12 Things We Really Miss About the ’70s

It was a different time, when many electronics were just beginning to come on the market and we were blissfully enjoying our roller skates and flavored lip balms! Here are 12 things we remember fondly from the ’70s.

Cereal Box Toys

Back when cereal boxes had toys in them, you never knew what was going to land in your bowl. Or, if you were a fearless warrior you stuck your hand all the way down into the box and dug it out- consequences or no!

Candy Cigarettes

Back in the day we had lots of fun with these illicit candies, though I can’t say I ever cared for the flavor.

Yarn Hair Ribbons

How many of us sported the pigtails and yarn look back in the ’70s a la Cindy Brady?

Roll-on Lip Gloss

They were so yummy, it was hard not to just lick it off and re-apply in an endless loop. Seems like we went through this stuff awful quick!

Old School Playlist

The records stacked up on the record changer to make a “playlist” is something now lost to the ages. We could have listened to records all day long! And many of the portable records players on the market today don’t even have this feature at all.

Embroidered and Iron-On Patches

The fun patches on our clothes added so much personality to our denim. And going overboard was most of the fun!

Polyester & Polaroids - Things We Miss About the 1970s

Going Record Shopping

Was there anything better than picking through the latest records with your friends? We think not!

Watching Wild Kingdom

Sunday nights were special for many reasons, chief among them this wonderful show…”presented by Mutual of Omaha.” Who could forget those words?

Making a Chef Boyardee Pizza

We thought box pizza kits were the cat’s meow back then. Making a kit was so much fun. Who else used canned mushrooms on top?

Rainbow Belts

We thought we were supercool in our rainbow belts – seems like everyone had one thanks to Mork & Mindy and the rainbow suspenders!

Those Upside Down 7-Up Glasses

These were tons of fun to drink out, although occasionally confounding when absent-mindedly putting away the dishes.

Getting Really Good at Pinball

With machines in every arcade and bowling alley, we had plenty of practice getting to champion level at pinball. How did we ever enjoy all that noise?
