Do you remember your childhood wish lists? Most of the things you longed for were probably completely unrealistic. Back then, it was all about monsters and magic, or about fairies and princesses. But luckily, there were also some presents mom and dad could actually buy us among all these remote children’s dreams – and which made our eyes shine on Christmas Eve or on our birthday.
And somehow, we all wanted the same things back in the 80s and 90s. We raved about our new BMX bike. And we were overjoyed when we got new Masters figures.
So you can surely relate to the following pictures: Here a 16 presents all children put on their wish lists in the 80s and 90s!
#1 Cabbage Patch Kids (but what was the big deal about them, actually?)
