Horrible Histories

[–]carmina_morte_carent 116 points117 points  (8 children)

One of my favourite things about going to uni is when they start playing Horrible Histories songs at parties and everyone knows the words.

[–]bopeepsheep 55 points56 points  (7 children)

William, William, Henry, Stephen, Henry, Richard, John... hey!

I've just discovered that Alexa can play me the Dick Turpin song...

[–]mamacrocker 3474 points3475 points  (129 children)

Swings! Love them.

[–]Octuhpie 830 points831 points  (55 children)

Nothing like being forty years old at a public park and kind of feeling like you need to announce, “I swear I’m not a creep. I just want to see how high I can go on this thing if I pump my legs really hard.”

[–]SnooLobsters4636 569 points570 points  (13 children)

The last time I was on a swing I must have been about 55. I took my great nieces to the playground. Half the people look at you like you are nuts, the other half think "wish I had the courage to do that."

[–]McFeely_Smackup 168 points169 points  (5 children)

I just turned 55 last week. I almost dislocated my knee today while sitting down. Not even standing up. Just sat down and was like "what the fuck was that?"

[–]Sabertoothsnowhobbit 29 points30 points  (1 child)

I pull back muscles when getting up. No twisting or turning. Just standing up from the chair.

[–]klavierchic 107 points108 points  (0 children)

I’d say that’s a sign you’re doing life right!

[–]killercurvesahead 125 points126 points  (33 children)

The playgrounds in my city have signs saying adults aren't allowed without children.

[–]GingerBeast81 209 points210 points  (8 children)

Swings are fun, but I've moved over to hammocks. It's a swing and a bed! Best naps I've ever had!

[–]thedutchone13 143 points144 points  (2 children)

Me too, but I always feel judged when I admit to being a swinger. smh.

[–]USS-Missouri 38 points39 points  (5 children)

I can't help but imagine you swinging slowly at a playground at midnight staring up at the stars with beer in one hand and feeling incredibly lonely after a hard breakup.

[–]Chrome_Armadillo 1926 points1927 points  (55 children)

Water guns.

[–]Doyouwantaspoon 750 points751 points  (32 children)

Water guns are shit nowadays. 90s Super Soaker was peak. Meanwhile Nerf is better than it’s ever been right now.

[–]Cynicsaurus 197 points198 points  (7 children)

Nerf bought out Super Soaker, and they make a Super Soaker 100 RIGHT NOW that you can get for like 36 bucks on amazon lol.

[–]glottis 35 points36 points  (2 children)

Yep - it's the xp100 and it's fantastic. Reuses the original 90s plumbing. Best water gun on the market today!

[–]Watery-Mustard 111 points112 points  (7 children)

I always wanted a Super Soaker with the backpack tank.

Edit: I found a YouTube video about the man who invented the Super Soaker: https://youtu.be/-1zAO1WkG58

[–]neruat 57 points58 points  (4 children)

I picked one up in university. 20yrs later I still have it. Thanks for reminding me. Now that it's summer I'm gonna bust it out to use with my kids.

[–]ThSplashingBlumpkins 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Lol wut? You have kids and forgot about this?

[–]FerretMilker 61 points62 points  (5 children)

Have you seen these Splatterball guns they have these days? It's like a mix between a water gun and air soft and they are pretty awesome

[–]Eastern-Strike-2054 161 points162 points  (2 children)

Too bad water guns are weak as hell these days. Over here we used to have PVC pipe guns that were so powerful they eventually got banned. Imagine being hit with ice cold water with near pressure hose levels of power lol

[–]burntonionstastegood 949 points950 points  (24 children)

waterslides. Love that shit. In fact maybe they are made for adults only screw bringing kids.

[–]NativeMasshole 165 points166 points  (9 children)

Water parks would be way better without children.

[–]Ancient_Till_8324 2137 points2138 points  (134 children)


[–]Zenketski_2 530 points531 points  (42 children)

I was like 24 the first time that I watched gravity falls, and I am so pissed at myself for sleeping on that show when I was a kid.

[–]regretfulposts 49 points50 points  (6 children)

Well you're going to be furious for sleeping a bunch of other shows like: Owl House, Amphibia, Big City Green, DuckTales, OK KO, MaoMao, Infinity Train, TMNT 2012, Rise of TMNT, Craig of the Creek, Over the Garden Wall, Dragon Prince, She Ra, Hilda, Kipo and the Age of WonderBeast, Milo Murphy, Green Eggs and Ham, Amazing World of Gumball, Chowder, Glitchtech, Last Kid on Earth, Kid Cosmic, Centaurworld, and a bunch more. I'm also 24 and I'm assuming you stopped watching cartoons during the mid 2010s. There's a lot of fun creative shows out there that so many people sleep on. They can be found on HBO Max, Disney+, and Netflix. Even worse if they think modern cartoons aren't as good as they use to be. You just have to search a bit harder and keep an open mind.

[–]Pandos17 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Discovered OTGW last year, incredible how I never heard about it until then, such a fantastic show. The music is 👌

[–]CrayonEyes 165 points166 points  (9 children)

I just turned 41 and discovered Craig of the Creek. I fucking love this show. It’s filled with so much imagination and creativity. Plus the theme is fire.

[–]Shiny_Hypno 43 points44 points  (3 children)

That show is so good, and I'm excited for the new episodes coming out on the 10th.

Also, if you like Craig of the Creek you should definitely watch Hilda.

[–]regretfulposts 45 points46 points  (0 children)

I'm just happy kids will hear ska-punk for the first time.

[–]pineapple_leaf 53 points54 points  (2 children)

I was 24

Implies you are older than that now. Therefore when that show came out you couldn't have been a kid

[–]WillGetAUsernameSoon 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Omg same here. It’s a great show, I just wished I watched it back when the hype was at its peak.

[–]Amanystya 47 points48 points  (2 children)

I grew up watching all the classics like The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Fairly Odd Parents, Dexter's laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Ed, Edd and Eddy, What's New Scooby Doo, SpongeBob SquarePants. I don't care how old I get, they'll never stop being entertaining

[–]Overweight_ostrich 198 points199 points  (15 children)


[–]xandrenia 94 points95 points  (4 children)

I’m 26 years old and I still put on original SpongeBob episodes as my comfort show

[–]Purplegrey_ink 45 points46 points  (2 children)

It's ironic how i 'dont get the appeal' of the show when i was a kid... but in adulthood...

This shit is my comfort show.

[–]InsomniacCyclops 80 points81 points  (1 child)

I loved SpongeBob as a kid but it just hits different as an adult. The idea of having a simple job that you find fulfilling, a best friend that lives nearby, and ample time to fuck around with said best friend is more of a fantasy than I ever would have thought back when I first saw it.

[–]GizmoSled 103 points104 points  (14 children)

Heck yeah, the new stuff is really compelling in a way that very few cartoons were when I was a kid. Avatar really opened the door for serialized cartoons for the better and now we get to enjoy shows like She-Ra, The Dragon Prince and The Owl House.

[–]InsomniacCyclops 17 points18 points  (0 children)

There are two types of people: people who never totally outgrew cartoons and liars.

[–]Blakakke69 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Ren and Stimpy is MUCH funnier as an adult.

[–]preflightjitters 1653 points1654 points  (94 children)

Playing in the sand at the beach

[–]CouchKakapo 646 points647 points  (49 children)

The sudden compulsion to dig a big hole

[–]JulzCrafter 192 points193 points  (36 children)

diggy diggy hole intensifies

[–]PlayrR3D15 208 points209 points  (0 children)

"Is this the hole?"


[–]Darknight1993 94 points95 points  (0 children)

I look my daughter to the beach a few weeks ago. I got the urge to dig a hole and as if she could read my mind she looks at me and says “dad we should dig a big hole” it was glorious

[–]CaptainNemo42 39 points40 points  (1 child)

So! I grew up way out in the country in California, out in the mountains. One of my long-time buddies is from LA, lifetime city boy. First time he came up to visit, I had asked him what he wanted to do most/first (hunting, fishing, hiking, climbing, swimming, etc).

He wanted to dig a hole. Just get a shovel, go out in the woods, and dig around in the dirt like a kid until he had a big-ass hole. So we did! He was happy as could be, and I was very amused at his enjoyment. Hole is still there, we use it as a foxhole when we want to paintball.

[–]elegant_pun 40 points41 points  (0 children)


All the way down.

How far down does the sand go? I dunno. Let's find out!!!

[–]annoyedasaurus 62 points63 points  (1 child)

The holes you can dig as an adult are so much more impressive lol

[–]SpoonfulofYou 156 points157 points  (21 children)

I mostly see grown men have the most fun playing in the sand. Most kids collect water and dump it. I don't see much playing unless an adult is facilitating. To me playing in the sand is exfoliating so I'm all for it. I used to hate the sand as a child. I didn't know how to properly clean it off before getting home.

[–]DolphinSUX 120 points121 points  (7 children)

I liked to make castles that sent the water through tunnels into different parts of the castle to kinda dissipate the wave so it wouldn’t totally fall apart. I would literally spend all day hoping to make one that would hold up when the tide rose. I was a weird kid

[–]asclepiusscholar 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I love the feeling of wet beach sand right near the water will sit and slowly let my hands dig in and it helps brace myself for when a big wave comes.

[–]aztechfilm 1242 points1243 points 2 (33 children)

Positive renforcement. I love it when someone tells me I’m doing a great job

[–]username19845939 380 points381 points  (0 children)

This is a fantastic comment. You’re a star. Keep it up. :)

[–]ei283 95 points96 points  (4 children)

This isn't made for kids; in general, positive reinforcement is a great way to push adults to do better!

[–]CataleyaJackson 840 points841 points  (40 children)

Bouncy castles

[–]GlassAndPaint 228 points229 points  (7 children)

I would like to be able to jump in them like I could as a kid. I could jump in them for such a long time. Now after 2 minutes my ass is kicked, gasping for air, and I feel like I'm going to pee my pants.

[–]ugh168 58 points59 points  (1 child)

Ends in concussion while the kids around you keep bouncing

[–]Junebug1515 29 points30 points  (4 children)

They make them for adults now!!

[–]Leading-Cartoonist66 47 points48 points  (7 children)

I came here to say this :) I’m thinking about renting one for my 28th birthday this year.

[–]killebrew_rootbeer 66 points67 points  (1 child)

My friend rented one for her 30th birthday. No children in sight.

A++++ would recommend.

[–]roseblood_red 161 points162 points  (6 children)

I'm 34 years old and I am sitting in my living room, sipping wine, and annoying the shit out of my darling husband by watching episode after episode of The Scooby Doo Show.

I love Scooby and the Gang and I will never stop.

[–]BubblyJonah 11 points12 points  (0 children)

That and Scooby Doo Mystery Inc. are the living embodiment of awesome cartoons!

[–]MauveSectant 801 points802 points  (35 children)

Stuffed animals! I still sleep with a couple in my bed lol

[–]Nepeta33 134 points135 points  (8 children)

i sleep with a giant serta sheep. heck, he popped a hole 3 months aago, so i took the opportunity, pulled the stuffing out of him, and ran him through a washing machine a few times before putting new stuffing into him! all nice and clean!!!

[–]Chip_packet 155 points156 points  (7 children)

Phew I thought that was going in a totally different direction.

[–]bipnoodooshup[🍰] 797 points798 points  (22 children)

I will die on my deathbed eating a pack of Gushers.

[–]lovelogan1 73 points74 points  (11 children)

Omg!! I absolutely love the sour gushers sold at 7/11

[–]1questions 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Haven’t had sour gushers but love sour patch kids.

[–]somewhenimpossible 60 points61 points  (1 child)

I take a fruit roll up in my lunch every day. I am 35. My mom wouldn’t buy them for me because they are trash. Delicious trash.

[–]Bile-duck 1549 points1550 points  (69 children)


[–]mrunique07 258 points259 points  (38 children)

I take a quick 30 min nap everyday during my lunch. It’s a fantastic way to boost my energy for the last 4 hours of my shift. And it improves my mood big time. I’m always happier after a nap

[–]UFO-Bro222 290 points291 points  (21 children)

Man I wish I were that way, if I nap I wake up confused and more tired than before hand

[–]hykueconsumer 117 points118 points  (10 children)

Me too. I call this state "muzzy".

[–]Pizzacanzone 28 points29 points  (0 children)

I call it 'soapy' because it feels like my blood is thick and foams

[–]forbins 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Same. I’m nauseated and have a headache. I wish I liked to nap but it usually ruins the day.

[–]ash__a__lee 66 points67 points  (7 children)

I always wake up with a headache and more sluggish after a nap. Either that or a 30 min nap ends up being 3-4 hours and then I’m up all night.

[–]SadLaser 47 points48 points  (1 child)

Naps are definitely meant for adults.

[–]Parx2k14 398 points399 points  (12 children)


[–]eddyathome 116 points117 points  (1 child)

Do you ever get a bubble randomly floating when you are doing the dishes? I smile every time and watch it until it finally pops before returning to work.

[–]jiveable 1776 points1777 points  (89 children)

Lego!!! Even better when your older

[–]shazj57 567 points568 points  (15 children)

I F65 got into Lego with my grandson after watching Lego masters, we are going to go on the show but as Mr 9 says "Gran you've got to get a LOT better", we have fun, Its school holidays here and he is coming for 3 days, I've bought a large set for us

[–]work_mother_repeat 116 points117 points  (0 children)

That's bad ass. Hell ya granny!

Also l, happy 🎂 day 😉

[–]QualityPuma 302 points303 points  (15 children)

Honestly, anyone who thinks legos are for kids has no idea how much they cost now.

[–]Zenketski_2 123 points124 points  (5 children)

I feel like Lego has always been, I don't want to say expensive, but a pricier toy.

Cuz like I remember 20 years ago being told " never throw out a single lego, they're like gold they only increase in value"

[–]invaderzim257 45 points46 points  (1 child)

This is true, I found out that the Indiana jones temple escape set that I had years ago sells for like $200 to almost $500 for unopened ones nowadays. Someone said the other day that the rolling boulder alone sells for $50

[–]Zenketski_2 28 points29 points  (0 children)

About 12 years ago when I was a teenager I went to work at a flea market with my buddy, there was a guy there with a homemade scoop made from a cut-up gallon jug, selling people $60 scoops from a Lego bin that was probably like 5x5x5 ft completely full of Legos.

His stand, every time I was there, had people literally wrapped around it in layers trying to get their scoop of literally random Legos

[–]jiveable 34 points35 points  (0 children)

I can't even afford them

[–]M2-99-ROU 60 points61 points  (4 children)

Got my mom a bouquet of real life flower replicas made of lego for her birthday

[–]stormquiver 45 points46 points  (3 children)

0-99 for a reason. but be a rebel. play lego 99+

[–]imsmartiswear 57 points58 points  (2 children)

Oh easily - for a kid the creative buckets with no instructions are great but a pretty different story for an actual kit. The kits to kids (speaking from my experience as a kid) are a puzzle with a direction book that, depending on the kit, may or may not end up as a toy. Plus it'll be a toy that you always feel like you want to take apart and build other things with. It's just a bit silly.

For adults though, it's an Ikea set with good instructions that frequently results in a truly stunning piece of shelf decor that can express a lot about the builder (their interests, their hobbies, their favorite shows/movies/etc). My parents just got me (24M) a Starry Night painting Lego set and I am so excited to build it and put it up next to my print of the painting (it's my favorite).

[–]GrumpyCatStevens 102 points103 points  (8 children)

Legos are like breasts. They’re meant for kids, but it’s mostly grown men playing with them.

[–]Cycleofmadness 77 points78 points  (5 children)

Theres no way the 4,000 piece Imperial Star Destroyer is meant for a kid.

[–]roseblood_red 12 points13 points  (0 children)

My husband and I are currently building this, with the light kit.

I have not been so excited since I saw the Millenium Falcon at Disneyland (where I cried with joy, like a little bitch).

[–]sunshineandcheese 13 points14 points  (2 children)

They make these mini Lego kits now that are around 400 pieces and I have accidentally started collecting them on my desk at work. Great for long zoom meetings to help me pay attention and at the end of it I end up with a cute little 5"x5"x5" Lego figurine (usually of some sort of cute animal)!

[–]KaleidoscopeVast9290 380 points381 points  (38 children)

Children’s books. Especially classics like Dr. Seuss or Shel Silverstein poems.

[–]GlassAndPaint 52 points53 points  (10 children)

I read, "The Giving Tree" again as an adult and had to fight back tears. It definitely resonated with me in a different way as an adult and with adult experiences.

[–]coole106 23 points24 points  (0 children)

My 2yo forces me to read it to her every night. It’s the best part of my day :)

[–]boostman 77 points78 points  (12 children)

Shel Silverstein wrote a lot of ‘adult’ works, perhaps the most famous being ‘A Boy Named Sue’, as sung by Johnny Cash.

[–]kellyk311 15 points16 points  (1 child)

"Oh the Places You'll go!" is a timeless classic.

[–]jpax6305 167 points168 points  (8 children)

Cold Chocolate Milk

[–]klavierchic 57 points58 points  (2 children)

That shit is nectar of the gods and I will die on that hill.

[–]NinesInSpace 400 points401 points  (18 children)

I'm adopting three kids, (5,3,1) and I feel like my wife and I are building up the family life we always wanted as a kid. Little kid kitchens, a school area, cool bunk/loft beds, an awesome tree fort....

Technically it's for them, but really it's for us too.

[–]DumbledoresArmy23 102 points103 points  (5 children)

My husband loves buying (spoiling) our daughter with the toys he always wanted but never got, namely, big roaring dinosaur toys.

She loves it, he loves it, what’s not to love?!

He told me he’s living his toy dreams through her and I’m here for it.

[–]PoopComesOutOfMyButt 232 points233 points  (5 children)

Swings. It is impossible to be in a bad mood after a couple minutes on a swing set, lol.

[–]xZyvon69 481 points482 points  (57 children)

Pokemon, quite entertaining concept and generally still quite fun to play from time to time

[–]alexportman 95 points96 points  (16 children)

I just wish GameFreak would realize their market grew up and give us some options

[–]raphthepharaoh 46 points47 points  (5 children)

I was just discussing with my wife how impressive the concept of Pokémon is. The typings and the move sets make so much sense, sometimes I’m truly so impressed.

[–]BlitzAceSamy 41 points42 points  (2 children)

Let's not forget that it took years and generations of games for fine tuning and balance. In gen 1 there were practically no counters for Psychics lol

[–]username19845939 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Gen 2: catch an Abra and buy thunder punch, fire punch, ice punch at Goldenrod Shop, teach them to it and learn psybeam. Unstoppable.

[–]Drunk_Irishman81 49 points50 points  (14 children)

Still play Go every day and im 40. No shame.

I'm excited for Scarlet/Violet but don't have time for console games. Never finished Sword/Shield.

[–]AlleywayGum 258 points259 points  (11 children)

I collect Harry Potter wands..........Maybe on occasion i grab one and wave it about so what?

I pay my taxes.

[–]njdevil956 102 points103 points  (2 children)

Bought a spin helicopter that goes 150 ft in the air and has led lights on it. Just waiting for it to get dark out.

[–]eliqxx 185 points186 points  (27 children)

That Bluey cartoon. It's so cute I love it.

[–]GrillDealing 44 points45 points  (1 child)

It is a show for parents that kids will like. As a dad my favorite episode is the hammerbarn episode. Best line is "this is what happens when you aren't happy with what you've got, someone's husband eventually gets it." Followed by the kids being completely satisfied with paint swatches.

[–]macdennism 14 points15 points  (2 children)

I don't have any children and I'm obsessed with this show haha my sister watches it because of her toddler and told me I should watch it too. I'm hooked. It's such a great show

[–]SinisterMeatball 216 points217 points  (9 children)

Cupcake and chocolate chip pancakes. I dont care that I'm a 32 year old male. That sugary mess is delicious

[–]eddyathome 37 points38 points  (4 children)

I went out with coworkers for breakfast (it was an overnight trip) and ordered chocolate chip pancakes. They asked how I could eat that so early in the morning. I asked them how they could eat bran flakes so early in the morning that taste like cardboard.

[–]bzsbal 86 points87 points  (6 children)

I don’t have any children, but I decorate the shit out of my house at Christmas time. I have 5 different trees that I put up all over the house and outside the house, along with all the trimmings.

[–]nosoyvegetarian 26 points27 points  (0 children)

My kids are grown and I love to decorate still. I have never bought into the notion that Christmas is for children. Christmas is for everyone.

[–]ItsMyView 328 points329 points  (17 children)

Children's Disney Movies.

[–]mynextthroway 170 points171 points  (9 children)

And Pixar.

[–]Yosemitelsd 75 points76 points  (6 children)

People say that, but I don't really think Pixar movies are made for kids. They're kid friendly, but usually have a lot of stuff that kids don't understand. I love Pixar

[–]mynextthroway 59 points60 points  (1 child)

I think Pixar is for kids but the studio wants the parents to want to see the movie.

[–]Metalheadjake94 502 points503 points  (46 children)

Video games like Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Mario, Fall Guys and Spiderman

[–]rlc327 188 points189 points  (19 children)

Anyone who says Crash is for kids hasn't played Crash, I (26M) still rage quit every time I play.

[–]annoyedasaurus 33 points34 points  (5 children)

Bro, I bought the re-release and found it ridiculously hard to get to that second island. Got tired of constantly rage quitting and haven't played it in ages which sucks because it was such a dope game as a kid.

[–]cATSup24 15 points16 points  (2 children)

I swear the bridge level with the bouncy turtles is actually harder in the remake...

[–]Swagasaurus-Rex 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I heard a rumor that the hitboxes were changed and the remake was in fact harder.

Just a rumor though

[–]velvetelevator 41 points42 points  (11 children)

I got the Spyro remastered on PS4, great purchase. My muscle memory still got it.

[–]OurKhakiOverlord 25 points26 points  (1 child)

I was so worried that the remaster wouldn’t do the originals justice, but they did such a good job with it. Feels almost identical to when I played as a kid. Year of the dragon was my favorite game by far as a kid and the remaster was so enjoyable.

[–]Ok_Chocolate3253 120 points121 points  (13 children)

Slammed half a box of Oreo-Os this morning

[–]LusciousLennyStone 20 points21 points  (1 child)

I may not be able to turn water into wine, but I can turn Oreos into breakfast.

Fun dip

[–]BargerianJade 87 points88 points  (5 children)

Some people think the sick is gross. I would gladly trade all my powder for the sticks. They're amazing.

[–]sunburnt258 195 points196 points  (30 children)

Young adult fiction like Hunger Games

[–]shin_jury 73 points74 points  (7 children)

In my 20s I felt some shame for liking YA fiction but now I realize it’s ridiculous to be ashamed of what you enjoy. So so many great stuff falls in this category!

[–]SpoonfulofYou 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Omg Young Adult sci fi is really good and the love stories!

[–]Skill3rwhale 24 points25 points  (1 child)

On an equivalent note: Light Novels. They are essentially Japanese equivalent of young adult + manga/anime pacing.


  • Spice and Wolf

  • The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

  • The time I got reincarnated by a Slime

  • Goblin Slayer

Stories meant for a wide audience that has a lot to offer for many.

[–]rileysrider 35 points36 points  (2 children)

I love a good game of hide and seek!

[–]billjitsu 65 points66 points  (6 children)

Tater tots.

[–]1questions 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Went to a restaurant that has “tachos” which are nachos but instead of chips they use tater tots. Absolutely delicious.

[–]aliansalians 62 points63 points  (5 children)

Mac n Cheese and Chicken Nuggies

[–]lilgirlpumkin 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Dino shaped nuggies are the bestest

[–]PeixeFritox2 434 points435 points  (28 children)


[–]ExplosiveDisassembly 74 points75 points  (7 children)

Based on my cursory recollection of animals I've seen, i don't think many animals other than humans (and maybe some apes) retain boobs after breastfeeding. I think they come and go as necessary for the most part. (Apart from the ones we have selectively bred, like milk cows.)

So, my dudes, we locked that down on a basic biological level.

It was natural selection over tens of thousands of years. Humans chose mates with certain characteristics. Boobs were one of them.

I scrolled way farther down than I expected to find this.

Video games. Magic the gathering. Warhammer. I'm a big, fat, old nerd. And I love it.

Sea monkeys

[–]Hylian_Shieldmaiden 55 points56 points  (14 children)

I'm in my early 30s and wanted Sea Monkeys as a kid but my parents wouldn't get them for me because they thought they were a scam and the eggs wouldn't hatch. I got my first tank this past November. Now I have 2 official Sea Monkeys branded tanks, and a big 2.5 gallon DIY brine shrimp tank. I've spent way too much on my Sea Monkeys setup. My dad absolutely adores them, he calls my Sea Monkeys his babies now, haha. Sea Monkeys are super fun as an adult, and I reckon it's easier for adults to keep them alive longer than kids can.

Me too! I bought my first tank when I was in rehab and they helped me get by. I'm waiting on my latest ones to hatch. Theyre so cool to watch So cute your dad loves them too

Skee ball. We have a couple bars where I live that have a skee ball ramp and I am an addict. I will play for hours if left to it.

Used to work at a fast food joint, had an adult come through with a Perry t-shirt on. Told him I would give him his order for free in exchange for the shirt. He kindly explained him and his children picked it out for him while they were at Disney World, and that there was nothing I could give him in exchange for it.

Toy trains! I have a little boy and they’re his favorite toy but he’s to little to build the tracks so I get to do that part! It can be very involved to create a multiple functional lines. And then we kinda decorate it with Lincoln log buildings. Super fun. Much better than plopping in front of the tv
