We had an Intellivision and I kicked BUTT at Burger Time and Kool-Aid Man!

I had three Cabbage Patch Kids...Genevive Winny, Seymore Jess, and Irv Wallis.

I had almost ALL the Strawberry Shortcake dolls.

Barbies galore, Pink and Pretty was my favorite.

My brother had a CHIPS big wheel!

I had Smurf birthday party and an Annie birthday party....

I love the 80's. Hate the clothes but loved that decade!
