I noticed "pogoballs" were on the list. Does anyone remember how dangerous those things were? Who came up with that idea and thought, "Hey, let's make a toy that makes kids balance on a small surface while bouncing up and down on concrete." My mom wouldn't let me have one. As a kid I didn't understand why. As a parent now, I completely understand!

My is a tie between carebears and cabbage patch kids. I was only around for the last five years of the 80's. So I don't remember much.

My kids loved the care bears and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. We had a lot of fun with both of those.

I wasn't allowed to have a pogoball either. But I did have a hoppity hop. I'm not sure if that was any better, lol.

I had an Atari and loved Pac-Man. We also had a Popeye game that was essentially Donkey Kong, as Popeye tried to make it to the top of a ship while Brutus threw barrels at him.

I loved He-Man and had Castle Grayskull which was awesome! I also liked Super Friends action figures (the Justice League basically) so I played a lot with Superman, Batman, etc.
