FADS IN THE 80’S

on July 9, 2012

Fads from the 80s

  • Baby On Board Signs
    The little yellow sign that looked like a yellow warning sign. 
  • Boom Boxes
    The “ghetto blaster.” The portable radio, with two speakers as a minimum, the heavier and the bigger, the better
  • Rubik Cube
    The toy that was a real pain in the butt to solve, unless you peeled the stickers or pulled it apart.
  • Skateboarding
    Skateboarding really hit a peek in popularity during the 80s, it seemed like everyone was doing it at one point.
  • Trivial Pursuit
    The game that made people start memorizing useless crap in order to win. Probably one of the biggest crazes when it came out though.
  • Video Arcades
    There are arcades now, but during the 80s, they were the *in* place to hangout.
  • Wrestling
    Although it has made a comeback in recent years, nothing even compares with the classic years of the WWF, and the NWA.
  • Break Dancing
    Remember the parachute pants and cardboard boxes we danced on.
  • Cabbage Patch Dolls
  • Roller Skating
