A field trip to Liberty Science Center today sent me back in time. To the ’80’s. Why? Because of the Rubiks Cube exhibit!
So of course I went in search of some of my favorite toys of the ’80’s!
Etch-a-Sketch was a nice linear drawing tool. I think the shaking was the most fun.
Rubiks Cube was a good challenge, could get one side the same color but that’s about it.
Definitely loved my view finder. My favorite was Disney’s Fantasia.
Simon Says I was pretty good at. Maybe that’s why my number memory is so strong…
I kind of miss my Snoopy Snow Cone machine.
I had one CareBear. And that’s all I wanted was the one. The yellow one.
Ah! This calculator! I used to use this and my moving adding machine when I played office.
Loved, loved, loved my Strawberry Shortcakes. Still love the smell. Yes, the ones at my mom and dad’s still smell.
I was obsessed with Cabbage Patch Kids. In fact, my first one looked like the boy on the bottom left except with light hair. His name was Oscar Florian. And I had one had that looked like the girl on the top left. Her name was Delta (something…). I guess I shouldn’t even say were or was… since I still have them. They are at my mom’s too.
And finally, my favorite Barbie. Peaches & Cream. Joc and I would set up all the Barbie furniture and then be done with it. The setting up was the funnest part (yes, I say funnest).
What were your faves?
