If you were a child in 1983, there is no way that you didn't have at least a few Fisher Price Little People knocking around in your toy box. A cowboy, a fireman, a teacher, a construction worker, Grover from Sesame Street! They were lots of fun and had plenty of playsets. I just see them now and they make me happy.

Did you see the first Planes movie? Ugh, me too. It wasn't great. But, don't discount the second movie, "Planes, Fire & Rescue". This movie was sweet, funny and had all of the charm of Cars that you would have expected from the first movie. There are lots of funny moments and grown up humor that kids won't get but will get adults chuckling. And of course there are lots of lovable characters that kids will love too.

If you were lucky enough to have a new Cabbage Patch Kid in the early 80's the first thing you did was send in the birth certificate so you could "officially adopt" your new kid. During the next year, on their birthday, which was always the first of a month, you would get this card in the mail. I want to say it had some stickers in it too.
I also changed my kids names, because they often had some pretty funky names in the box.
I stopped getting cards after the first year. I guess they don't care that much about Cabbage Patch Adults.
