So I couldn’t sleep and just finished watching a Facts of Life marathon on YouTube. It brought back a ton of memories from when I was a kid. What things from the 80s do you remember wearing or eating or playing with? Something you haven’t thought about for a long time?
I remember these things:
Plastic charm necklaces:
Ohh…and Pound Puppies:

I remember the pound puppies and the jelly shoes! (I wasn’t allowed to wear them.)
I vaguely remember the facts of life. I was born in the early 80s. 🙂

I was born in the 80s so it’s hard for me to remember if my toys were from the 80s or early 90s but my favorites were:
- Kissing Koolers
- Secret Keypers
- Moon Beamers
- Skip it
- Pogo Balls
