We have to admit that the 80s was a fantastic time to grow up. Nobody seemed to judge our fashion sense and the world was booming with new experiences. We were on the verge of greatness, the kind that we have become accustomed to today but back then, it was refreshingly new and exciting stuff. Every time that we thought that things couldn’t get any better, more cool stuff come into our lives. Here are some of those things that you are sure to remember:
They came in such a variety of styles and colors that we literally had endless possibilities.
2. Boom Boxes.
This was how we finally got to tote our music around with us in style and with plenty of volume!
These guys knew how to throw the rhyme with such awesome style and rhythm that we were instantly hooked!
The World Wrestling Federation was kicking out the most insane characters we have ever seen. Here is the Ultimate Warrior and Hulk Hogan. I watched this all the time!
5. 3D Movies.
This was the dawn of a new age of movie making. Jaws 3 was my first 3D flick.
6. Board Games.
When the TV wasn’t occupying our time, we often engaged in hours playing board games.
7. Lava Lamps.
These were revived in the 80s and everyone just had to have one again!
8. Rock Shirts.
These shirts were worn until they turned to dust! Everyone had a favorite Rock Star to idolize.
9. White Tigers.
For whatever reason, these gorgeous tigers were on posters and prints throughout the house. We just thought that they were beautiful!
10. Lunch Boxes.
These were what every kid wanted to have for school in their favorite movie or character. These days, they have been replaced by plastic or squishy bags.
