"Keypers, keypers, what's inside those keypers?" After re-watching the TV commercial from 1986 we've been singing this all day.
Yummm, we loved this ice cream! It was so colourful and tasted amazing, but then it just disapeared. Which is possibly why we want it back so badly - we never had a chance to say a proper goodbye.
Glo Worms glowed in the dark. That was enough to make us love them. And miss them.
This children's TV show is still in our minds, even though we haven't seen it since the 80's. There must be something about it which leaves a strong impact on a child's mind.
We miss those simpler times in the early 90's when Polly Pocket clamshells used to fit inside our pockets.
Aww Mr Benn. What can we say? This gentle, quicky character is an antidote to the slickness of the modern media world.
Our childhood memories of our favourite My Child dolls don't quite correlate to the slightly-creepy images above. We will instead choose to remember the excitement we felt as we scanned the shelves at Toys R Us in the late 80's to find the doll that best resembled us.
It turns out we have lots of budding fashion designers amongst us, as reminiscing about Fashion Wheel got the office VERY excited! The combinations of designs that could be created using the Fashion Wheel were endless and we're still a tiny bit sad that all those *beautiful* (ahem) designs we created as children will never be brought to life.
Popples turned inside out. We still aren't quire sure why, but they did. Like 'Keypers' they also had a theme song that's been stuck in our heads all day - if you'd like to join us here is the brilliantly 80's TV advert. Just as we were going to press we discovered that, wait for it, THE POPPLES ARE COMING BACK! Apparently they are getting their own Netflix series in late 2015. This is very exciting news indeed.
