are you a child of the 70's?

Recommended Posts

crap the pictures didn't post!! I will try to upload the word document...


You had that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a stethoscope that actually worked.




You owned a bicycle with a banana seat and a plastic basket with flowers on it.




You learned to skate with actual skates (not roller blades) that had metal wheels.




You thought Gopher from Love Boat was cute (admit it!)




You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island .




You had either a "bowl cut" or "pixie", not to mention the "Dorothy Hamill".

People sometimes thought you were a boy.




You had rubber boots for rainy days and Moon boots for snowy days.


YEAH! You owned a "Slip-n-Slide" , on which you injured yourself on a sprinkler head more than once. < /SPAN>



You owned "Klick-Klacks" and smacked yourself in the face more than once !



Your Holly Hobbie sleeping bag was your most prized possession.



You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers.



You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon.



You had the Donnie and Marie dolls with those pink and purple satiny shredded outfits, or the sunshine family


You spent hours in your backyard on your metal swing set with the trapeze. The swing set tipped over at least once.

You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color. (Oh yeah! )

You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones with hard sole & the buckle). You also had a pair of salt-water sandals.




You wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really bad; you wore that Little House on the

Prairie-inspired plaid, ruffle shirt with the high neck in at least one school picture;

a nd you despised Nellie Oleson!

You wanted your first kiss to be at a roller rink!


PONG! ("video tennis" ) was the most remarkable f uturistic game you've ever heard of !

Your hairstyle was described as having "wings" or "feathers" and you kept it "pretty"

with the comb you kept in your back pocket.

When you walked, the "wings" flapped up and down, looked like you were gonna "take off"

You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as her friends, Blueberry Muffin and Huckleberry Pie.


You carried a Muppets lunch box to school and it was metal, not plastic.


With the thermos inside some were glass and broke the first time you dropped them.



You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazzard was your boyfriend.




YOU had Star Wars action figures, too!




It was a big event in your household each year when the "Wizard of Oz" would come on TV.

Your mom would break out the popcorn and sleeping bags!


You often asked your Magic-8 ball the question: "Who will I marry.

Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or David Cass idy?"




You completely wore out your Grease, Saturday Night Fever, and Fame soundtrack record album.




You tried to do lots of arts and crafts, like yarn and Popsicle-stick God's eyes, decoupage,

or those weird potholders made on a plastic loom.


You made Shrinky-Dinks and put iron-on kittens on your t-shirts!


You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape player up to the speaker.


You had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat.



You learned everything you needed to know about girl issues from Judy Blume books.

(Are you there God, It's me, Margaret.)




You thought Olivia Newton John's song "Physical" was about aerobics. (?? its not??)


You wore friendship pins on your tennis shoes, or shoelaces with heart or r a i n b o w designs.

You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer.

You drowned yourself in Love's Baby Soft - which was the first "real" perfume you ever owned.

You glopped your lips in Strawberry Roll-on lip-gloss till it almost dripped off.

hahahaaa, you shouldn't! You are like me and barely a child of the 70's! I was born in the 70's but a child of the 80's. Most of these didn't apply to me, but then the occasional one brought back some good memories, like The Wizard of Oz once a year.

Some of them definitely didn't apply to me either...especially the crush on Leif Garrett. Now had it said one of the "Corys" it would've been right on. Ahh the 80s...good times...good times.

Okay I was born in '79 but I had a lot of this stuff in the 80's. Some of it was probably hand-me-downs from my older cousins, but I did have a banana seat bike, metal roller skates, read Judy Blume books, totally did shrinky dinks, and loved slip and slide! And I used to LOVE Solid Gold...lol


What about Lite Brite and Snoopy's Doghouse where you could make snow cones? Anyone remember that? (maybe it's 80's)

OMG my brother and I were on Romper Room when I was little (don't know if that was Cali only?). It was a kids show you could be on for a week, anyway my parents have the tapes and the old commercials are hilarious! The snoopy's dog house commercial is on there and it makes me want to be a kid again..."you can have a lot of fun at snoopy's doghouse"....that was the jingle. Good times!

Oh god! I remember Romper Room and the snow cone machine! Do you guys remember the little plastic dolls that you used to snap plastic clothes on to? I don't remember what the heck they were called.
