What is really sad is that I know exactly what you are talking about, still!

I dont even know how to explain this, but it was this toy instrument I had around 1984, it was white, kinda like a long stick, and in the middle of it where all these buttons to make different musical notes, it ran on batteries, anyone remember this? all the kids on my street had one as well

Did you ever see that SNL skit where one of the girls doing the news had this toy, where she had to rub it , stroke it, and pull it. Each time she did it, the machine would yell harder, faster, yeah,uh, harder, faster, etc. It turned sexual as the machine got more excited. It was hilarious and reminded of those kinds of toys you are talking about.

Ah, the 80s...

Barbie's horses ... I had the black one and the palimino.

The dayglo fad lasted about two minutes, but every girl had to have a dayglo sweatshirt or t-shirt in my school. I wore lemon...

The assymetrical haircut.

The Joshua Tree.

I had about three pairs of Jelly shoes in different colors. They left these horrible impressions on my feet, but I didn't care 'cause I was hip! Or so I thought.

Bono got rid of his '80s mullet long before I got rid of mine.

I have stronger Atari and Intelevision memories than I do of Nintendo or Colecovision, etc. Sadly, I still recall that my favorite play call for Intelevision football was 9-3-1-7, a screen pass to the receiver at the top of the screen.

I did play a lot of Tecmo Bowl, though, I would be the Giants. Lawrence Taylor was fast enough to block PAT's and Field Goals....and, if Simms was having a bad day, I could put Hostetler in, he was too fast to get sacked.

For arcade games, Ms. Pac Man, Galaga, Elevator Action, Decathlon, some insane game called Tutankahman......Scrambler.....dragon's lair.....etc...

In remember Koosh Balls, too, but I think that was more of a 90's thing.

Tough to top the CD player, when it comes to serious replies to this.

The rubik's cube is one of the first things that enters my mind when I think of the 80's. Nerf stuff existed before the 80's, I believe, but I loved that stuff.

The Joshua Tree was a great 80's invention, sure. So were Neumann padded and fur lined football gloves, perfect for playing football in the winter.

Like a lot of you, I could go on and on......
