  1. What a walk down Memory Lane!! I knew most of them. I shared your blog with a friend at work who’s from the same generation :o), and we both got such a kick out of it. Thanks for sharing, Jawan!

  2. I’d completely forgotten about the friendship pins on the shoelaces. HA! Brought back a ton of memories!What about He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, or after-school specials?
