As a child of the 80’s , one of my favorite blogs to read is My Side of the Laundry Room, a site dedicated to posts about pop and nerd culture. As I once stated about Rob, he “takes us back to the 80’s with his great posts about games, movies, cartoons and memorabilia of that era. He highlights forgotten gems, and his fond reminiscing make for a epic site.  He could give Parzival in Ready Player One a run for his money!”

He has written several posts about toys from the 80’s he nostalgically remembers, and when the Green Onion contributed an additional post about toys from the era, I noticed they were very boy-centric. Thus, I volunteered up a post about 10 Totally Awesome Toys For Girls Of The 80’s from the viewpoint of a totally rad female (me!).
