Retro, Smetro..

So this random blog actually began in my head earlier this week when I was at Hallmark (one of my favorite stores) and saw Rainbow Brite stickers. For those of you who were young girls in the 80's you may remember these dolls/show. Anyway, it transformed into a list of things from the 80's that I'm glad have returned or I think should return for future generations. Feel free to add (or comment) to this list if there are things I forgot:

  • Rainbow Brite

  • Strawberry Shortcake

  • Jelly shoes and bracelets

  • He-Man and She-ra

  • All great Saturday morning cartoons (Smurfs, Snorkes, etc.)

  • Leggings

  • Cabbage Patch Dolls (although they never really did disappear)

  • Fisher-Price Pocket Rockers (although the MP3 player kind of negates the need for these, but they were so cool!)

Oh the list could go on... please feel free to comment on these and I will compile them into a future blog post. I can't wait to see what you miss form the 80's....
