20 Poochie Toys And Accessories That Will Make You Flash Back To Your Childhood

- Page 1

Some toys manage to gain such a huge following that looking back, seems a bit excessive. For example, we all had to own a yo-yo, but why? Its just a piece of plastic on a string. Or the mayhem that surrounded Cabbage Patch Kids, they were just dolls right? Wrong. They were an icon of society.

Another one of those toys that we all became inexplicably obsessed with was Poochie. What's a Poochie? Well obviously it was only one of the very best toys in all the world! If you grew up in the 80s, then you will absolutely remember seeing the commercials all over the TV. If you were lucky, you probably had a bunch of different Poochie products all over your house.

How many of these Poochie items do you remember begging your parents for?

1. Poochie AM Radio

Because you know what kids love? AM radio.

2. Poochie Pencil Set

The size of this packaging seems very excessive for the product inside...

3. Poochie Notebooks

I mean, where else are you going to use those pencils?

4. Poochie Paper Doll

Paper dolls were easily one of the greatest things we had back in the day. It was surprisingly fun to just gently set paper on top of other paper. It sounds silly, but I swear it was fun!

5. Poochie Story Books

You can't have the toy without a story book to read while you cuddle it. That would just be unreasonable!

6. Poochie Secret Flower Note Maker

This was a little more complicated. You had a flower maker and then would press it down and hide little secret notes in it. Because handing someone a flower is much more discrete then handing them a note.

7. Poochie 'Overnighter' Case

Perfect for a sleepover if all you wanted to bring was your Poochie doll because it is only 6" big.

8. Poochie Stamper Paws

You get to make a little stamp out of your smaller version of your favorite dog, marking up all those lovely pieces of art you were making.

But those aren't the only crazy items based on Poochie you could get. Honestly, they just kept getting stranger...

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


Fireball Island Is Coming Back, And It's Bigger And Better Than Ever Before

We all became completely obsessed with the board game Fireball Island when we were kids. The game has become one of those relics from our past that is now worth a good chunk of change. 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.

There was no event, no holiday, and no party that had the capability to bring the same amount of joy as a trip to Toys 'R' Us could. Okay sure, you can argue that Christmas was better, or your birthday was more fun, but think about it, Toys 'R' Us visits could happen at any time, but holidays are once a year. Okay, call me crazy, but it was absolutely the most fun outings ever, even if your parents didn't let you buy any toys. Why was it so fun just to wander around a store? Well, this may change
