No, they won't.  Lol

We live in my mother's house with her, as caregivers.a corded phone in EVERY room! and I think everyone we knew then had the list of numbers posted on the wall by the phone]

OMG I remember licking and sticking piles of these in books (wonder I didn't die from glue poisoning!)

green shield stamps, my first saturday job.working as a runner in the green shield stamp shop!

I don't know why we did this, but we did...

Yes and putting glue on our hands, just for the thrill of peeling it off. I also put Ralgex and Algipan on my arms to feel the burn. Guess you had to find some way of enjoying yourself , if you didn't have that many toys lol !

did anyone not have one of these?

Remember these plastic strip door curtains to stop the flies in summer? My Aunt had these and I used to get told off for plaiting them!

Small Brick in a Cone yum yum!

These were DIY ice creams. Buy a cone and a chunk of ice cream wrapped in a bit of grease proof paper and make yourself a lush summer fave!

Golf Balls bubblegum- forgot all about these until I saw this pic. Wonderful memory of the smell and texture!

Golf Balls bubblegum- the texture of these was amazing. Like a satisfying lump of blutack coated in a thick layer of emulsion paint. The flavour left a lot to be desired.

Top Deck Shandy - Limeade & Lager we thought we were bees knees drinking this down the park.

I loved this Pretty Peach talc . My Aunty Pauline bought it for me every Christmas along with (I think) perfume and bubble bath.

"Elastics". Yes, this was a thing. God bless the '70's.

Chinese Jump Rope - Must accomplish specific series of moves without making an error. It has been popular for many years, certainly since the in the United States. In New Zealand, Australia and Great Britain children refer to the game as "Elastics".
