Comics. For sure. And hotwheels.
@missreesemarie Reese beat me to this one! Hot Wheels for sure! They were the first thing I pulled out of the attic when my oldest(now 8) was able to play with toys. Now I've stepped up my Hot Wheels action, @joshjohnson . Like you dropping the 10 at ChuckieCheese, we set up my point and shoot on the floor as they race across the wood floor and slam into each other. She loves playing the video back frame by frame to do an accident recreation. (ok, honestly, I do too!)
Our daughter just turned 4. Through an odd set of circumstances, some relatives had recently shipped my 1970s era Barbie Townhouse. It had been in an attic all this time and in great condition. Decided that it would be more fun to put it back together for her birthday. Totally cool/weird to pass it along. She loves it.
No kids, but I'd like to share "Singing in the Rain" with my nieces.
@joshjohnson so many things came back around from when I was young. But I was the tomboy with parents that wouldn't let me play with boy "stuff." I was over the moon when I had 2 boys & Transformers came back!
Classic. I was always scared of the man inside of the mouse costume!
M*A*S*H They both watched reruns with me and now they both love it.
I was at Chuck E. Cheese for my niece's birthday party. I haven't been there since I was a kid. All the games took me right back to my youth. It was an awesome feeling! I spent so much money on tokens to get her a toy that probably cost $2 to make, but to see her face light up makes it all worth it!
My love of Journey REO and all the old bands. We've been to many of concerts of theirs.
80's kid's shows & cartoons! Chase already gets super happy when I cue up Fraggle Rock.
My little pony✨💓
For me it's my granddaughter. Already did The Rolling Stones with them years ago. We love sharing movies and music. She's amazed at how much I know about all genres
I rock at skee ball. I can kick any kid's butt.
Shared what a box score means today.
I love that game!
Just tonight, my six year old and I were singing along to No Doubt together in the car :)
Yep 80's tv for me too... And movies and music and games from back then too. My kids love Voltron and Star Wars, The Muppet Show and so many other things that I loved. And of course, they love Chuck E Cheezus. (That's how they say it.)
In Salem (Oregon) there is a little arcade that is a blast for even grown ups. It's called Wunderland and all the games are operated on nickels. I took Gage there when we were up in December. It was such a blast and it really took me back to when I was his age. And pshhh twenty bucks lasted us over an hour!
I love the fact that my kids enjoy some of the very same things I did as a kid, but those things are now "25th anniversary" editions, and "vintage" -- makes me feel old to say the least.
I didn't have the best upbringing, so I would spend a lot of time pretending. I was a mermaid, Jane from Tarzan, some kind of adventurer or another. My daughter, almost 3, is at the pretending stage so I try to encourage her and pretend with her because I was raised that thinking that was wasn't logical and stupid, not normal. Now we can be mermaids together.
my action figures 👊
I've been sharing my love for old school rock n roll with Emma since she was in the womb, playing Queen, Aerosmith, BTO, The Beatles, along with some soul, the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, etc. toss in some Beach Boys and MJ for good measure...:) she already shows excellent taste in music...something I'm quite proud of! :)
I miss you a lot. So many things came back around when I was Teen... Actually 13een...
I used to love to go rock hopping as a kid. Jumping from rock to rock along the seashore in Massachusetts. Its a game to see how far you dare to jump and how fast you can go. Now there is a place where I have gone a couple of times with my son, who is eight. It will be a great day when he can out-jump me!
I was sung songs to go to sleep, so now I sing my son songs to go to sleep. Though, more often than not he prefers me to sing one direction, rather than the Barney song I once loved so much. Kids these days!
In Maine, we only have one amusement park. I went there as a kid and later as a camp counselor. It is rather small and a little dated, but provided plenty of fun memories. I just took my daughter there on Saturday and we had a blast!
Played skeeball with my son (12) there at a four year old's party first time at a chuckie cheese but the skeeball brings me right back too!!!
Where I come from we Mom's think they should hand out bottles of vodka on the way in to CC!! Hope you had fun! (PS- I like to share football games with my kids).
Music,absolutely. That,and lying on the driveway waiting for falling stars...I swear there's one every 30 min.
I love to share my love for the 80s, gotta make sure to raise my kids right lol ;)
Magnets. Totally magnets. My son and I both love them and can't get enough! Though, my daughters are much less enthusiastic. I don't know why... LOL
Im still a kid but I hope I can share my music with my kids when I have them :) music and cartoons. Not the new Ben 10 cartoons but the old Tom & Jerry, Scooby Doo etc.
Ummmm...that place has changed A LOT. lol
The old tv shows, you know, the ones that were worth watching . . . Get Smart, Knight Rider, Different Strokes, Family Ties, A-Team, MacGuyver . . . So on and so forth. The funny thing, they seen to like those better than most of the newer shows! : )
Books. Of course. The feel, the smell of a book in hand, turning pages. The delicious magic of loosing yourself in words strung together to create a story you simultaneously read and live. Sneaking more reading time with a flashlight under the covers. Not even specific books, although there are those, but the experience of books.
My kids would all rather watch older cartoons(think Scooby Doo, Looney Tunes, Flintstones etc.) than the new junk. I am proud to say they also know who Alf is and they've watched Dinosaurs( I da baby gotta love me). Some of the new things just really aren't worth letting my kids see. Innocence is bliss.
I wanna go there so bad
@joshjohnson Hoping my comment was not misconstrued and removed but that maybe I messed up somehow...My daughter still loves Skee ball this takes me back, nice shot☺
My 3 year old daughter is raw at climbing trees 😄 just like I was😉
Been trying to get our kiddos to a cake walk (so far they haven't been, but hopefully in a few weeks!). Was a part of childhood from age 3-12, nearly every summer and late-autumn Saturday (townsfolk each bring a homemade cake or sweet, baked goodie. All goodies are placed on tables in the center of a numbered walking ring. Folks buy tix (25cents each) and walk around the circle while a marching band plays. When the music stops, leader draws a ticket. Whoever is standing on the number drawn, wins a cake. Like musical chairs, only sweeter, and with multiple winners. Was a great way to share good food, good music, good company! One Sat my sister won 6 cakes! Lucky one! :)
