Show & Tell Tuesday: A Trip Down Memory Lane

Man I had a lot of fun with this topic! Super fun to think back onto my childhood and my favorites. I thought about TV, movies, toys, fashion...you know all the important stuff! I was born in 1980, so comment and share your favorites too! I'm sure there's a lot I'm not thinking of too!


Books:

Let's start with my favorite topic! Babysitter's Club! I loved me some BSC!


Sweet Valley Twins {not High}, Judy Blume books, 


R.L. Stine, Christopher Pike,


I read EVERYTHING by V.C. Andrews {and it was so not appropriate!}


Toys/Games:

Barbie was BIG! Patty and I would have fashion shows, and I had the ice cream shop, and we could play Barbies for HOURS.


I also loved Cabbage Patch kids. We had books, the board game, a premie doll.
I remember the Christmas Patty and I got our first dolls. We didn't know for many years the trouble my mom went to so we would have these on Christmas morning, and instead of appreciating them, we both burst into tears. Patty thought hers was a boy because her hair was tied back, and I didn't like that mine had red hair. What brats! Ha!


Care Bears! I remember all the movies and Care Bear Cousins... so fun! 


We didn't have a Nintendo {womp, womp}, but I played it at Allison's {my movie date} house.  



We played a lot of Sorry, Guess Who, Battleship...we were big into board games!


Anybody remember this screen?


Movies/TV:

Every time I spent the night at Allison's we watched Girls Just Want to Have Fun.


I loved Rainbow Brite! I had the doll and a Starlite doll too. 


I watched A LOT of Nickelodeon!


LOVED She-Ra! For many years both Patty and I rented The Secret of the Sword which is the movie about He-Man and She-Ra and she was bad and didn't know she was He-Man's twin and he rescued her. Anyone remember that? 


TGIF! Full House, Family Matters, Perfect Strangers, Just the 10 of Us, My 2 Dads, The Cosby Show, Designing Women, Golden Girls, Cheers, A Different World, Family Matters, Murphy Brown, Saved By the Bell... 


The other movie we rented at EVERY birthday party! 


It's cookie time!


Fashion:

Keds! I loved these green Keds so much!


Bangs, bow, shrimp earrings, one piece romper my mom had made for us...NERD.


I always wished I could have dressed like Punky Brewster, ha!

This is all the stuff that popped into my head right away. I would love to hear what you remember about your childhood!

Yes to all of this! Best post ever! Brought back such good memories. I would add making playdoh food while we watched the TGIF lineup at your house. We still have a Nintendo! ;) - AP

I loved the babysitters club but preferred the "super sitters" books where each girl wrote a chapter. My mom rediscovered some of the books a few years ago and I hope I kept them. I also had a cabbage patch doll, but I never ever played with her and when our church needed baby clothes for something, I donated her whole wardrobe without a second thought haha
