Oh, the 80s. Shoulder pads were big, and hair was bigger. We rocked out to icons like Prince and knew all the words to The Safety Dance.
Feeling nostalgic enough yet? Here are 10 things that will make you feel like that 80s kid again...
Juice, soup and hot chocolate were safe in these, as they came with a handy bowl too! From Disney princesses to Transformers, were you one of the cool kids at lunch break? (You got extra points if you had the matching lunch box!)
3½-inch floppy disk
Ever let out a laugh when someone asks you why the save icon is that weird square thing? Today, Windows 7 Ultimate would fit in 1,422 of these.
The Dewey Decimal System
Before the internet and Wikipedia, project time was spent scouring through libraries. We knew the pain of growing up trying to find the right book in the library (but we miss those quiet hours).
Garbage Pail Kids
Parents hated them, schools banned them, and we loved them. Half the fun was trying to keep them from being confiscated.
Back to the Future
Great Scott! No one predicted how this franchise would set in the hearts of kids worldwide! Back to the Future was a cultural phenomenon, and the highest-grossing film of 1985.
The terror of the home phone
Most of us were not lucky enough to have a phone in our rooms, which often made for awkward conversations in communal areas ... in front of your entire family. And remember the sheer terror of having your crush's father pick up the phone before they could get to the phone?
The ultimate mixtape
The perfectly crafted mixtape was a work of art. Timing and flow was everything. They could take hours, or days, depending on who you wanted to impress.
Saving up our pocket money was totally worth it. Simply the most "bodacious" shoe you could own... complete with a California number plate!
More than a toy, it was possibly one of the most defining fashion statements of the 80s. So much so, even 90s kids try to lay claim it.
Super Mario Bros
Nintendo sold over 40 million units of the game in the 80s starting our love affair of sliding down flagpoles and kicking turtle shells. Got the theme tune running through your head yet?
