mandipandi :  I was sweet valley obsessed. I could read a book in an afternoon and spent my pocket money on them. Mum hated them but they made me good at reading!

STORY TIME! 

When I was younger, my 2 brothers and I, along with some other kids from our neighbourhood would always play in the forest by our house every summer. It was in the process of being torn down to create a subdivision. We would build the coolest tree forts with spare materials that construction workers left laying around, when that section of woods would get torn down.. we would build a new one the next summer in a different area. I remember one summer when I was about 10 or 11, we had built THE most amazing tree fort, complete with a PVC tube “fireman’s pole” we could slide down, a lock on the door, and “windows” made with plastic sheeting. It even had separate little rooms, one of which was the “bathroom” where we had a plastic pail we used to pee in. 

We also “booby trapped” the fort (put certain loose panels of wood in spots, made a door that you had to open a certain way or it would pinch your fingers, and tied a string to our pee pail (we watched wayyyy too many movies like the Goonies and stuff when we were young) 

anyway, one day these mean ass kids came on their bikes to try and steal our fort (one was this degenerate troublemaker girl 2 years older than me) and these two older boys. We were all hiding up in the fort and they were trying to climb the tree and get in, but couldn’t so they started picking stuff up and throwing it at us. The string that was tied to the pee pail was hanging down, so we started yelling things like “ go away, please don’t pull that string or it will break our fort!” Obviously being the asshole kids they were, they yanked on the string hoping it would somehow destroy our fort, but instead the bucket of pee fell down and splashed allllllll over them! When they realized what it was, the girl started crying and they all got on their bikes and hightailed it back home!! 

Literally my favourite childhood memory, I wish kids would still play outside and use their imaginations nowadays instead of playing on their iPads and stuff all summer. 

*sigh*

missviolet92 :  YESSS! Sweet Valley high was the BEST! I went to the library and took out 3 or 4 books and finished them within a week! Also, Pollyanna was the best movie!

 This is the best thread, I forgot about so many of these!

A few of my favorites:

My cabbage patch doll was named Jessie and I actuall still have her in a storage bin in the basement

 

I forgot about these completely, but I remember picking this one out by weighing all the boxes and picking the “heaviest” one lol

My absolute favorite movie, I rented it every time it was my turn to choose. Eventually I alternated between it and Pollyanna.

Best TV show, Mr. Dressup!

And of course, who can forget trying to “wrap” the cheap metal swingset and having it topple over! lol
