Our potty chairs looked like this. We baby boomers look back fondly and will repin just about anything from our childhoods! Even where we made our first tinkles!
THIS is exactly what your "potty chair" looked like! Daddy brought home a book titled "How to Potty Train you child in 24 hrs." You, the book, and the chair...24 hrs? I don't think so...lol lol.
Old school potty chairs looked like this. Being the older sister meant it was my job to empty it out when (or if) my sister finished using it. I was definitely an advocate for early potty training. hahaha
Potty Chair. Mine growing up early 60's

Popcorn Machines, Childhood Memories, Air Popper, 80 S Popcorn, Pop Popcorn, Air Popcorn, Popcorn Maker, Air Popped Popcorn
Everyone had a 'healthy air popped' popcorn maker...but we had to coat it in melted butter to make it palatable!
Air pop popcorn popper ~ I used one liked this up till a few years ago till it broke down finally then I went back to a stovetop hand crank one which I fine way better. LD.
hot air popcorn popper: some of them had a little tray on the top to melt your butter in to pour on top (not sure what they were thinking).
air popcorn popper. ~It hurts when a hot kernel comes out, misses the bowl, lands right between your toes. (only me)
This brings back childhood memories of Dad in the kitchen and after-dinner movie nights! :)
I had a hot-air popcorn maker in college. Still have it - don't use it often anymore.
The family popcorn popper. The air popper is making a come back

Book Encyclopedias, Childhood Memories, Memories Childhood, Internet Encyclopedia, Encyclopedia Set, Remember Growing
This was where we did our research! World Book Encyclopedias. No Internet back in the 50's and 60's!
Encyclopedias. These were our "Internet" and oh how I hated them so! We had about 70 on our shelf and it would take most of your homework time just trying to figure out which book the required information was in and oftentimes you still couldn't find anything very helpful! #Childhood Memories #1970s #1980s
World Book Encyclopedia every home had a set before the computers and the internet! Encyclopedia Britanica was ours.
I actually have these.. they once belonged to my grandma and I couldn't part with these I think I have from the late 60's to the mid 80's. Wonderful!!!
In the 60's....this was where we did our research! World Book Encyclopedias and we also had Encyclopedia Britannica
World Book Encyclopedia set. I looked at our set all the time and then even tried my hand at selling them in my early 20's
These were our Internet--Encyclopedia Britanica. We had the World Book Encyclopedia also.

Waterbeds - My parents had one
1980, Childhood Memories, Ole Days, 1970 S, Ol Days, Memory Lane
waterbeds - my parent's had one of these. I used to sit in one of the corners and watch TV in my parent's room. I would sit in the corner of the bed and push with my feet against the wood to push the water bed part back, so I could lean on it while sitting in the corner.
waterbeds - this one looks like it has been overfilled! We bought ours in 1980 - a king-size bed to replace our full size standard bed. We suffered through ours for about 3 years before buying a standard mattress based king size bed.
the waterbed :) I had one of these almost my whole childhood, a queen size at the age of 6! Lol! I didn't want bunk beds or a canopy, I wanted a water bed!
These water beds were a little after the 60's ...but close enough. .we had one JUST like this! lol

Corelle plates, virtually indestructible, but if they shattered, they shattered into a million foot-piercing pieces! My mom had this patter and a harvest gold one. I still have some of her dishes!
I forget who had these green Corelle dishes ~ Mom had the gold ones, and Dave & Eva STILL have their blue ones! You can't destroy these things!! :)
