It's funny how many of these things I remember. Some I did and some with my kids growing up. (my son had all the ninja turtles and their accessories) BTW, nice looking blog. And also, you have been tagged for a meme. Just go to my page and copy it. Oh, it doesn't matter which one of you do it either. You can decide that lol.

I have exactly half of them! LOL That's because some of those items are for if you were a CHILD in the 80's. I was a teen... a very different list. LOL
