So, this is a spinoff of what we were discussing in the SS thread, I'm having a lot of fun reminiscing all these things we HAD to have when we were kids. ( or for your kids or grand kids ) I thought maybe some people who aren't participating in the SS might have some fun discussing it too!
Some of the things mentioned were Cabbage Patch Kids, (I still have mine)
Easy Bake Ovens
Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls
Those metal roller skates you tied to your own shoes (that was before my time but I had something similar)
At add to that list, (keeping in mind I am a child of the 80s)
-Cricket the talking doll, she had a tape recorder in her back and her mouth and eyes moved. I saved my birthday money and allowance for*ever* to buy that... Can you imagine a 7 year old blowing 100 bucks on a doll?
What else do you guys have to add to that list?
