Halloween costumes came in a box, with plastic face masks held on by elastic. The stores had stacks and stacks of boxes to go thru to pick a costume. We never got these...ours were homemade, but I sure remember loving to look through them.

Remember This, Childhood Memories, 70S, Remember Chewing, Medicine Cabinets, Elementary Schools, Stuff Remember, Ahh Remember, Orange Flavored
Aspergum. A chewing-gum that had aspirin in it. I remember having to chew this after I had my tonsils out at the age of 7 in the early 70s, by doctors orders. Today, it's recommended that no child under the age of 16 take aspirin. Aspergum was removed from the market in 2006.
Used to get this for my migraines in elementary school. The teacher kept it in her desk and I had to ask for it.
I think I would chew this even when I didn't need it, because it was the only gum in the house. Had a very pleasant orange flavor.
Totally remember chewing this at school when I was getting or getting over a cold.
This was always available in my gram's medicine cabinet!!! I loved it!
I remember this. It was orange flavored.
Loved this stuff remember all too well

80S, Flashback, Blast, Color, 1970S, The Originals
the original Dr. Scholl's... Wow I loved these. I got a new pair every spring...they were not traction-worthy but I thought they fit better than any other shoe ever
Everyone had the Original Dr. Scholl's in the 70's. Worst shoe to wear when its been raining. I can't tell you how many times my heal slipped off the back. YOUCH.
Once you got accustomed to the hard sole and the big bump these shoes were great. I fell off of mine more times than I want to remember!!Everyone had the Original Dr. Scholl's in the 70's
everyone had the original Dr. Scholl's; i had these in beige...think it was the only color at first :)
the original Dr. Scholl's... and to think people who had a pair of these would always say these shoes are so comfortable . hmm walking around on a piece of HARD WOODEN SOLES? not my style of comfort
everyone had the original Dr. Scholl's .,... and God help you if your foot ever slid and you stepped on the back of the shoe on the hard wooden edge!
the original Dr. Scholl's...wore them everywhere! Had a pair in every color!
the original Dr. Scholl's... the most uncomfortable shoe on the planet

Pom-pom footies, oh HAD to have these, and if one of my balls fell off....sadness...
PomPom Socks. The little pom pom stuck out just over the back of my shoes.
Ankle socks with pom poms --- yup, so they wouldn't fall down in your shoe
Childhood memories - Pom pom socks - I forget all about these.

Things Remembered, Cloth Diapers, Childhood Memories, Safety Pins, Baby Boomer, 1960
*safety pins* not just 1950's, I used them 1978-1987 with cloth diapers on my kids. Disposable diapers didn't come on the market until the late 70's.
*safety pins* ~ actually they are "Diaper Pins" ~ that's right, we used to use "cloth" diapers and pin them pin with these cute diaper pins that locked. I'd usually have to run them through my hair or a bar of soap so they would glide more smoothly. Disposable diapers were for car trips, vacations or the well-to-do. The "very" rich used a diaper service and a Nanny did the pinning.

I had one of these weird little f*ckers and didn't even remember until I saw this. Lucy loves the pic. May procure one. Apparently the kids share my affinity for weird stuff.
This is my monkey Mike! I took him all over with me as a kid and when his arm came undone, I was gotten another "pink" monkey... which wouldn't take Mike's place; so, his arm was stitched up and I still have him today!!!
My cousins had one of these when we were kids...

Childhood Memories, 90 S Kid, Ole Days, Plastic Bubble, Memory Lane, 80 S
Another dangerous toy from the 70's we survived! haha. Plastic Bubbles - I loved the smell of this stuff but the fumes were a killer and I'd get dizzy if I played around with it too much! It's no wonder since we we were breathing in polyvinyl acetate and acetone.
Plastic Balloons...Put a little pasty goop at the end of the straw, blow gently ... and presto, a dry plastic bubble. They could last for a couple of days before they shriveled into a crumpled ball of celophane looking stuff.
Another dangerous toy from the 70's! haha. Plastic Bubbles - I loved the smell of this stuff but the fumes were a killer
