Your kids may believe you walked uphill both ways through the snow, but here's proof your childhood was much better than you make it sound. How many of these did you have? There may be a few that have lasted long enough—or are making a comback—to make your kids' lives pretty great, as well.
1. Pokémon cards
Did you catch 'em all?
2. Parachute day in P.E
Best. Day. Ever.
What was better than drawing squiggly lines and filling in with color?
4. Video day at school
It was always a great day when the teacher walked in with one of these.
5. Speak & Spell
And then ET used it to phone home. #mindblown
6. The Original Glo Worm
_via Best of the 80's
Friday nights have never been the same since
8. Oregon Trail
Nothing was worse than naming one of your children after your secret crush and then having them die of dysentery.
9. Scented markers
...Or coloring the tip of your nose with a scented marker.
10. Game Boy
Even though it was the size of a brick, you never thought life could get better.
11. Lite Brite
Oh the possibilities!
12. The pencil machine
Every time you put your money into the pencil machine you hoped you would get the cool one.
Even the logo on the cover had bumps!
14. The Carlton Dance
15. Pizza day at school
16. Math blocks
Math time was never more fun
