Last week a few co-workers and I started talking about toys from our childhood. We are all children of the 80s and it was so fun to reminisce about all the toys, shows, movies, and food of our youth.
Here were some of the things we talked about:
Garbage Pail Kids
I loved these! I remember my dad would bring home packs of these for me on his way home from work. When I think about them now, I have no idea why I (as a girl) liked them, but I did.
Super Mario Bros.
I can remember spending hours and hours playing this on the floor of my bedroom growing up.
Cabbage Patch Kids
I had several Cabbage Patch Kids and loved them.
My girlfriend brought these up and I wasn’t sure I knew what she was talking about, but as soon as I saw the picture, I remembered these tasty chips.
The Berenstain Bears
I had so many Lisa Frank items – pencils, pens, book covers, and even a comforter.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
While I wasn’t a big fan, I do remember that my sister’s best friend growing up (who was a boy) loved them.
New Kids On The Block
I remember New Kids On The Block because they were the first concert that I ever went to.
He-Man and She-Ra
I remember that cops would come talk to our class about drugs throughout the year.
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids
OF COURSE I remember this .. only my favorite movie EVER!!! 🙂
My sister LOVED this show.
I LOVED LOVED LOVED Care Bears!
Sweet Valley Twins
I think I read pretty much every one of these books.
My Little Pony
I LOVED these!
Another favorite of mine as a child.
Easy Bake Oven
aahh, memories!! How many of these do you remember? Anything not on the list that you remember from the 80s?
