Blast from the Past

Pinterest has officially sucked me in. You can pin anything you want on there. I am a nostalgic person and I thought I would share with you some of the things I was thinking about as I made my "Childhood" board on pinterest. I was born in 1985. Those were the days, right? Those of you who were born around that time, enjoy!
 Lets begin with the Puffalump. I loved this thing! I had a lot of stuffed animals at the foot of my bed and this was one of them. Cute!
 Polly Pocket was the neatest thing to me! It came with two small plastic dolls. It was supposed to all fit in your pocket.
 Doodle Bear was also cool to me. It came with 2 markers and you could draw on it and wash it, then start all over!
 And this is noneother than the best game ever! HA! The one and only, Dream Phone! I am guessing if you had this game, you totally understand what I'm talking about!
 American Girl Dolls! I had Kirsten. I was addicted to anything that was by that company. I adored it. I still have the Kirsten doll and still am pretty anal about anyone messing with her! HA!
 I also adored American Girl magazine. I looked forward to each month so I could receive it in the mail. Lauren, my niece, actually likes this magazine too. She is 9.
 Beanie Babies were all the rage in the 90's. I can't remember how many I had but it was quite a few! I still think beanie babies are really cute, but don't collect them anymore.
 Here's the Yak Bak. What a cool contraption this thing was at the time! It recorded things and you played it back of course!
 Babysitter's Club. I really liked the Babysitter's Club, but I also read the Little Sister books when I was little the most. I had a game, and a few collector books. I also loved watching The Babysitter's Club show.
 Behold, Jelly Shoes! I had a few pairs of these! My Nanny always got jelly shoes for me when we went to Walmart together! Mama was not a fan of these shoes. But we loved 'em! :)
Last, but not least, LISA FRANK! I adored Lisa Frank anything and was also in the club. I'm sure if you loved Lisa Frank, you were in the club too! :) I hope y'all had fun taking a blast from the past with me! I am still a kid at heart. I have to say though, my how things have changed! Now kids love things like iPods, computers, TV, and video games! Ha! I also loved Lite Brite, Magic Nursery pets, Fisher-Price Doctor kit, play kitchen and so much more!

But whose light is in the law of the Lord and who meditates on his law day and night. Psalm 1:2

LOVE the flashback! Did you know Jem is on the Hub on tv now? I was giddy with excitement.
I am convinced things were better back then. Life was easier in some way.
Continue to pin things while listening to Debbie Gibson, Tiffany, and New Kids! :)
