Oh geez, baby toys back in the day!
childhood memories! :)
I made a fantastic Goodwill find the other day: a vintage Fisher Price Activity Center--I totally remember this from when I was little. I'm sure I spent enough time staring at it that it is permanently ingrained in my memory. Edgar is loving it (= So..."what's the dilemma," you might ask. Here it is: There are so many toys out there, that I really only want to buy toys that are (a) super rad, and/or (b) nostalgic from my childhood. But...does buying mostly awesome old-school toys rob my child of a shared nostalgic experience with his peers in 20 years? Is he going miss out on fond memories of Leap pad and Zhu Zhu Pets? Or...perhaps my generation is so focused on awesome vintage toys that they WILL be the nostalgic toys for another generation. What do you think?

I'm not entirely sure what prompted this "blast-to-the-past" 80s inspired post... maybe it's the leg warmers and neon sunglasses that have made a come back in the fashion world... or maybe it's just a dose of good nostalgia? Regardless, here are the top 10 things that I think should make a comeback from my childhood decade... 1) Lite Bright... I loved these things. Maybe it's because the twinkling lights remind me of Christmas? 2) Hypercolor T-shirts... These things were awesome. And I totally remember wearing mine in 3rd grade with my Guess jeans. Although... these shirts were not as awesome when you came inside all sweaty from recess... think, major color changes in the arm pit area. 3) Troll Dolls... Okay, okay... maybe these guys don't really need to make a comeback. They are a little creepy looking now that I think about it. But I honestly remember troll dolls being the go-to birthday party gift from 3rd-5th grade. 4) The Wonder Years... This show was by far my favorite childhood tv show. Kevin Arnold was totally swoon-worthy and I thought Winnie was just the absolute coolest. My family watched this show together every week... this and Rosanne. 5) Teddy Ruxpin... I mean, what kid wouldn't want a teddy bear to read books to them, while creepishly blinking it's heavy eye lids? Okay, so again, this is one that looks a tad creepier as an adult... but I blame that on scary movies with talking, nightmarish dolls named Chuckie. 6) Super Mario Bros... Best.game.ever. Forget all the new Play Stations, XBoxes and Wii's... old school Nintendo was the way to go. I was really awesome at Super Mario Bros... and I'm pretty sure the first time I ever said a cuss word was while playing this game... I got in trouble. I bet you've already started humming the Mario song in your head... duu, duu, duu, dupdupdupduu, duu, duu, duu... 7) Slap Bracelets... These things should totally make a comeback. Maybe in leopard print? I would wear them. 8) Big Bangs... Fine... we won't bring back the big bangs... or the Aqua Net hairspray. But I mean, can we talk about how awesome these bangs are? Hairstyles from the 80s took some serious effort... and hairspray. 9) Girl Talk... If Super Mario Bros is the best game ever, then Girl Talk is a close second... then Mall Madness. Girl Talk was the game at every single slumber party I went to from 4th-6th grade... with super intense truth questions like, "What boy do you like?" or crazy dare-devil dares like, "Put an ice cube down your shirt and let it melt." I know, right. And if you didn't agree to the terms of your "truth or dare" card you had to wear a zit sticker for the rest of the game! Scandalous. 10) The Breakfast Club... Last... but certainly not least... one of the best movies of all time... The Breakfast Club. I think I need to watch this soon... next weekend, maybe. There you have it... the decade of my youth. Linking this up to Oh Amanda's Top 10 Tuesday.

Who could forget the zany Captain Kangaroo (Bob Keeshan), Mr. Green Jeans and all those who said "Good Morning, Captain!" (such as William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and others). Captain Kangaroo was on CBS for nearly 30 years until 1984.
Starting in 1955, Bob Keeshan appeared on morning television as Captain Kangaroo, for decades a beloved character on a popular children's program.
Captain Kangaroo (Bob Keeshan) I loved the moose with the ping pong balls falling all over the place!
Captain Kangaroo was a morning TV staple six days per week. He lived in his Treasure House accompanied by Mr. Green Jeans, Bunny Rabbit, Mr. Moose and Dancing Bear. He was gentle, funny and beloved. His huge pockets (hence his name) always had carrots for Bunny Rabbit and lots of surprises. His portrayer, Bob Keeshan, commuted on the NY Central railroad where my uncle was a conductor. I was thrilled by this.
Captain Kangaroo (Bob Keeshan), Awwh Captain Kangaroo! He was a happy guy!
Captain Kangaroo (Bob Keeshan) ... and Mr. Greenjeans

Captain Kangaroo... the Ole days
