Way back in the day, before DVDs and streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and HBO reigned supreme, people used to watch and record movies on VHS tapes.

These were also the glorious tapes that brought the magical world of Disney movies to our tube televisions. We all had a stash of these VHS tapes at home while growing up, but when VCRs became obsolete, they no longer had a place in our lives.

However, some of us found it hard to throw away such important pieces of our childhood, so we stored it somewhere in our basements or attics and forgot about them.

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.

She's credited as the first female lead of a Nickelodeon show, and because of her they were able to make many other hit series like The Secret World of Alex Mack and The Amanda Show. But Clarissa was truly one-of-a-kind.  I mean, how many people do you know who owned a baby alligator named Elvis?
