parents and begging for one IMMEDIATELY! The drive to Al3ejairi Book store in Al Neqra was very exciting as i imagined my self clasping my hands around the tiny little electronic diary!

I couldn’t sleep well that night, i started entering my friends home phone number and drawing their faces with the face recognition thing… it was the one feature that made it so appealing to me! I had so much FUN with that!

I remember the very next day… me showing it off in the morning 6aboor thingy at school… I was the first one to buy it at school! I loved it sooo much i kept it for all those years…

I also remember that there was a model that could send messages to each other with infra red but u needed friends who had a magic diary as well <3

There is a little problem though, my husband claims that this is his magic diary and not mine… and i say it’s mine! I guess the dispute will be settled when we replace the batteries and check the phone book to see whose friends faces are there… it is MINE!

Do you remember this Magic Diary? did you have one too?

      my husband didn’t write diaries.. just saved his friends faces and numbers! He claims his memory was full as he went around and saved every one’s numbers in school!

    one of my favorite gadgets when i was a kid! I loved mine. After reading your blog i went on a hunting mission at my parents house trying to find mine but unfortunately had no luck! :(

    • danderma says:

      Wee 7safa :( it would have been fun watching all those old forgotten faces and numbers!

    Oh gawd, I used to play that game with a friend of mine in class… Lotta good that did me; graduated with really low GPA 😛

    I had one of these! (nostalgia kicking in :) )

    Even though I never actually used it as a diary, I did play games with my aunt (she’s young) via IR. good times.
    it seems i wasn’t the only one who had fun with these.

    PS: I don’t think changing the batteries will help (memory probably gets ereased without power), but it wouldn’t hurt to try anyway.

      Looool! I believe its now marked as “priceless” but I do know exactly how you feel! I still remember how cool and sophisticated I felt when I first held mine for the first time, all these years ago, in a time where smart phones were something out of a sci-fi movie!
