Boomers Can Identify Every Object In This Quiz Without A Second Thought
I am always amazed by the items we didn't realize would change the world!

Maybe everyone starts to get a little bit nostalgic when they think of the belongings they held near and dear when they were kids and young adults. I mean, Millennials are still talking about Tamagotchis.

But the items that define the Baby Boomer generation are even more fun to look back on and reminisce. Back in the day, Boomers used some items pretty regularly that kids these days could never identify.

Back before just about everything was digital, the world looked a little different.

You might even argue it was better. There were all sorts of games that let you really use your imagination and goof off with your friends and family. Remember Barrel of Monkeys or Rock ‘Em Sock “Em Robots? Don’t tell me you didn’t have some of your biggest laughs ever playing with those toys.

Fashion was different too. In some ways, it was more expressive and vibrant. There is nothing quite like a mood ring to let the world know what you’re thinking and how you’re feeling. And while kitten heels are still in style, Boomers invented the look.

You may not necessarily want to go back in time, but you can always reminisce on a special era.
