17 Presents We Begged Our Parents For When We Were Younger

By Angie on August 22, 2016


1. Atari 2600

Remember how it felt to plug this into the TV and then fiddle around with the joystick, dodging all the ghosts as Pac-Man or playing Pong with your sibling? It came bundled with two controllers as standard, something you’d never see these days!

Crazy to think what games look like these days when you look back just thirty years ago. We were happy enough with some random bleeps and a handful of pixels.

2. Esprit Sweatshirt

Believe it or not but Esprit is a company that still exists, even stretching beyond clothing and accessories into selling products for the home! Sounds like desperation to me.

Essentially, they’ve been in decline for years now, but that doesn’t mean that when we were younger this Sweatshirt was the thing to have! What was it that we found so great about them?

3. A Swatch Watch

The odd thing about Swatch is how they’re still going, and how they seemed to start as a multi-coloured kid’s brand, while it grew to cater to everyone. Sure, they’re cheap, but they don’t look cheap!

Did you ever get your Swatch when you were younger? Anybody who got one of these was the king or queen of the playground!

4. Aqua Net

If there’s anything in this world that immediately makes people think about the 80’s, it’s hairspray. You can say whatever you want, a whole can of this would keep your hair in place all night! Well worth the money.

If you use hairspray and didn’t live through the 80’s, give this stuff a chance!

5. Guess Jeans

Yet another company that you might be surprised to know still exists, but is also making a last ditch attempt to stay afloat by selling various other products beside jeans these days!

While people may go more for Levi jeans these days, there’s still some vintage lovers out there rocking the Guess jeans.
