A post earlier inspired me to write this one. I’m curious, what are your favorite toys, fashion items, reading materials from those decades? I was scared shitless of E.T. and got the VHS tape for Christmas one year and threw it in the trash immediately.

Loved my New Kids on the Block barbie dolls. Donnie had a long ass rat tail that I used to braid.

Loved my original NES system and would sit a foot away from the TV playing Duck Hunt. (Which is probably why my eyes aren’t so good now.)

I loved my L.A. Gear high tops with the little key chain tag attached because of course. Also JELLIES! And FEAR STREET!
