12 Reminders Of Growing Up In Kentucky During The 1980s

Times change each decade, providing different generations with unique childhoods. The life that kids experience now is a far cry from what I grew up with in the mid 1970s and to late 1980s.

Please feel free to share favorite toys, shows, or clothing from your childhood era in the comments below!
