If you were a kid growing up in the 80s you probably wanted all the stuff in Shawn’s post on Being an 80s Kid. Of course your parents disagreed and decided to save their money and not get you any of it. But you must admit this post brings back memories so go check it out….and read the comments too!

Here is a snippet of the comments I left him.

I never got the pump shoes (too expensive) but I did have the parachute men (actually I stole them from my brother). I went through the trapper keeper phase too.
But I think my watch was better than yours?I had a Radio Watch. And all the kids in my school thought it was the Knight Rider watch and would grab my arm and try to call Kit (or Karr too!)
