I can easily remember a lot of the different products that were popular when I was in high schoool. Nike shoes were a big deal back then, and they still are. I had a pair that were navy blue with the white swoosh on the side. I was looking at a site that has a lot of female Nike tenis shoes on it recently, and saw that they have brought back the same exact pair of shoes! They do not look like they are for kids at all. They are feminine and really classy, so I ordered a pair. This got me curious what other companies are still making some things that were popular many decades ago, too.
I was telling my husband about the shoes that I purchased, and he started looking online with me to see if some of his favorite things from the past are still around. Some things we found and some seem to no longer be around. We had a lot of fun looking, though. I started thinking about some of the old toys that I had as a child. For fun, I began looking some of those up on the Internet. Most companies are not making a lot of old toys, but a lot of the things I played with can be found on auction sites.
I still have my old teddy bear from when I was a kid. The tag on my bear is now missing, but I was curious which company made him so many years ago. I found that info easily enough, and then I saw that the photos of the bear online look a little different than mine does now! I had forgotten that my bear originally had a fluffy nose. As a child, I wore his nose off because I used to touch the nose often because the nose was so soft! I forgot about that until I found the pictures on the Internet. It was a lot of fun to look through things that I used to cherish.
