Fads from the 80s

Top fads from the 1980s. What we did while growing up in the 80s.

Baby On Board Signs
The little yellow sign that looked like a yellow warning sign. 

Boom Boxes
The “ghetto blaster.” The portable radio, with two speakers as a minimum, the heavier and the bigger, the better

Rubik Cube
The toy that was a real pain in the butt to solve, unless you peeled the stickers or pulled it apart.

Skateboarding
Skateboarding really hit a peek in popularity during the 80s, it seemed like everyone was doing it at one point.

Trivial Pursuit
The game that made people start memorizing useless crap in order to win. Probably one of the biggest crazes when it came out though.

Video Arcades
There are arcades now, but during the 80s, they were the *in* place to hangout.

Wrestling
Although it has made a comeback in recent years, nothing even compares with the classic years of the WWF, and the NWA.

Break Dancing
Remember the parachute pants and cardboard boxes we danced on.

Cabbage Patch Dolls

Roller Skating
