Alright we are back for one more installment from I’m remembering (blog can be found at http://imremembering.com).
In alphabetical order today…
Charm bracelets – made out of the plastic charms we bought at Claire’s (a 12 year olds dream). I must have had about 200 of them and they were on my keychains – which weighed about 50 lbs.
Fashion Plates – had them, loved them, wish I had saved them for my niece. Hers are not a good.
Fisher Price School desk – I remember these so well. The magnet numbers and letters and the chalk board. I want to get one out now.
Fla-vor-ice – you got like 500 in a box for 10 dollars and they would last all summer and at times until Christmas. Cheap and sugary.
Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop – How many licks?
Scratch n Sniff stickers – with the puffy stickers from Thursday, these were revered.
Slap bracelets – had the sores to prove I owned them.
Slush Puppies – a mall treat for when I had been really really good. (See also: Orange Julius!)
Finally, my absolute favorite thing from my childhood – Sweet Valley High! I was addicted. Like I was at the store the day of a new release..and the store owner knew me. That kind of obsessed. I stopped around book 100 or 110. And now I hear there is a grownup sequel. May have to get some old copies and start reading again.
