With the holiday season quickly approaching, I have seen a lot of "Flashback" toys popping up on Ebay. I find myself "laughing out loud" as I recognize some of these fun toys ... even remembering the commercial jingle! The real fun is trying to explain to my Generation Z kids these treasures and getting nothing but blank stares and questions like "And that was fun .... how??" It's hard to explain why the Easy Bake Oven was so fascinating when getting asked ..."Why wait so long when all you have to do is pop it in the microwave?!"
Does anyone remember these?
|Atari Game Console ... which, by the way, my brother just bought for my son ... It's Back!|
|My favorite was the "Land of the Lost" discs ... and admit it ... how many of you poked through a hole at least once?!?!|
|80's Boom Box ... jamming to "That Girl is Poison" ...|
|My kids got this for Christmas one year ... gotta be honest ... was way more fun when I had the patience of a kid!|
|I was a Jersey Girl ... I had these in every color combo ... we would spend hours making them to fit in our big, Final Net aerosol drenched hair!|
|I begged my mom for Mr. Bubble ... but apparently had too sensitive skin to handle it!|
|Favorite school supply of all time!|
|Fisher Price Record Player ...|
