    I had to have this book after seeing the write up on saloncom'm not ashamed to admit that almost every one of these products passed through my over privileged suburban only child youth at one time or another and it was great revisiting them I raced home from school to watch Dark Shadows and safely survived both lawn darts and trick or treating in a plastic mask with teeny tiny eyeholesYou may have been learning about love in the back of a Chevrolet but this nerdy girl was playing Mattel Electronic Football while listening to Dr Demento The book loses one star for presentation Cheap crappy newsprinty pages and black and white photos do not compare with my memories or the great slide show featured on salonI would have gladly paid extra for glossy pages and color photographs My favorite line? Love's Baby Soft smelled a lot like what we imagined pink unicorns sunning themselves on rainbows would smell like It did It really did

    I felt I had to read this when I saw this phrase in the description If you owe a couple cavities to Marathon candy bars Okay maybe the Marathon candy bar didn't GIVE me cavities but it was the best way to lose a loose toothLoved this pop culture journey into my childhood I'm gonna zoom zoom zoomah zoomBazooka Joe bicentennial mania Crissy dolls Dawn dolls Dynamite magazine The Electric CompanyI laughed so much at this It was great

    If I could give this book ten stars I would By far my favorite read of the entire summer This book is truly only for those of us who grew up in the 70's and 80's It is a total trip down memory lane The authors write in a snarky voice that adds great hilarity to each vignette I laughed so hard I could not even breathe What was my favorite segment? McDonaldland? Dungeons and Dragons? The Official Preppy Handbook? It's so hard to choose just one

    Such a fun readbut after reading I was wonderingwhat about colorforms?

    I read this book in a remarkably short time and I often struggle to read through books if the author's writing style doesn't facilitate the topic they write about This book is written as a bunch of short maybe 2 or 3 pages at most vignettes on a whole bunch of topics that anyone who grew up in the 1970's and 1980's should be able to associate with and they're written like People magazine so no strange but seldom used terms or anything like that to worry about With topics such as After School Specials Dynomite magazine Bazooka Joe Videos on MTV Six Million Dollar Man Action Figures Battle of the Network Stars and uisp and uake cereals if you don't remember most of these you're probably not the right age group to enjoy this book but one cannot call this heavy reading Also you won't finish this book and feel enlightened by a new subject but you will probably be smiling about the memories these things bring back when did I become my parents' age? The author has done a pretty good job of researching but some of the items on their X Tinction Ratings are incorrect for example the original versions of The Electric Company and Schoolhouse Rock are available on DVD yet isn't acknowledged and others such as Playing Outside still happen in many parts of the US maybe not in Seattle where the author is based but that may have to do with the weather than child abductions Still this book was enjoyable and you can read a few vignettes and pick the book up later without having to refresh where you left off You can also flip to a random page and read a vignette or two without having to commit to reading I enjoyed it

    If you grew up in the 70's and 80's this book will make you smile and even a few laughs Funny without being condescending it is a short book with a couple of pages devoted to each thing There were a few items I had never heard of There seems to be an emphasis on candy I'm really surprised there is no mention of pet rocks This is just a cute feel good book that will only take you a few hours to read

  7. Brian Brian says:

    This book took me literally an hour to read It featured products TV shows and ideas from the 70's and 80's It was very short and a lot of the references had no meanin to me however there were many that did Pop rocks Stretch Armstrong If you were a child of the 80's like me this book will bring back some nostalgia

    Fun trip back into the 70s and 80s I knew most of the items listed It was good to get proof of something my sister didn't remember Interesting to see what happened to the items that disappeared or maybe just became hard to findSome of them are still sold today and I never would have thought they got their start so long ago Of course if you think about it it makes senseFor a trip down memory lane get the book If you're one of those people who hates reminiscing don't buy it

    Are you a child of the 70s and 80s? Do you remember After School Specials? Did Jaws keep you out of even the bath tub for a month? Can you remember when Sea Monkeys were coolok neither can I But if you wondered what happened to a lot of the culture that our generation held near and dear Whatever Happened to Pudding Pops? might just be what you are looking for Sure you can look all this stuff up on the internet now but Cooper and Bellmont spice things up by not just telling us where all our stuff went but reminding us what those things felt like when we were just kids and it seemed like all of this would be around forever From scratch n sniff stickers on our Trapper Keepers to the perils of lawn darts and metal playground euipment there is than enough to overload your memory banks There were some things I had never heard of – Blythe dolls Bar None candy bars Spire Christian Comics There were plenty of other that I very fondly remember – Mattel Electronic Football MTV playing music Connect Four Choose Your Own Adventure books And there were a few things I have desperately been trying to forget about – Scott Baio Silver Spoons hoopskirts eight tracks Scott Baio If your childhood didn’t form in those formative years this will at least clue you in to what we held near and dear I would give this book three stars on those grounds However if you actually participated in this era you may find yourself laughing out loud as often as I did as you pursue the anecdotes of each of these little gems So for me this was an entertaining trip down memory lane

    Two things made this book an absolute winner for me the impeccable choice of pop cultural touchstones and the way the authors were able to encapsulate so much of the flavor of the times in each commentary This is Beer Frame meets À la recherche du temps perdu
