One of my favorite things to do when I was in 3rd grade was play Bop It. My aunt got it for me for Christmas and I’m pretty sure my parents wished she hadn’t, because it was a very annoying game to hear played over and over again. I recently came across this game in my attic and it got me thinking about all the other great games me and my brothers and sisters played when we were little. Therefore, for today’s gallery, I’ve gathered some of the most popular games from my childhood.
While looking at these games, I started to I feel like kids today are too concerned with technology and are missing out on all these imaginative and creative games of my youth. But then again, maybe it wasn’t healthy for me to pretend I was a troll or punch my friends with Sock’em Boppers. And maybe it was weird that my favorite thing about having a Tamagotchi was cleaning up its poop.
