    OMG LIGHT UP SHOES! Omg those magazines!

    Do you remember those other shoes with the toys inside?? I had those when I was 11.

    The world really has changed!
    I loved them shoes! I can't even begin to imagine an 11yr old wearing them now though. They're too busy posting 'Like if you would date me' pictures on instagram.

    I know I'm not alone in thinking this, but I find it a little odd.

    My brother just turned 12 on wednesday and he is in year 7 and he seems so much older than he is, I talk to him as if I were talking to somebody my age.

    I remember when I was in year 7 and although I was a very sensible and mature child, I remember inviting my friend over at the beginning of the year and playing with our dolls in my garden. I was 11 then, now a days for an 11 year old to do that seems a little odd.

    I suppose it's the advancement in technology but can anyone relate?
    Lies! I'm 21 and I'm still far from grown up, lol.

    Really?

    I actually think I remember myself being slightly embarrassed that I still played with dolls at that age, now that I look back I think it's cute lol. So innocent and unaware of how I was going to mature in the following years....

    :lolwut: okay creep...

    Playing out, on scooters bikes etc and making games but not dolls. Dolls would have been too symbolic of babyhood and we'd be all 'Err excuse me dolls? I wear a sports bra so know yourself'
