LOL . . . . a lot of that sounds very familiar. I think that I still have a slap bracelet somewhere in my house . . . . and a banana clip or two, too! I know that I wore a ponytail on the side of my head more than once - but there's no pictorial evidence. :Hahaha:

And, the Pound Puppies! They were very big when I was a young girl. I loved those!

These bring back so many memories. My childhood... I actually miss some of this stuff. Watching Saved By The Bell wearing my slap braclet and shirt in a knot. And Alf... I loved that guy. Thanks for the memories.

I`ll admit I still have New Kids On The Block and a Tiffany tape.
(Why throw out something still useful?)

And I did a lot of these things too. Got in trouble with the slap bracelets though.

Did you ever pretend to be Doogie Howser in computer class at school?
