I have to say that one of things that I love about this site is that it often makes me remember things from my childhood. In todays busy world, we spend so much time rushing around that I often wonder what my children will remember from their childhood.

Childhood memories

Well, I am having fun introducing my daughters to the wonderful toys I played with when I was their age, such as Cabbage Patch Kids, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, etc.  My three year old is enjoying her pet sea-monkeys right now!

I remember one really awesome food thing for when I was little were there hotdogs called "Frankenstuffs."  They were a regular hotdog, but on the inside was filled with either cheese or chili.  The chili ones were my favorite, but you had to be careful because when you microwaved the chili, it got mouth-scorching hot!  I couldn't have been but around 5 or so when I ate those in the mid-80s.  Does anyone else remember these?  I wish they still made them.

re: childhood memories

Funny you should say that....just bought Sea Monkees for my niece's birthday gift thsi evening...those have been around forever.  I'm racking my brain trying to remember Frankenstuffs but I am drawing a blank....I do remember cheese-filled hot dogs that came out at one point in the mid-80s.....Hmmm, now horrifying memories of "PepsiClear" come to mind and fond memories of a General Mills breakfast product called "Breakfast Squares"....there were three flavors - chocolate, vanilla, and cinnamon...they were like little cakey squares in these foil pouches....ah, good stuff...gone but not forgotten!
