Children of the 80's

Being a child of the 80's, I decided to look up some toys that were around back then. I had most of these myself! Did any of you have them as well? Is there any others you can think of? It was really neat to take a step back in time and check these out! I wish I still had some of my toys from back then, but unfortunately I don't.

I am a 90's baby, but I remember some of these well!

I had many skip its, a nice collection of pound puppies and I was 7 when I learned how to use the Nintendo to play the game where you shoot the duck. or bird. or whatever it was.

I can honestly say the worst toy by far (that thankfully I never owned) was that creepy little Furby doll! All my friends had them and I HATED them lol.

I had four of the six. The first one I didn't have and the ball. I actually had a 70s version of the skip it too thanks to my big sisters. It was a lemom on a plastic thing like a skip it. My mom still may have a few of these toys.

My daughter has a skip it and pound puppies and something similar to a pogo ball that is called a Zoingo Boingo. The difference is it has a rubbery handle on it.
We still have a WORKING original Nintendo...and super nintendo and a gamecube.(we aren't totally behind the times)
As a child, I had the lemon skip it and that's it. I was obviously neglected and behind the times.
