Awesome Retro Gift Ideas for 80's Kids

So this sweet gem is a little something old, mixed with a little something new. When I was 10 years old I had the original pink boom box. It looked a hell of a lot like the one available, but mine was full blown retro.

This one though is still really cool, and would make for an awesome gift for an 80's kid!

Have a fan of the Beetles? Don't know what to get them this holiday? Well check out the Yellow Bus Lunchbox Tin!

Back in the late 80's early 90's the ice cream man had to stop selling these because they were banned. Some garb about these candy delights being an early influencer! Please! Check em out!

Now these shoes were all the rage back in the 80's. I think every kid in town had a pair of these. In those days though we didn't have awesome neon colors. Converse was basic black or red, like these.

Oh and hello... what 80's kid didn't have a lava lamp!? Odds are though that 80's kid packed away their lava lamp, broke it, or opened it up to feel the lava! It's been nearly 30 years, I'm sure that 80's kid could use a new lava lamp! Groovy!

Can't forget about Sno Cones man! These icy treats were pretty much only obtainable at carnivals... or if you were a lucky 80's kid, you had that awesome snoopy snow cone machine. Although it's no Snoopy machine, this retro sno cone ice maker should delight you just as much.

Do you know an 80's kid with a sweet tooth? If you answered yes, than this one of a kind 1980's candy gift basket is sure to have them drooling!

Now this one, Im sure a lot of you know what it is, yet you have not seen one since your got a boo-boo at granny's house close to 30 years ago. Yep, it's a freakin ice pack bag!

Anyone remember these? Back in the 80's you were not cool unless you had a pair of these!

Or hey, why not bring back some ultra childhood memories? I bet it's been forever since you saw one of these:
