I was OBSESSED with them! My mom did not understand my obsession but would humor me with a few pieces once in a while.

You know how some things can take you back to when you were a kid in a heart beat. Well this is one of those things for me.Although, I don't own any plastic beauties these days, I can guarantee you if I were to see them at a store tomorrow... I would pounce on them like hairspray on a Valley Girl.Seriously. 
So.....now its your turn. What takes you back to 1980?

I must have been a little couch potato back then, but it's definitely the television programming from those days that takes me back to the 80s! I still get nostalgic about my faves: Rainbow Brite, Care Bears, My Little Pony, Fraggle Rock, etc. Great stuff!

I LOVED these! I just posted about an 80's theme party. We had scratch n sniff's on the candy buffet

OMG I so remember those!

The kids are wearing neon multicolored sneakers now and think they are so original!

Ha! I had a pair of neon orange hi-top Converses with yellow interior that you rolled the tops down.

I do remember those however I don't think I shared the same obsession, lol! Hmmmm....young 80's reminds me of my jeans that had rainbows and roller-skates embroidered on the back pockets- I SO hearted those!! Late 80's makes me think of Wham- The Jitterbug and all my neon pink and lime green lace ribbons I used as headbands, my lace and fishnet gloves and tons and TONS of those jelly bracelets stacked all the way up to my elbows!!!
