I mean, they have this rich memories in my life and it's very good. Certain things which I miss is GI Joe's, small humanoid, kind of a Barbie as the girls used to have. The boys used to have these GI Joes and I miss them because they are not available in India. Do tell me if they are available where you stay. So in India they're not available everywhere and I miss them like any thing

Hello, worms. Oh, my rosh. I remember when those first came out. I guess if you're going to look at it that way pound Puppies. I had a Pound Puppy, and I watched the cartoons. Care Bears, Care Bear stare. Now my kids are young, and they're just starting to get back, and they're just starting to get into heroes. So, like, ThunderCats are back. I played with thundercat toys and teenage mutant ninja turtles toys. Heman

I don't know. It's just not meant to be. So congratulations to you. My son actually still collects Hot Wheels. He's got tons of them. We love them. So I feel you on that GI. Joe's. I don't know. I'll have to look around and see if there's still a thing here in the States. I'm in the United States, so I don't know if there's still a thing here. I'll have to look around

I convinced myself that it was only for people who were, like, mathematicians or whatever. Like, no, just not my thing. I moved on to other things very quickly. Yeah. Good times. Good times. ThunderCats Soft. Do you remember that cartoon Sharma? She was my favorite. That was, like, my hero. Yeah. So many good things are making a comeback. I love it. I love that garbage pill. Kids made a comeback

@Astroality (I remembered this photo, where my brother & I are wearing our candy necklaces. 😆)

And so then I pretended it was my magic wand. Sometimes I think of this magic wand. And then I also had this watch that I'd never seen anything else like it. It was a dome. And inside, the second hand was angled up, and at the end of the second hand was an airplane

Um, I'll check out the the photo. I think I still have one of those magic wands you were talking about. And those candies ring pops. They're still there. I don't know if the the candy on the paper is still there, but I know there's still candy necklaces and bracelets. You just have to look for them. But if you're not looking for them, they're probably not going to find them. They usually come out around Halloween

It's Sharma. Princess of Power. That was Heman's sister. Yeah, there's actually a remake of that on, like, Netflix now, I think. And it's totally into the garbage pill kids. Remember the garbage pill kids movie? It came out in the 80s. All that so much fun. It's really hard for me to walk around target and look at all the toys and reminisce about how fun toys were

@JordanTepper

She was literally, like, my favorite superhero growing up. Like, I remember being so sad when that cartoon didn't get played anymore. So now I'm going to have to go and I'm going to have to check Netflix and see if I can find it. I had the wands that you pictured above. I had one of those when I was a kid, too. I have to say, though, I didn't think about using it like a magic Wanda

You, Princess Carla pino. If you had that wand and you used it as a magic wand, you would be a pretty, pretty princess sitting in your princess castle right now. And those candy necklaces and bracelets, you could find them on Amazon. Find, like, a whole mess of them at Amazon. If you have Cracker Barrel by you, you probably can buy them at a Cracker Barrel store, too

I have the power in my hands all this time, Jordan. Why did I become an adult and grow up? I could be sitting in my pretty, pretty candy castle right now. What the heck? How did I mess that up for myself? Life path redirected. That was not good. Dang it

@SeekingPlumb

And you know what else I missed too? Like, food candy wise. It's not really candy, but kind of. Do you remember those bullet popsicles? They were like, red and orange at the same time. They were so good. Especially because here in Arizona, it gets so hot, like in the summertime. That was, like, one of my favorite summertime snacks. Now I want all the nostalgic candy. I do know that Pop Rocks are still available. Weirdly

@Astroality @SeekingPlumb

You. I love those. We call them like either Giant Everlasting Gobstoppers or Giant Jawbreakers. But yeah, I know which ones you're talking about. And you remember it took you months to get through them. And it was kind of like a status thing at my school to not only have one, but just keep licking it and getting through and showing everybody the different flavors. Then inside it was like a sweetheart. Something like that. I'm the candy man. I love all this nostalgic candy

@Astroality

But yeah, I mean, seriously, you can get like all the candy that you've been talking about can be found on Amazon, and I mentioned it on Christina's response. I'm actually in the process of opening up a candy store, probably within the next couple of years. I got to raise some money, pay up some debt. But I'm going to have a candy store and soda shop. It's one of my dreams

@JordanTepper

Look how much I've crushed this so far. Yeah. Used to do that all the time in school. So I feel you on that. And now I'm going to have to go to Amazon and just hit up all the candy. Yeah. And I can't wait to be a patron of your candy store. But I also want some homemade carly that you make yourself. Please and thank you. And, yes, in Arizona, it rains very infrequently

I don't know if they still make those, but I love my Barbie Townhouse. What else did we have in childhood that was they still make slinkies. I like slinkies and I like yoyos. They still make slinkies. I don't know about yoyos, but there's this general store that's up the street from my office. And if you go in there, you'll find all sorts of classic toys and things that we enjoyed way back in childhood, even before we were born

@MsColes77

I didn't ever really get into Shoots and Ladders. You know what game I liked? I liked the game Aggravation. And I loved the game Sorry. Those were, like, my two favorite board games. I hated Monopoly because I felt like it took forever and I just could not hang with it. It took way too long. And people would always get mad if I quit in the middle. So that was monopoly was like a no for me

I want to be a jet fighter pilot. Not that I want to drop bombs, but this the big I want to be able to do loop, do loops, and straight up and the power behind the machine pulling back on the throttle. Anyway, yeah, I wanted to be a pilot, so I loved this watch
article image placeholderI had this watch.  The plane went around with the second hand.  The things I got rid of. | Bracelet watch, Two by two, Watches

Okay. The Watch super cool being a pilot. Also super cool. And, yeah, I only did the jawbreaker thing, like, once because I was like, oh, my God. That was way too much work. It took way too much time, way too much effort, and I didn't really see the results or satisfaction from the completion, so I only did that, like, once. Yes, Pop Rocks are a must. Just for the pure fact of now

My favorite , my Balooooo

We would pick up small berries and small stuff from the trees nearby, and we would pick up small utensils and we would cook our own food and we would literally feed each other. That's the memory that I have actually of playing as a child. I don't remember if I have really played with toys as such. But, yeah, maybe one toy that now I think of, that I have always loved is teddy bears. And I remember one of my favorite teddy bears

I think it's even cooler, though, that you've kept it all these years and that you still have it. I hope that I don't know, I just hope that someday when your son gets to have his own child, that you get to pass it on. Like, what a cool thing. That is awesome. I loved hearing your story. And you know what?

And he was just, like, so happy that it was, like, killing it on the grass. And I even told him, I said, I like your whip. And he's like, thank you. He's like, I'm so excited about it. And it was really fun. So I'm glad that you brought up the remote control car because you're right that they still to this day bring people so much joy and so much delight

I think the new ones have, like, these safety things on them now, but the old school ones were, seriously the best. That's where I found my passion for baking, and I was able to spend a lot of time in the kitchen with my mom, which was great. So, favorite toy? All time favorite Easy Bake oven. But thank you for this, and thank you for sharing that Rubik's Cube had a birthday

I have seen The Hunger Games, but I don't remember. It's been a while since I've seen any of those movies. I don't quite know who you're talking about. But hey, anytime you can remind someone of someone in a very popular movie, I guess that's a good thing. But thanks for letting me know

@Rosebud

I'd always get the strings all wound up and it would make my brother so frustrated and angry with me. But, yeah, I forgot about Popples. Those were awesome, too. Popples fur skins. Easy Bake oven. Wow. Yeah. My favorite thing in the Easy Bake Oven was the brownies. I always burnt the cookie for some reason, but I love to make the brownies, and it drove everybody crazy because I'd always make them all the time. Wow

Glenn this is the guy I'm talking about. I had to research it. His name is Beatty in the movies, and he's, like, super smart, and he, like, saves their life when they're in the it's the movie where they have to go into The Hunger Games and it's the giant clock. And he figures it all out. He figures how to he's, like, really good with electronics, and he figures out how to break the whole system

Hey, thanks for letting me know who you're talking about? That's jeffrey Wright. Who's one of my favorite actors. He's been in so many different movies and TV shows, and it's a it's a huge compliment to be compared to him in any way. So I really appreciate that. And now I feel like I should watch The Hunger Games over again because I haven't seen in such a long time

@GlennPriceMann

Yes. You should definitely watch them over again because I'm going to do the same thing because I haven't seen them in forever and I loved them when they came out. In fact, I think I own them somewhere. I did not know his real name and I probably should have said that, but yes, thank you for telling me. You remind me of him so much and specifically, like that character in that movie because he's so smart, but he's also super witty and funny
