Things that remind you of childhood.

Lately I've been buying dvd's online that I can't find anywhere else because they're movies I watched when I was little.

I watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles again last night and kept thinking about when that movie first came out, and how exciting it was to see it in the theatre for my brother and I. Then it just got me thinking about all the other stuff I used to play with when I was little. AND THEN I FOUND THESE:



This was my first makeup kit type thing. It had stuff for lips, cheeks and perfume. I just opened it up and it STILL smells really good. Reminds me of my old bedroom growing up.



This was the bikini I had when I was 3, there are loads of baby pictures with me wearing it-





I think I was the most excited about finding these in the basement:



They were my favorite dolls apart from a Little Mermaid doll I had when I was REALLY young (which I can't find ).


And my grandma had the movie "Buck Privates" and there's a scene where the Andrews sisters are singing "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" which I used to watch all the time and listened to the record.



What reminds you of being little??

The movie 10,000 BC.


Actually, taking Taylor to Disney World reminds me of childhood.

When I visit my uncle's house.
He lives where my grandfather lived before he passed away. When I was young, we would go there almost everyday, and for about a year, a lot my cousins would be there with us. We have a huge family so it was usually about 30 people in the house. Our family hardly ever gets together like that, so it's pretty nostalgic for me.

And whenever I hear a song that is tied to a specific memory of youth. Like today, we were at a restaurant, and for some reason they had that song that's like "Rhythm is a dancer, it's a voice of champions". I remember once my sisters were putting on a little recital to that song in our living room, my mom was filming with the camcorder. I got jealous and ran around them and was dancing around. I tell my mom about that day, and she figures I just remember watching the home video. But I specifically remember everything.

Ohmygod, I had those same Aladdin and Jasmine dolls. I don't have a lot of the stuff that I wore when I was little. Somewhere is a box with a few things that I'll pass on to my kids, but most of it was passed on to younger cousins and stuff.

Uh...things that remind me of childhood....Well, since you bring up buying old DVDs online, I recently bought season one of The Secret World of Alex Mack. In third grade I was *obssessed* with Alex Mack. I still have some old school work where I use anyway possible to tie Alex Mack into whatever the project was. I was so excited to get home to watch it after I bought it, that it was disappointing to realize how retarded the show seems now.

Haha, I watched The Secret World of Alex Mack too. I was snooping around on youtube a few months ago and found an episode of it and watched it. Yes, it's amazing how we liked really stupid things as kids. I used to watch the Power Rangers for God's sake.

Oh, I forgot that the Spice Girls' first cd reminds me of like 6th grade.

Jake mentioning songs reminds me that when I hear disco music I remember skating (roller rink style) from when I was about five to eight years old.
Taylor says "you used to skate to everything" when I mention a song.

The early 90's Nickelodeon shows always remind me of my childhood. You name it I watched it.

I still have probably a couple of Sherbet Fountains a year, brings back the memories.

These remind me of going to visit my Gran and Grandad:

ohhh man. pogs!

I used to have a huge set of pogs, and then someone stole one of my heavy pieces, whatever those were called. I remember being so sad, cuz it was really pretty and gold.

Also, Mary Poppins, I used to watch that almost once a week. There was a time when I watched it every day for a few weeks! =P

Elmo. Catching any segment of Sesame Street works, but I have a soft spot for Elmo and (Super)Grover.

Slammers! I think. I used to get free pogs in the mail, but they were cheap ones that had educational messages like "don't do drugs" and "save the earth."

Lol, I still watch the reruns on Noggin!

How about Salute Your Shorts? Sometimes I find myself humming the theme song.

Heck yeah, I remember Salute Your Shorts. "Camp Anawana, we hold you in our hearts. And when we think about you, it makes me wanna fart!" I looked it up on IMDB one day and it surprised me that it only had 15 episodes. It seemed much longer.

I wasn't really a Pete and Pete fan, I don't know why because I watched nearly everything else.

Leonie, I used to have a red cape when I was 4 (at least that's how old I am in the picture) and I used to run around the house yelling "Super Grover!" So yeah, I get that.

I loved Bert and Ernie too.

I never remember watching Sesame Street (though I must have at some point), but remember when that stupid Tickle Me Elmo came out (I think I was in fourth or fifth grade) and all of a sudden Elmo was the coolest thing? God, I remember my friend Meghan giving me an Elmo backpack for my birthday.
