What were the 1980's like in your country, if you were alive then? I was born in the early 1980's in the US. The 80's as a little girl it was all about Carebears and My Little Pony. Fisher Price Little People toys. Record players. Listening to Madonna and Michael Jackson on the radio. Watching cartoons all Saturday morning. Ninja Turtles were popular. Sticker books were popular for kids too. Watched movies like The Land Before Time and American Tail.
