80s Questions:


Did you own a LightBrite? Yes. Technically, it was probably one of my brother’s, and by the time I got around to playing with it, many of the bulbs were gone. But I loved that thing.

Play with a Strawberry Short Cake doll? Yup. It was a gift from one of my aunts. I don’t know how much I played with it, but I loved the smell.

Played with GI-Joe doll? I’m not sure. My brothers certainly had GI Joes, and I probably played with them, but they didn’t leave a big impression.

Had a He-Man or She-Ra toy? No.

Owned a Slinky? Yes! I still love Slinkies! I’m not sure how long they lasted when I was a kid, though, since they always seemed to get tangled when I played with them.

Had a Jem doll? No.

What about a Cabbage Patch Kid? Try three. My neices play with two of them now. The other is dressed up as Captain Picard and lives in my home office.

Owned a Big Wheel? No, but I always wanted one.

Traded Garbage Pail Kids? Yes.

Had a Popple? A who?

Had a Pound Puppy? Yes, they were so cute!
