Guys... I don't think many people would be that suprised by this stuff 😂 Although kids do play with devices now, some of my friends used to play with trading cards, and I think I used to go to Blockbusters with my parents (I don't remember, but they've told me)

Throwing spears at woolly mammoth for dinner

Using sticks to start a fire to keep warm and for light

Living in a cave, also using the walls of said cave to doodle
