Child's First 100 Words from the 80's
« on: November 01, 2021, 08:50:51 PM »
I saw this at work today and I was amused so I had to take a picture!

There's a trend in children's books these days to appeal to parents' nostalgia, so you see a bunch of baby books with characters from great 80's movies like Goonies, Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, Labyrinth, The Princess Bride and more. Here's a little display we set up at work:

And what's this? Oh, there's a book to teach a child their first 100 Words ...from the 80's. XD And what is right on the cover? PONY! What a great word for a child to learn! lol.

And Fran Drescher and Sabrina and Jenny's number :lol:

Who are the four boys supposed to be with the map? Stand By Me? Was that an 80s movie?

edit: Whoops. I know how to post.

It could be Stand By Me; that came out in 1986, but I think it's supposed to be the Goonies.

Those books are awesome, BTW! And how fun!

I vote Goonies because it looks like a pirate map.  I don't think the kids in Stand By Me had a map (but it's been so long since I saw any part of that movie that I could easily be wrong about that).

I think it is! It would be been more obvious if they were in a convertible, though!  :lol:
