Watching my little girl drawing on my ipad I chuckled as I thought of all the things I used to have when I was growing up that she will think are really strange.
(A word of advice-don’t complete this exercise if you want to feel young)
Here is my top 23 items that have disappeared with the dinosaurs:
- Personal Stereo
- CD Walkman
- Video player
- VHS tapes
- Soda stream
- Analogue TV with 3 channels to choose from
- TV that stopped broadcasting at the end of the schedules
- TV cabinets that closed around it to hide it. Though no one ever closed it
- On/off buttons on the TV
- Top of the pops
- Commodore 64
- Atari Pong game
- Our Price
- Phone boxes
- Phone credit cards
- Ghetto blasters
- Kodak cameras with film
- Fax machines
- Polaroid cameras
This list has really made me laugh and Googling them has made me laugh even more.
My highlight was when I got my first Sony CD Walkman- the music used to jump if you knocked it when walking and there was never a comfortable way of carrying them-I think I once had a CD Walkman carrying bag-cringe. Let me see if I can find an image.
Here is my Walkman:
Oh cringe-here is a bag just like the one I had.
And this was the latest technology!
Have I missed anything off?
Let me know.
Can’t wait to explain these things to my daughter
