I grew up in the 80s. And I maintain that my childhood produced the greatest things ever. The proof is that most companies are rebooting pretty much everything that started when I was a kid. And even the reboots are crap compared to what we had. I wish that was just the old lady in me talking but really, it’s just true.
Because, let’s face it, it’s hard to get better than any of these:
The Oregon Trail. The best way to get out of class and score computer time on my school’s one computer. Also practice my buffalo killing skills ’cause you never know.
Also included but not pictured: The Great Space Coaster, The Magic Garden, Lite Brite, Popples, bubble tape, Dolly Pops, Cabbage Patch Kids, Garbage Pail Kids, banana clips (that I could never wear because of my ridiculously thick hair), and jelly shoes.
What do you guys think? What are some things from the 80s that trump all the crap they have now?
