A few of my friends posted this link on Facebook and I LOVED IT! It brought back so many memories and honestly I had forgotten about some of my favorite toys and accessories of the 80's! The website lists "53 Things Only 80's Girls Can Understand" but I just picked 15 of my favorites. I would suggest reading the whole article though, it is fabulous! READ IT HERE
