15 Things We Just Couldn’t Live Without When We Were Little

By Angie on August 22, 2016


When we were younger, it sort of felt like time went slower and that we had less to worry about. However, we were fragile little things, and we definitely wouldn’t have been able to live without these things!

1. Gel Pens

How would we have managed to get through those boring times when we weren’t in school without these babies? I’m fairly sure I spent most of my childhood drawing out little doodles with these things.

It got to a point in my house where there were more gel pens than actual pens. It would drive my dad mental when all he could find was a gel pen!

2. Goosebumps Books

When you look back now, they seem pretty mild, but that does mean we didn’t adore them at the time. Nothing better than getting to twist ending of one of these while lay in bed, reading by dim lamplight.

Actually, looking back some of these got really messed up. I’d like to go back to them now and see some of the sinister stuff I was ingesting as a child.

3. Arctic Roll

Where to even start when it comes to this stuff? One of the greatest moments of childhood was when you made it to lunchtime at school and found that they had this up for desert. What a happy time!

I’d like to say it’s because we’re easier to please when we’re younger, but to be honest I reckon I would be just as happy now if I got home and found out this was waiting for me.

4. Bop It

Sure, they’ve got loads of different types of Bop It now, but back in the day, we only had the vanilla bop it, the best bop it.

If anybody has a spare Bop It lying around, get me on it. Best party toy ever.
