There are so many things I remember growing up with, loving and being obsessed over. I saw this list of things only an 80s baby would get and immediately realized that I’m getting up there! Let’s be clear, I ain’t claiming old lady status yet, I’m just saying I ain’t a baby! Here are my favorites from the list:
I was a complete nut over some Cabbage Patch Kids back in the day. I had three of them. I still remember their names. Irene, Nadia, Alfonso. I treated those dolls like they were my kids!
I never got an easy bake oven. I’m only slightly bitter… still.
These lip balms were addictive. Looking back, I wonder what the heck was in those things?
As much as these things made my feet sweat. I rocked them – HARD!
I kinda wanted Lisa Bonet to be my big sister. She seemed cool and was seriously stylish.
Am I the only one who waited for the mail to come hoping to have a letter from my pen pal? My pen pal was in Africa. I don’t remember what country. I do remember that her name was Nadia. I always wonder how she is now. I was in elementary school when we sent letters back and forth. It was great to hear about her life. I SO wish I had kept in touch with her somehow.
What things do you remember from the 80s that you’d add to this list? How many of you were born in the 80s?
