Autograph books – you weren’t cool if you didn’t fold in the pages. I really wish I still had mine. I think they got wrecked in one of the floods in our basement.
Pen pals! I remember getting assigned an international Pen Pal once in grade school. That didn’t last long because we had ZERO in common (including English). I did have another one – a girl in TX. That one lasted about a year or two. I think her name was Susan and she liked purple.
Micro Magic- shakes, burgers and fries. These were the BEST microwavable meals! They tasted just like fast food.
Pink/white or black/gold Huffy bikes ( the only two colors available ). I remember the day my BFF from across the street and her brother got these bikes. Every kid in the neighborhood waited in line to take it for a spin.
What girl didn’t collect these charms? I had 2 necklaces filled with charms. and I wore them at the same time… it was like a status symbol or something- LOL
These barrettes were my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE! My sister made them all for me – I probably had 40-50 pairs. My aunt made me a crocheted face of a girl with long blonde braids that hung on the door knob just for my ribbon barrettes. I really wish I made these for Allyson when she was little and had no control of what I put in her hair…. LOL
I hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane with me! I can go on and on here but I think I stop right here. Are you an 80’s kid? Is there something from your childhood that you wish was still around to share with your own kids?
