13 Things That Every 80s Girl Will Immediately Recognize

- Page 1

If you grew up in the 80s, you are pretty lucky. Everything was just totally radical in the 80s! We had the coolest hair, the best slang and obviously all the best clothes. It's safe to say we grew up in the best decade.

Being a girl in the 80s had a lot of perks too. We had a bunch of cool stuff that kids today wouldn't understand. How many of these things do you recognize?

Popples

For some reason the idea of a toy that could fold up into a little ball was super appealing to us?

Charm Bracelets

They were loud and complicated, but you knew you had to have one!

Colorful Barrettes

No fashion choice was more important than how you would accessorize your hair.

My Little Pony

We all had our favorites, but we wanted the whole collection anyways.

Cabbage Patch Kids

Not only would you get a doll, but you'd have to have a whole bunch of outfits to dress her up in! If you were really lucky your Grandma would knit you some sweaters for her.

Stick On Earrings

All the style with only twenty minutes worth of commitment. Because then they would be gone forever because they are just not that sticky.

She-Ra

Giphy

No one was cooler than She-Ra.

Even though She-Ra is pretty awesome, there are still more things that we all remember...

10 Iconic Toys From Your Childhood That You Couldn't Live Without

Let's be honest for a second, it's the internet, there is no one here to judge you. When you were growing up, what did you care the most about? Was it your family? No, that's just what you said near Christmas so you would get good gifts. Was it your friends? No, they weren't always there for you when you needed them. The thing we all cared about more than anything was our elaborate and extensive toy collections. Sure, does that make us all a little bit materialistic and selfish? Probably. But those are the facts and there's not much

13 Dreadful Life Lessons You Learned While Playing 13 Dead End Drive That Haunt You To This Day

Listen, board games were a very important part of our childhood. Dream Phone was played almost every weekend, Fireball Island was played on those days when you had the energy to set it up, but there was one game that trumped them all. 13 Dead End Drive was what happened if you mixed Clue with Mouse Trap, and also added in some good old-fashioned sabotage. The object of the game was simple: Survive. The backstory of the game (not that anyone really cared about that) was that a wealthy woman died and now there is a big fight over who

5 Fashion Items That Have Been Successfully Resurrected, And 5 We'd Rather Stay Dead

Fashion is one of those things that seems to have a cycle that everything follows, so the same things become popular every few years. It has been happening since the dawn of fashion really, but it's just a lot weirder when it's the stuff you grew up wearing. When you see a young kid rock the same style of outfit you wore when you were their age you suddenly feel like you've traveled through time. You'd expect for fashion to evolve over the years, but it honestly doesn't. It just spins in circles, occasionally scooping up some new additions or

Stirrup Pants Are Back In Style And We Don't Know How To Feel About It

We've all been there, the mall with our moms impatiently waiting to go to the toy section. She wants us to buy some new pants for school because we tore three holes in them last week. She says you have to try things on because you are growing too fast and she isn't sure what size you are, but honestly, there is nothing you want to do less than that. You rush through everything quickly, finding the size you need and then it isn't until years later when you look at the pictures of your childhood that you realize what
