Top 10 Childhood Throwbacks
Some of the best conversations I’ve ever had involve talking about TV shows, games and crazy weird stuff we used to watch and play with as kids. I actually met my boyfriend of over 3 years while in a debate about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Pretty awesome, I know.
Here are the top 10 throwbacks that will hopefully take you back, waaaay back.
1). Pete and Pete
Need I say more about this gem of a show?
This crazy egg thing seriously took over my life. You had to feed the thing, let it go to the bathroom, etc. I was hooked and I know you were too.
Remember these puppies? All I know is that when I got the slammer, it was time to put my game face on.
4. Hey Dude
I was glued to this show about a group of teenagers who worked at the Bar None dude ranch. Check out this slide show I found about where these ranchers are now.
5. Polly Pocket
I had a million little pieces to take care of for my Polly Pocket. I would spend all day playing with this crazy contraption. I also had the Polly Pocket mall. That thing was huge!
6. American Girl Dolls
It was like a right of passage to get your first American Girl Doll. You pretty much weren’t cool without one. Everyone LOVED Kristin because she was blue eyed, blond and beautiful. But, I was more of a Samantha fan. I had a bed for her, a closet and accessories. She was well taken care of to say the least!
This was the best game ever. So simple but so competitive.
I used to love throwing these mini noise makers around all the time. Why is it that a silly noise is so fun you can’t stop?
9. The Little Giants
Ice Box, Junior and Jake. Loved them all. I also had a poster of “Junior” in my room for years. Think Casper–Soooo hot. Oh, and this is my favorite quote below.
10. The Big Green
As a big soccer fan myself, this movie was on probably 4 times/week at my house. Loved the goalie/such a sweet story.
