What was yours like? :p

What did you do to keep yourself entertained?

I thought mine was pretty good! when i was younger i used to go round to my friends houses and make up dance routines haha that was class. :D mambo no.5 was the best! :cool:

It's sad though that kids don't play out as much as they used to or play games with one another.

Oh thats another thing, what crazes do you remember going round when you were younger? :p

Used to play football pretty much all the time, whatever the weather. Little games of miss and your in ruled.

I remember playing legendary games of fox and the hound around our estate as well :D

Played armies as well, that was fun lol. *BANG BANG* "got you!"

Best craze was definatley POGS. The Tazo's were the best. Tipsies hehe

Played football mostly, Saturday and Sunday league, training twice a week after school and then with friends the other three school days. Fox and hound was always good fun aswell as lurkie. Played a lot of Mega Drive too.

POGS were big for a while but I mostly collected and swaped Premier League stickers. Shiny's were worth two regular stickers!

Fell into the wrong crowds when I was 13 and stopped all the football though and was smoking ****, weed and drinking every day instead.

So glad I grew out of all that **** and back to playing football, not smoked for three years, healthy and couldn't be happier. ;)

Yeh me and Lee were on the Mega Drive & Master System all the time. Mortal Kombat, Sonics, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe.....Good time :D

**** how could I forget the footy stickers. Used to collect those. Never managed to fill a book though. Got, got, got. got, got, got, got, got, got, got, NEED!

Fox and the hound????
Like a mashup of hide & seek and tigs. 2 teams of people one would go hide and the others would look and you had to catch them etc...

Even used to buy those shity Panini World Cup and Euro sticker books as well. Only Merlin knew how to make a proper sticker book.

I don't think I ever filled a book either but I still have a few of them in my cupboard, wish I had a scanner because I'd stick a few pages up for kicks.

I remember doing the gigantic wrestling sticker book - think the stickers were like 35p a pack...remember having a Lita sticker on my wardrobe, didn't deserve to be hidden away.

And also many Merlin EPL ones....great fun - awesome when there was less "foilies" or "shinies" so you could get wood when you got one....it then went to one per pack i think?. Agree with Greg about price rise to 26p though was annoying as when i got £1 pocket money and could only get 3 packs.

footie stickers were awesome, only filled one book i think, but had to send off for the last few lol. Played footy mostly, PS1 came along, wasnt really hooked on it though. Pokemon cards were probably THE main thing in my whole childhood, i remember when i got my shiny charizard, best feeling ever. I think i swapped about 7 cards for him lmao

I collected Pokémon cards, but they soon died down as I was just starting secondary school. Still got them all in a box somewhere.

Basically the same, pokemon cards, footy stickers, played football alot and i think we played fox n hound but we called it manhunt just hide and seek but in teams. The main phrase when i was younger was yo-yos everyone doing different tricks like rock the cradle etc but i didnt really get into it because i could only ever spin it up and down.

Playstation one was great with fifa's especially the one that you could have indoor football on radzinski for everton was amazing and the orignal resident evils and tomb raiders,

those were the days
