Any 80's kids about?

Found 28th Jan 2009
Just chatting to my other half about when we were kids (we both went to the same primary school), and we got onto the subject of clothing...

Does anyone remember when your jeans had transfers of the Flintstones on them?

Any what about reversible jumpers? I had an absolutely fab 101 dalmations one... it was sooo cool!!

And illuminous socks!?! My brother always had an odd pair of those on....

Anyone remember any other cool 80's things? Oh and PLEASE can someone find a piccy of a typical reversible jumper - my husband can't remember them at all.... he must have forgotton how totally cool I looked at our school disco when we were 10, as I wore mine then ;-)

Oh I remember choppers - my neighbour had one and we all laughed at him, whilst riding past on our BMX's, hehehe! Little did we know it'd be worth a fortune now, and mega-cool, lol! :thumbsup:

Oh, yea, I remember those - global hypercolour T-shirts, or something.... I had a red nose day one, but it just ended up constantly yellow, hehe! :oops:

I too had a reversible dalmations jumper - if i remember rightly it was slightly padded and had a large dog on one side and lots of small ones on the other? I too had transfers on my jeans. I also had a chopper bike (which I came off of and knocked my front teeth out!). I also remember bright sweatshirts with transfer prints on i.e. dogs etc.
My cousin always wore odd iluminous socks - things have gone full circle as they are back in fashion along with leg warmers!
I think the 80's were cool - the music too!

anyone remember green clause or simon and the witch ?

Yea, that's the same jumper I had! How cool were we?!??! One large on on the front, and loads on the other side... plus you could turn over the cuffs of the sleeves, and have the best of both worlds, eh, eh?!? :thumbsup:

And yea, they were totally padded - felt like you were wearing a sleeping bag or something...

Ah... that was when kids were kids, and dressed like kids. Now they just seem to wear the same stuff as adults, only smaller....
