School could be a less than fun experience sometimes, and it was always worse whenever someone in your class had much better supplies than you did. While we were stuck with pens our parents took from hotels, or pencils that had been worn down to a nub, all the rich kids got to have these 10 items that made us feel like we were lame.
Man, remember white-out? I just had to scratch out my mistakes with pen.
Even more fancy were those white-out rollers that you could use to cover up entire lines (or in the case of the rich kids, write things on your binders).
How about those "reinforcements" that you could use to fix ripped holes on pages?
Gel pens were super colorful, and super expensive.
These next few things were the Mercedes Benz of school supplies...
White erasers were so, SO much better than those terrible pink ones.

The board game itself is listed for hundreds of dollars online and while I love the game, I don't know that I could justify paying that much for it.I mean, it's a classic, but I just can't justify it. Luckily for me, I won't have to. Because even though we all complain that everything old comes back, this time it's actually a good thing.
Are the toys that kids play with today really "toys?" Can a drone classify as a toy? The answer is no. They're gadgets, and yes there is a difference. When we were growing up, we had to have imagination. We were given a yo-yo and told to "have fun." Really? With this piece of plastic on a string? But we somehow managed and now we're (kinda) well-rounded adults. These were some of the toys we had growing up, and even if you don't remember them now, you will after reading this list. 1.
