7+ Pics From Our Childhood We Haven't Thought About In Years

Do you ever allow yourself to go down memory lane and wonder whatever happened to all those nostalgic items you once loved? I do that sometimes.

I think it's fun to remember the good ole days, especially now when the world seems to have gone in an unusual direction, to say the least. I think these pictures will bring on a serious case of nostalgia in a good way.

1. Rotary Phone

OMG, talk about a blast from the past here. The rotary phone. Ha, ha! Wasn't it fun dialing all the numbers and hearing the sound? I think so.

2. Popples

This was my absolute favorite plush toy that I had as a child. I wanted one so bad my sister got it for me in Italy. I miss him.

To be honest, I'm still not sure what these creatures were supposed to be, but they were cute!

3. Tamagotchi

If you had this digital pet back in the day you were really the s**t. This was like an introduction to computers for kids then. Oh, the memories.

4. This Coin Holder

Pinterest

If you were responsible enough to get some coins from your folks, I bet this was probably your very first coin purse. Practical? Not really.

5. Flip Phones

Pinterest

It seems like it hasn't been that long since we had our very own flip phone. But yet...it does. Ha, ha! These were fun to flip open. Obviously the pink Razr phone was the one most sought after by girls back in the day.

6. Furby

Pinterest

Every '90s child got swept up in the Furby craze. Am I right? If you didn't have a real pet you got a kick out of watching this guy.

7. Poppers

Reddit | ParaBellumBit**es

I vaguely remember playing with these. I dunno really what the point of them was but it was a perfect fake hickey tool. I kid you not. LOL!

8. Bead Bracelets

Pinterest

And speaking of jewelry, bead bracelets just like these were all the rage not that long ago. Especially if you had them in a variety of colors, you could wear a stack and create a rainbow on your arm.

9. Pound Puppy

If it wasn't my Popples or Furby then this guy was my constant companion. I took him with me everywhere. I think I just wore him out. Did anyone else have some of these growing up?

10. Stretch Toys

Pinterest

These bendable guys were so much fun to play with. I remember killing a good number of hours with them. I think I even broke a leg off. Whoops!

11. This Boombox

Pinterest

Pretty much everyone in the '80s had to have a boombox. I know I loved mine because, back then, making mixed tapes was a way of life.

12. Click-Clacks

Reddit | Revodivide

I guess these click-clackers were like the first fidget spinners of back in the day, lol. But if you whacked them too hard they would sadly shatter.

13. Classic Disney VHS Movies

Pinterest

Did you also have a collection of classic Disney VHS movies? I sure did. I actually think I still have some of these hidden away. Now all I need is a VCR.

14. This Jump Rope

Pinterest

I dunno who came up with this style of plastic jump rope. Whoever it was they must've wanted to inflict some pain, lol. Does anyone else remember whipping their ankles with these in gym class or at recess?

15. Marbles

Reddit | ye-boi-meti

Did you also collect marbles when you were a kid? I loved finding all these funky colors. Now, of course, it would be considered a choking hazard. LOL! I guess times were different back then.

16. The Wacky Wall Walker

Pinterest

OMG, I remember how much I loved to throw these on the window and watch them slide down. I had a spider and an octopus.

The only downside was that they got really hairy and gross after like five minutes of playing with them.

17. Sticky Hands

Pinterest

On the same token as the Wacky Wall Walker, these sticky hands pretty much do the same thing. They were equally as much fun at kids' parties, and yes, they also collected hair and dust at an alarming pace.

18. Pull-Down Maps

Reddit | WildSoapbox

Before there were computers and Google, we had these pull-down maps that teachers would use in the classroom. I was never a real fan of these.

19. Tricolored Pens

Pinterest

Who else was obsessed with their tricolored pen? I remember how excited I was when I finally got one. I wanted to use it all the time.

Did anyone else get bummed out when your favorite color stopped working?

20. Stick-On Earrings

Reddit | Pippi3333

Ah, the first foray into the world of earrings. Unfortunately, these stick-on versions never seemed to stick on properly. Ha, ha! What a marketing scheme, even then. I still remember pulling these out of my hair on particularly windy days.

21. Tattoo Chokers

Pinterest

OMG, I totally forgot about these. I was literally obsessed with wearing these back in high school. I gotta admit, I still kinda like them. Ha, ha!

22. These Sandals

Pinterest

Ah, the coveted '80s see-through sandals. Every girl had them and every girl wanted them. I absolutely loved wearing mine pretty much everywhere. Ha, ha! So fun.

Oh my goodness, what a trip down memory lane.

Giphy

I had forgotten about some of these cool items. They really were the big deal back in the day. Right?
