Great post!!! Even though I was a young girl in Italy in the 70s I recognise all but one of the items listed. It is really a small world!!

I was in high school in the 70's but certainly remember a lot of those..especially the Dr. Scholl's wooden shoes. So uncomfortable but we were told they were so good for our feet. I wonder if today that is why my feet hurt all the time as an adult. lol

Default nothing like a trip down memory lane

First of all......I still love my Holly Hobbie

Second.....I never thought Gopher was cute

Third......Physical wasn't about aerobics? OMG

Fourth....Yes, I had wings and it was feathered....but that was after the Dorothy Hamill

OMG....this was fun reading that...and looking at the pictures. Thanks for the post.

This was so cute and fun!
I was actually an older teen in the 70's but I wore guachos, ponchos and knickers and fish net stockings!

A well meaning aunt gave sister and I a Simon game. We politely thanked her but snickered about it behind her back later. Then we got addicted to the thing! lol!

I remember my niece's Holly Hobbie sleeping bag too! How cute was that!
I also remember having dreams about this guy.... Bobby Sherman! I still have a picture of him on my refrigerator. My grand daughter asked me who he was.... I just told her he was an old hearthrob. lol

Thanks for the blast from the past.. I have a lot of stuff saved..

Rockflowers - cousins of the Dawn doll were too cool with their own records.
Sunshine Family - pretty sure these were 70's
Love Notes (name right?) - dolls with notes on their hands & feet, gave mine away
Cynthia doll - one of my favorite dolls
Crissi's friend Velvet.. think Crissi was from the 60's
We also had U-Haul trucks. Wish I would have saved those.

These look like the 2nd version. IIRC the 1st ones were on string and parents took them away because they were dangerous. The balls flew off of the string.

Donnie and Marie dolls with those pink and purple satiny shredded outfits.
I was too old for these when they came out. The little girl I used to baby sit for was really into them. I can still hear 2 year old little Tina singing what she thought the words were lol

I still have my original. Years ago I got the whole set from someone that didn't want them.

Who doesn't lol
She's in one of my celebrity mags this week.. think it's In Touch. Pretty sure they're using that picture.. they're saying they want her for dancing with the stars.

How many people remember Philip McKeon from Alice?
I remember writing him for an autographed picture. Still have it somewhere.

Wow, I feel old now

I loved Gopher (yes, I'll admit it).
My older sister cleared up the Physical issue pretty quickly
I had posters from Tiger Beat all over my walls
Loved my metal roller skates and going skating
I loved Hollie Hobbie and had the lunch box and loved Strawberry Shortcake too!

I remember that "Love's Baby Soft". It smelled so good back then!
Little House is still one of the best shows!
Loved the friendship pins!
I wanted to marry Luke Duke!
Watching the Wizard of Oz was a big deal at my house. Wish it was still like that!
I still wear out my Grease soundtrack and DVD
I LOVED Judy Blume books and read them all! I was just talking to my husband about them the other day

I just don't think our kids will have these kinds of memories and it's sad! But I so enjoyed this!
