The other day, my girlfriend Kamie wrote on Facebook that Jem and the Holograms was on TV. I can’t believe they have that show on again. It is the old show, with the bad makeup and hair from the ’80s. Her daughter thought it was hilarious and cheesy. Apparently you can reminisce by watching the old episodes on YouTube.
It got me thinking, and a little nostalgic, what else the big toys from the ’70s and ’80s when all of us girls were kids? Here are some I found. I hope you enjoy memory lane like I did.
Cabbage Patch Kids
My Pretty Mermaids
Easy Bake Oven
Ah, you are the same age as my daughter, or close enough. She had many of these same toys, and the jelly shoes. I saved a few of her toys, and I have my Chatty Cathy and Barbie and a few other dolls, all of which my granddaughter now plays with. So, keep some of those around, you will need them some day!
Aw, so fun! Thank you!! I love seeing that stuff!
Love it! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

SO FUNNY. I think I had all of these, or close. Some others I remember? Rainbow Brite, Fraggle Rock, Teddy Ruxpin. GOOD TIMES!

Do you remember the Wuzzles??? I friggin’ LOVED the Wuzzles… HA! I carried around that half hippo half whatever-she-was thing with me all the time… She was so fat and sassy – loved her!
Oh man, I totally remember all of this. Also, the Snorkles, Popples and Skip-It.
Why oh why did we ever wear jelly shoes?? They were so uncomfortable!!

The cat’s cradle photo is actually from my site, http://ifyoulovetoread.com/… — would you link to it rather than to the site that copied it from mine? Thanks!
These photos have been posted in literally thousands of pages and pinterest boards and I’d really like them to be linked to my site, they took me a long time to take and I had hoped that they would promote my books, not other people’s things.
