What kids these days get in their Halloween pillowcases just isn't what we remember. Here's a taste of the past.
Do you remember the girl version of M.U.S.C.L.E. Men? Adorbz!
When I was wee my best friend had a color change Hello Kitty and I was as jealous as a 7-year old could be. What I wouldn't give for one now.
This squirrel is ready and willing to barf gravy all over your turkey. Thanks squirrel!
Your kids will have no idea what that metal thing on your table is.
If you think about it, Alf was pretty evil what with the threats to drink the cat's blood and all. Didn't keep me from loving him though! What was your favorite late '80s sitcom?
Remember when you could just feed a robot some money and have a conversation? How quaint!
I think this is more of a case of pre-stalgia as technically these don't even exist yet.
Did you go to day camp? Of course you did! Your parents couldn't afford sleepaway camp, whose could? This stuff was like cigarettes in prison, pure currency!
Even though they were even before my time, I harbor deep longings for a vintage silver tree with a rotating colored light. Swoon.

Those were the days; when having the right pair of sneakers could hold social cache for a whole school year.
If you didn't have at least one of these toys as a kid, your childhood didn't count. Don't worry, here's your chance to make it up to yourself. And yes, they totally work.
