22 Experiences Literally Everyone Had At Their Grandma's House

- Page 1

Grandma's house was a pretty magical place for any kid. We'd get stuffed full of whatever food and candy we wanted, and the rules we normally had to follow at home didn't apply. But those aren't the only things we'd experience when we visited our Grandmas, chances are you saw all of these things every time you went over there.

1. Doilies absolutely everywhere

Basically every flat surface had at least one of them, usually more.

2. Getting so excited when you saw this tin sitting out

Because who doesn't get excited by cookies?

3. The feeling of betrayal when you opened it and saw this

It would trick us Every. Single. Time.

4. Distracting ourselves by playing with this instead

No clue why this was so much fun, but it was.

5. Sitting in the living room on a couch that looked like this

Why did literally every grandma have a couch like this?

6. Though it was probably covered in plastic for some reason

In the summer your legs would always get stuck to it.

7. One of these would always be sitting on the coffee table

Kappa Books

But we all knew better than to even think about touching it.

8. Any Kleenex boxes would have a crocheted cover for reasons we still don't understand

Was she worried they'd get cold or something?

9. One of these would be in some random corner of the living room

We'd always play on it, but otherwise we're pretty sure it went untouched.

10. No matter what year it was, her TV looked like this

If you were really lucky it at least had a remote, otherwise changing the channel was your job.

11. And you were probably stuck watching her shows


Of course she loved us, but nothing would keep her from her shows. Nothing. But at least the next thing on the list would always make being bored worth it.

The Original Barbie Dream House Is Back And Our Inner Child Is Screaming With Joy

A lot of us grew up playing with our barbies. They were a way to explore the realms of our imagination and no matter what you think about Barbie's visual aesthetic, you've got to admit that being able to be creative with her story was pretty great for kids. Sure, her look has raised a lot of controversy, but the fact remains that a lot of us enjoyed playing with Barbies and had countless stories to go along with each one. I remember when I was a kid, one Christmas my parents brought my sister and I into the basement


They Told Us They Could Erase Pen, But It Turns Out Blue Erasers Have An Entirely Different Purpose

Going to class and using pen was a pretty confident move. What, you don't think you're going to make a mistake? I spell my own name wrong on a regular basis, how can you be so sure of yourself? Well, then came those blue erasers. The so-called pen erasers would help even those who are overconfident in their spelling abilities. In theory, they were supposed to remove the pen from your paper, or at least that's what we all thought. Instead, we would be left with torn paper and illegible notes. I was always terrified of writing in pen, so


20 Statements You Haven't Heard Since You Were A Kid That'll Flood Your Brain With Memories

Growing up, there are always phrases that are pretty specific to the time period. It's the same for every generation. There's always those statements that seem so relevant at the time, but looking back it feels ridiculous. Think about it, our parents didn't have flat screen TVs, a Nintendo, or the internet, those only became popular when we were kids.

As MTV evolved over the years, it kind of lost that magic that made it the go-to location for awesome music, and instead has turned into a reality TV station. Really the only reality show we wanted to watch was The
