I'm actually hoping to start this as a series, but we'll see!! I've been noticing (and reading!) things around my world that are just complete blasts from the past...aka my childhood.
Okay, so I had one of these when I was very little. My sister Shae had a Miss Piggy one and I had Fozzie. I LOVED him. Somewhere in between all of our moves, my bear was lost. I have no clue what happened but I thought of him over the years. When I was in Scotland in '04, it was a rainy, blowy day. My friend Anna and I randomly entered a Disney store and I found a new Fozzie- I knew I had to have him! My sister Rachael also fell in love with my Fozzie, so I found one online for her- we have (almost) matching bears to this day!
Sesame Street- How Crayons are Made
I watched hours upon hours of Sesame Street as a child and for some reason, this is the one thing that sticks out. I have NO idea why.
Um...yummy and sticky, as a kid the best thing ever...'nough said!
Tootsie Roll Pops
Haha, oh yes. The Indian shooting! When I was about 10-11, a rumor circulated within my circle of friends that if you had a tootsie pop wrapper with a WHOLE Indian shooting, you could send the wrapper to the TR company and they would send you a free lollipop. I tried it..a few times (haha). Didn't work, but I think I did get some nice letters & coupons from the company. LOL.
I remember using these for hours upon hours. I claim them from my parents' house once Rachael gets too old for them and/or once I have my own kids. Two weeks ago, I was SO excited to find these exact ones at my school- I demonstrated how to use them to my students and they are enjoying them too :D
and of course, the books of my youth....which were honestly and truly taken away as PUNISHMENTS because I loved reading so much...
What are your favorites? Remember any of these???
