Lets take a trip down memory lane. TheCHIVE needs your help! (32 Photos)

Happy Friday, Chivers. I can’t think of a better way to cap off a week at theCHIVE then to let Chivers reminisce over their childhood. That’s right, the toys, the games, the eccentric outfits and hairdos. Pretty much anything and everything you can think of I would like to post on a weekly basis. There’s just one problem. Amazingly the internet is a bit thinner on nostalgia photos and content then you might think. And lets just say no new nostalgia photos are being posted anytime soon (funny thing about the past…it’s over).

So it’s up to you Chivers to help me populate the page every week with all your favorite parts of your upbringing. I want it all. Even if it’s just a photo of you wearing your favorite Care Bear outfit. Nothing to be ashamed of, you were just a stupid kid, right (Wink-wink, you were epic once). Anyways, I want it. And if all goes well we will post your childhood memories every Friday. Let the nostalgia flow through you!

Chive On!

    • nixt3r

      Try to achieve that level of awesomeness with a toy version of the MP3 players we have today. I think not. Kids are are really missing out these days.

      If you were born after 1990 you don't get to say you feel old yet. Sorry.

  • Zac

    Where is the Talkboy from the home alone movies?

  • JDR

    #30 is from "Contra" . . . .an OUTSTANDING game

    Wow I still have #25 floating around my house somewhere. It is one of the things I still have that my granddad gave me before he died.

  • Sam

    #17. Smurfs are stupid. I am glad no one has made a movie about them to tap into the trend of re-hashing crap from 20 years ago to coerce money out of the nostalgic crowd.

    • Fool of a Took

      I have some bad news for you…

    • smurfmovie2011

      movie trailers state otherwise good sir

    • green

      Wrong again, Sammy Boy.

    #7 I bought one of these for my 3-year-old nephew for Christmas this past year. It snapped on his finger the first time and he started to cry. Oops.

    • amrith777

      Good thing it was only his FINGER O_o

    • green

      Tell him to man up. It's not a real toy til it draws blood.

  • matt

    #8 ftw

  • mojo2975

    #13 the original Zelda, i would spend hours playing it.
    #22 playing tetris on the game boy was awesome.

  • MZC

    #31 Summer just ain't the same without the icicle.

  • GreyGhost9

    I wonder how many of these older things do our fellow young Chivers not even know about?
    #26 i might still have those in my basement, and #31 i got nostalgic everytime i have one.

  • misschris

    #31 – I have a whole new bag in the freezer at home Mmmmmmmm!
