Yesterday I made my weekly stop at the supermarket and my niece always tells me she 'needs' to see the toys which thankfully she only touches and presses the buttons but never asks me to buy anything. Whilst making my way to the toys through the books, magazines and newspapers I spotted these 2 'Where's Wally' Postcard books which I loved as it just reminded me of my childhood. My niece also knows who he is as my sister bought a small pocket sized one for £1 when it was world book day here and my niece can find him in everyone but I'm sure when she's older and can read she'll look for all the other millions of objects listed at the back. It made me think of all the toys that I came across in the 80s....
1. Rubix Cube~ I was one of those people who couldn't crack it.
3. Pac Man on our Commodor 64
4. Roller Skates, those that were adjustable to fit your feet with straps.
7. Game of Life
10. Gordon the Gopher... his squeeks got so annoying after a while.
We had of course other things that were from the 80s but we didn't get them until the 90s.
Those of you that were around in the 80s, What did you enjoy or remember of that time?
Those of you that weren't what do you remember from the decade you were born?
