Fads of the 80's

I realized that one of my children was a child of the 80's and I found this list of fads during that time. I'm afraid to say that I rememeber all of these when she was growing up and enjoyed many of them as much as she did.
  1. Baby On Board Signs
  2. Boom Boxes
  3. Rubik Cube
  4. Skateboarding
  5. Trivial Pursuit Game
  6. Video Arcades
  7. Wrestling - Although it has made a comeback in recent years, nothing even compares with the classic years of the WWF, and the NWA.
  8. Break Dancing
  9. Cabbage Patch Dolls
  10. Roller Skating

I'm really not sure if we will even remember what the kids of today are into. Seems like kids are so much older now than they were when my kids were growing up. Kids just aren't children anymore. We are trying to turn them into little adults. Scary!!!


  1. HA!

    Every once in a while, I'll see one of those "Baby On Board" signs.
    I LOVED my boom box - wonder where it is now?? I'm sure I took care of it.
    Trivial Pursuit is a HARD game.
    Never did get into roller skating - guess I missed the boat on that one ;)

  3. I'm a child of the 80's too, and boy do I love reminiscing - thanks for the memories!
