oh yeah---all the girls had a crush on rex smith for about a minute...:p
what was that one song he did?...
my crush was on donny osmond (i prefer dark hair)...
and i had that silly marie osmond doll...
....but i didn't ask for it- my grandmother bought it for me...

i also had rainbow stuff everywhere- sheets-pins-stickers-stationary-etc....

it's hilarious how many of these ring true- right?>?

Anyone have a pet rock? Or what about those striped socks with the toes? (actually have seen those around again! ) Anyone listen to the Bay City Rollers? Or Bee Gees? I loved Andy Gibbs! Hilarious! I also loved Fleetwood Mac's Tusk! (late 70s!)

I'm an 80's baby, and yet I remember a lot of those things. The tape recorder, stickers () and the beloved sit 'n spin....oh those hours spent making yourself sick, good times.

i didnt have a pet rock.. but i had sea monkeys!!!! the kind that was advertised in comic books.. i think i ordered some.
they died a quick and painless death tho lol
what else,,, yah i watched little house on the prairie, was that in the 70s?

when i was like 6 or younger, i used to wear my mother's scarf as a skirt and clop around in her bruno magli high feels, hold a wooden spoon like i'm singing and pretend I was DONNA SUMMER. i really worked that donna summer thing. my parents took pix of me and also recorded me singing. like it was a huge joke.
anyway, when adults asked me what i wanted to be when i grow up, i always said "disco queen"
i was sooo into ABBA and neil diamond, thanks to my parents.
at nite watching SOLID GOLD was a real treat for us kids... and of course there was the muppet show, and the electric company, the donnie n marie osmond show..
as for toys, i had a strawberry shortcake lamp and tonnes of smurf memorabilia!
i read alot of enid blyton, beano and archie comics.

So many of these ring true, scratch and sniff stickers, smelly coloring pens, the recording music from the radio.... - but I was just discussing with my sister when she got a pair of Corkease (or corkies as i thight they were...) shoes - similar to the ones that are out this summer. I was too young for them then and now just not in the right place...
