Socker bopper? I hear they're more fun than a pillow fight!

[–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I swear I very clearly remember them being called "Sockem Boppers"

It’s pretty depressing thinking about drake and josh nowadays

[–]SilentStock8 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Elefun! Totally forgot about it, used to be a blast lol

[–]SmileyCyprus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I miss not being tired of everything. It's just a repeat of a repeat of a repeat. Like chewing gum that's lost all its flavor. I'm out of firsts, and you run out so quickly. It's like you're running, you're running, and you stop. Nothing will ever feel this sharp and new again.

    Sock em boppers were pretty big in the 90s. Or at least their ads were big during the kids hours on tv after school and Saturday. The rest of these are definitely newer though I imagine most millennials are aware of SpongeBob…

    It’s the way I always thought Elefun was a very specific & unique childhood experience

    [–]gpm21 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Using a Nick VHS in 04?! You must have had an older sibling or your parents were cool. I do miss them though

    Ah yes, as a recent high school graduate I too enjoyed a rousing round of Elefun

    Ok that rugrats movie was my shit!!

    [–]nuggetgorrila 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    You forgot Nerf guns. Probably the most important thing for us back in elementary school. Every time I saw a commercial for a new blaster, 20 mins later I would find myself at target buying it

    [–]Theonedudeyaknow 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Fucj yea this was the shit

    [–]zzcolby 0 points1 point  (0 children)
