A 70's Kind of Gal?!

  • Feeling.... groovy
  • The sky is rainbow


You wore a rainbow shirt that was half-sleeves, and the rainbow went up one sleeve, across your chest, and down the other. (and I had a really cool jacket like that too!)

You made baby chocolate cakes in your my cousin's Easy Bake Oven and washed them down with snow cones from your my cousin's Snoopy Snow Cone Machine.

You had wanted to have that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a stethoscope that actually worked.

You owned a bicycle with a banana seat and a plastic basket with flowers on it. (purple)

You learned to skate with actual skates (not roller blades) that had metal wheels.

You thought Gopher from Love Boat was cute (Admit it!)

(There was no other choice!)

You had nightmares after watching watched Fantasy Island.

You had rubber boots for rainy days and Moon boots for snowy days.

You had either a "bowl cut" or "pixie," not to mention the "Dorothy Hamil" because your Mom was sick of braiding your hair. People sometimes often thought you were a boy.

Your Holly Hobbie sleeping bag diary and puzzle was your most prized possession.

You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers.

You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon. (Had one!)

You had the Donnie and Marie dolls with those pink and purple satiny shredded outfits.

You spent hours in your backyard on your metal swing set with the trapeze. The swing set tipped over at least once.

You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color.
(Two-tone blue; two-tone purple and red & pink)

You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones with hard sole & the buckle).  (I wasn't allowed to have those "grown-up" shoes - but I wanted them...)

You also had a pair of salt-water sandals.

You wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really bad; you wore that Little House on the Prairie-inspired plaid, ruffle shirt with the high neck in  at least one school picture; and you despised Nellie Olson!

You wanted your first kiss to be at a roller rink.

Your hairstyle was described as having "wings" or "feathers" and you kept it "pretty" with the comb you kept in your back pocket. (Dorthy Hamill haircut!)

You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as her friends, BlueberryMuffin and Huckleberry Pie. wasn't that 80's?

You carried a Muppets Peanuts lunch box to school and it was metal, not plastic.

You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazzard was your boyfriend. (No, but I watched it)

Every now and then "It's a Hard Knock Life" from the movie, "Annie"will pop into your brain and you can't stop singing it the whole day.

You had Star Wars action figures, too!

It was a big event in your household each year when the "Wizard of Oz" would come on TV. Your mom would break out the popcorn and sleeping bags!

You often asked your Magic-8 ball the question: "Who will I marry. Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or Rick Springfield?"

You completely wore out your Grease, Saturday Night Fever, and Fame soundtrack record album. (and Blondie)

You tried to do lots of arts and crafts, like yarn and Popsicle-stick God's eyes, decoupage, or those weird potholders made on a plastic loom.

You made Shrinky-Dinks and put iron-on kittens on your t-shirts!

You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape player up to the speaker. (I still have some - Rick Springfields in concert - I was SO pissed when the tape stopped while he was dedicating a song to his Dad...UH!)

You couldn't wait to get the free animal poster that came when you ord ered books from the Weekly Reader book club. Double score if it was a teddy bear dressed in clothing

You learned everything you needed to know about girl issues from Judy Blume books (Are you there God, It's me, Margaret.)

You thought Olivia Newton John's song "Physical" was about aerobics. (I wanted to be like Sandy so badly...)

You wore friendship pins on your tennis shoes, or shoelaces with heart or rainbow designs.

You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer.

You had a Big Wheel with a brake on the side, and a Sit-n-Spin.

You had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat.

You spent all your allowance on smurfs and stickers for your sticker album!
12 speaketh.

HA HA, I was named after Laura Ingalls Wilder! My mom also used to watch it all the time and when I was of age to watch television, she sat me down in front of all the reruns. Little House on the Prarie was the best!:)

According to this article from american greetings, strawberry shortcake was created for greeting cards in 1980, and made into dolls in 1981. Therefore, you are correct that she and her friends, are, in fact, much younger than this quiz implies. Aaaand, I'm done.
