There are things that make you cringe when you think back to elementary school, like your awful haircuts or your tacky fashion sense, but there are also moments that you wish you could time travel back to.

Here are 10 images that will make you miss elementary school. These images will have you also missing the simple times of the '80s, '90s, or early '00s.  

10. Do you remember when walking into a place like this made your heart flutter with excitement?

It's the same feeling you had when you saw your crush. A trip to Dave & Buster's or any other arcade place was always a good time.

Also, this was the only reason that you'd go to Walmart with your parents and not have to beg to stay home.  

9. The books at the Scholastic book fair were okay, but the school supplies and other cute things were the best.  

And you always bought these, because they always tended to disappear.

Even though these erasers could barely erase a faint pencil mark.

8. Gym class.

These pinnies smelt really bad though. You just hope the sweat of the winning team will rub on you.

Also, the parachute game was the best. If you were the cat in the 'cat and mouse game', even better.  

I know that image below opens the floodgates for some of the best memories of your life, even though you almost lost a finger.

7. At the time it seemed annoying that teachers forced you to become friends with people, but that's how we met some of our best friends.

6. Valentine's Day was either heartbreaking, heartwarming, or led you to develop a new crush.

Sometimes you got one that only made sense to your parents.

The 'Dawson's Creek' Cast Reunited And It'll Make You Wish You Could Go Back To Capeside

Dawson's Creek was one of the most iconic shows on television in the 90s. It was basically all of our first glimpses of what teen drama looked like, and even though our lives were nothing like those of Capeside, we sure felt like we were a part of it. Personally, I was always a fan of Joey Potter. She had such an interesting backstory and I felt really bad that she lost her mother. I was always on Team Pacey too, so the fact that they ended up together was everything we wanted. Dawson's career obviously turned out okay and


Founder Of Toys 'R' Us, Charles Lazarus, Has Passed Away At 94

Going to Toys 'R' Us was literally the highlight of our childhood. Each and everyone of us would run through those sliding doors and would immediately turn into little Tasmanian devils and tear through the store as though we had no knowledge of manners. The reason that we got to enjoy this epic experience was because of Charles Lazarus. Lazarus founded his company in 1948 and every since he has watched his company grow. That is, until this week. The first toy store he opened was not called Toys 'R' Us, but instead "Children's Bargain Town." He knew that the


10 Snacks From Your Childhood That You Didn't Realize You Can Still Get Today

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it
