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!

    I felt like the coolest kid on the block with my record player – though I only had "Mary had a Little Lamb" and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" to jam out to.

    Fucktards! I got shoes older than you brats! I shall submit under a new category of chiver to be called Elder Chiver (EC). I was born before fotos were invented, so there are no pictures, I shall submit the toy we all used: a stick. That is all.

    (ps: we are a spinoff from AARC…American Assoc. of Retired Chivers)
