Loved these

Ice cream cup with wooden "spoon." The Dixie Cups we got in school were half-vanilla/half-chocolate ice cream.


Long distance and we had party lines so we had to wait to use the phone

remember lighting these and snakes would appear along with a bad smell and your mother yelling at you that you burnt the sidewalk...:D

Firework Snakes - There were always black marks on our sidewalk where we lit these every of July. Loved stomping these when they were done.

Every kid born after WW2 played cowboys and Indians and shot of caps up until the late 50's, then other forms of toy guns were developed. Use to love the smell the burn cap left after shooting the gun.

Lots of Memories

Cap gun, roll caps ~ not only did we use them in the toy cap guns but we would take a hard surface like a rock or sidewalk and then hit each cap with a rock to make them pop and smoke. I remember the smell!

Monopoly pieces

remember when the Monopoly pieces looked like this? - I loved Monopoly when I was a kid :) My brother would ALWAYS win.

I loved going on the 'wall of death' at Dreamland.

Remember this ride? The barrel pins you to the wall while the floor drops! I haven't seen this in years. The previous Pinner said that this ride has been virtually eliminated from theme parks. I remember riding this at Six Flags Magic Mtn.

wonder why nobody says this anymore?!

I think its funny my kids thought this, yep I was scary or had my bluff on them Lol

If you remember this, then you had a fun childhood. The best part is that you didn't have to plug it in.

vintage toy - travel number puzzle game by christian montone - i remember busting the tiles out and putting them back n how i wanted!

Rolling Down Hills! Awesome fun!

Rolling down the hill - best fun ever This is so true and we never got hurt or broke out necks, but I bet most kids today have never enjoyed this simple pleasure. Too bad as adults we can't just go out on break at work and roll down the nearest hill

Staying outside playing all over the neighborhood until after dark, and hearing mom yelling out the door that it's time to come home

Staying outside playing all over the neighborhood until after dark, and hearing mom yelling out the door that it's time to come home. Remember playing kick the can in the dark & all the games outside. Alot of fun in our younger days.

Smallpox injection, if you have a scar near the shoulder. . .you had one!

Remember the Smallpox Vaccination? Mine is on the inside of my left arm, so it doesn't show. Also remember taking sugar cubes for Polio.

When everything was closed on sunday. Times were better then. You had no choice but to relax with your family and friends.

Stores were only open Monday through Saturday - closed on Sunday! Sunday's were truly days of rest and family. The Blue Law made it illegal to open on Sunday

Hopscotch- finally found my playground sport

I used to play hopscotch every day in elementary school. A chain bracelet was my favorite marker.

I survived everything here, except now I have lung issues from second-hand smoke :(

3 TV station you had to get up to change, No video games, A corded Phone w/ rotary dialing & so much more.

This was my childhood

I'm not a kid but I still did all these things. (PS I survived the garden hose)

I remember burning my legs on them as a kid, but was that going to stop me... Hell No

Metal Slides ~ Fun on a Hot Sunny Day: Ouch! but add wax paper and you flew over that hump!
