I’m an 80′s kid. And since I was born in 1981, I was able to experience 90% of that glorious decade. Ah, the 80′s, the birthplace of most of my childhood favorites, many of which you’ve probably heard me ramble on about here on this blog. From He-Man to The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Back to the Future to The Karate Kid. The 80′s was a great time to be a kid.
It kind of makes me sad to think that the kids growing up today look up at their older brothers and sisters, interacting like zombies in front of their computers. The 80′s were all about adventure for me. It was about me and my bike and my friends. It was about hunting for imaginary treasures like the Goonies did. It was about hunting for dinosaur bones in my back yard. It was about me turning into a ninja and then into a pirate and then back to a kid. It was about leaving the NES cartridge in the NES on all night to save my place in a game. The 80′s were awesome, at least for me it was.
PS: I’ve included a downloadable PDF reference guide at the bottom to help you figure out what/who these T-Shirts refer to. But can you figure them all out without looking at the reference guide? Have fun!
Iâ€™d love to hear which one of these are your favorites and whether or not you own any of these tees! And if you know of a 1980′s shirt not on this list then please tell me about it. Leave a comment below in the comments section and let me know!
