and so far this week we've covered the dances, the movies, the music, the clothes, the tv shows, and today - Day Six - we're going to talk about the fads. That's right, every crazy fad I can think of - both awesome and ridiculous.
Ready? Here we go...
I had a teacher who stole these from students and used 'em as stress balls.
Trapper Keepers (Also, Lisa Frank stuff)
Also had the stickers, pencils, erasers and folders.
I was AWESOME at pogs. I had super-cool slammers that were metal and had 8balls on them.
All I wanted was one with my birthday on it. Did they have one? NO. Stupid beanies.
I just HAD to have a pair of these after a friend of mine went to Paris over the summer and came back with a pair.
I was more of a sunflower seed and laffy taffy kind of kid.
Didn't have any of these. Too many tiny pieces to deal with. Plus we had dogs that liked to chew small toys.
I thought she was cool because she was on that show Step by Step.
Had one of these in just about every color.
I've already covered these. My sister had them, and they creeped me out. Evil little dolls with crazy hair. (I suspect that they are the cause behind the belly button piercing craze.)
Slip n Slides
The most awesome thing to do in the world. Well, other than putting Dawn on the trampoline and hosing it down. (I can't believe I never broke a bone as a child.)
Thank God my mother never bought these for us.
I was the champion of skip-it. I could do like 500 skips in a minute. Oh yeah.
Those weird pacifier necklace things
I never understood this one. I did own one, though. It was blue.
Yes. These were almost immediately banned from school due to the whining of wimpy kids being slapped by other people.
LA Gear light-up shoes
I totally had a pair of these for basketball season.
And we can't forget the catchphrases that took over our vocabulary....
|DID I DO THAT?|
Did I forget any?
