It was a time of big hair and dangerous playgrounds. When the one phone in the house was attached to the wall and the seat belts in your car always looked stiff and brand new from lack of use. As a kid growing up in the 80’s, it would have been hard to believe that in less than 30 years your video games, camera, boombox, flashlight, notebook, newspaper, television, library, camcorder, VHS player, and 20 other things would all be on one handy little device that fits in your pocket. And yet, if you get someone who was an 80’s kid to start reminiscing, they will go on for hours about all the fun things that made their childhood the best.
