Born in the 80’s? Then you will love this Christmas In The 80’s Blog. Enjoy!
Mr Frosty: Release Date 1980.
Mr Frosty was indeed a delicious invention. And one that put him at the top of many a Christmaslist in the 80s. Mr Frosty was a snowman-shaped piece of white plastic (think The Marshmallow man from Ghostbusters) with a sweet, smiley face and the word ‘FROSTY’ across his front in red. We all wanted this 80’s favourite, because it meant we could make slush puppy drinks to our heart’s content, or until we got severe brain freeze! Everyone wanted a Mr Frosty & it has been so popular that a more modern Mr Frosty is still on sale today.
: Release Date 1981

Care Bears are still going today and looking more modern & more vibrant than they were in the 80’s.

Do you remember these creepy characters?
And last but not least out of the pick of 80’s memorabilia I had chosen for this Blog is my personal favourite (Yes I had this).
The Sega Mega Drive Release Date: 1988 in Japan. Originally known as Sega Genesis developed & sold by Sega Enterprises. They console was used by fairly big game cartridges that you slotted in the top of the console and using the joystick or game pads to play the game through your TV.
How far game consoles have changed now, looking back at this and even older ways to play games like Atari, is just mind blowing to the distance that Technology has really grown to now.
