Remember "Incredible Edibles"? You made them and then you ate them - they were like plastic?
And speaking of Halloween, going trick-or-treat with your friends instead of your mom or dad? And throwing together a costume from what you had lying around VS paying $20 at Wal-Mart? (And because Wal-Mart didn't exist)
"Little Kiddles" dolls (the pre-cursor to Polly Pockets)?
Wearing dresses only to school? (We girls weren't allowed to wear pants in my county until I was in the 5th grade in 1969- how absolutely unfair, since we walked to school)
The only bought part of my Halloween costumes were the masks and most of them were simple and not character ones. I did have Morticia Addams one year.
I had Skediddle Kiddles.
You could wear slacks to school but only in extremely cold weather and you wore them under your dress and took them off when you got to school.
Remember when all male teachers wore ties and dress shirts?
