    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking to get all the kids born in the 80's to list their best memories from the early nineties. It can be what was on TV, the toys we played with, the sweets we had, the games we played, etc.

    Like: Sharky & George! (the crime busters of the sea)
    The sleeper yo-yo's that Rohan bloke used to advertise!
    Bulldog from one side of the playground to the other!


    Any others?

    Does this make them a 90's kid rather than an 80's one?

    I remember nearly peeing my pants when my school friend showed me Gremlins 2 on video. It turned out to be my favourite film for a couple of years.

    Someone else introduced me to the Terminator films. I think this was just after T2 had become available in the shops. He had a double-video boxset.

    TMNT! I remember when that film came out! I couldn't wait to see it, but it was actually a bit dissapointing.

    The Mario film was CLASSIC though!

    Where I'm from, everybody called them 'Tip-Tops'.

    And those blue/pink fizzy bottles were called... wait for it..... orgasms. Yeah, I was 6 years old asking the lady behind the counter for 20 orgasms. That stopped when I got to a certain age and realised what I was saying.

    Do you remember Twist N Shakes???

    On thinking, im not usre if they were actually called twist n shakes?

    They were drinks in a plastic bottle usually brightly coloured and you twisted the top off, i think they were fruit flavoured/full of sugar,flavourings and colourings. Any ideas what they might be called people?
