When I think of my childhood so many random memories spring to mind. I love how a smell, a song, or a phrase will pull me right back into a warm fuzzy moment from years past. I think it's wildly cool that some of the things I remember as a wee girl are surfacing again for the new generations or have transitioned with me through the phases of time. Here are a few things that give me the warm fuzzies:
I'd Like To Buy The World A Coke - 70's Hilltop Sing Song Advert
Kool Aid Commercial
School House Rock
Hanker For A Hunka Cheese
Lip Smackers Lip Gloss
Do you remember the super giant sized ones? I swear they were like the size of a toilet paper roll, and everyone had one!
Banana was my favorite! I actually stole one from the drug store when I was about 7 and felt so guilty I had to go back and pay for it to ease my mind LOL!
Speak and Spell and The Little Professor
I LOVED these things! Maybe this was the start of my fascination with typing ;)
Super Star Barbie
I thought she was the most glamorous thing I had ever seen! I married her to my Ken in the blue and orange jumper with orange sunglasses, they were perfect together!
Free To Be You And Me
I remember getting so excited to watch this in school. We got it at least once a year in grade school music class as a 'free' day. The other movie day was always Mary Poppins.
So there you have it, a few ditties from my early years that I will never forget. What childhood goodies stand out in your mind?
