13 Characters You Slept With 20 Years Ago...

Thirteen Characters Kids Slept With 20 Years Ago

Taken from Sears catalogs in 1987 & 1988, these are the characters you slept with, envied your cousin for having, or put your kids to bed with...

(In no particular order)

#1 Pound Puppy Bedding -- complete with musical pillow.

#2 An American Tail Bedding

#3 Ghost Busters Sleeping Bag

#4 McKids Jammies: Notable for several reasons, such as cape and mask (no, the Ronald McDonald pj set doesn't come with a wig -- that's the kid's own hair), and the fact that these pajamas are part of the debut McKids line (1987).

#5 My Little Pony Sleeping Bag

#6 Popples Bedding

#7 Snoopy Sleeping Bag

#8 Retro Boys PJs: Many sets to choose from, presumably because little boys don't want to stop & sleep, so we dress them in costumes so they think they are still playing. Here the models wear Thundercats & Lazer Tag; behind them are Marshal Brave Starr, Superman, Transformers, Silver Hawks, and Masters of the Universe jammies.

#9 Retro Girls PJs: Fewer character selections than the boys, girls could be SuperGirl or She-Ra, Princess of Power.

#10 Pee-Wee's Playhouse Sleeping Bag (I'm resisting all comments!)

#11 Lady LovelyLocks and the Magical Pixietails Bedding.

#12 Barbie & The Sensations Sleeping Bag

#13 Sesame Street Sleeping Bag

OK, so you got more than thirteen, but I cut it as short as I could... I smell a sequel. *wink*

My kids all had super hero PJ's (Wonder woman under roos and Hulk PJ's) This was fun.

Love this! Just last night I watched Jem for the first time in 15 years on Youtube. All the memories flooding back! :-)

Those are too cool. I had some Underoos as a kid. I wonder if they still make those?

I had, quite happily too, forgotten all about Popples :P

Oh my gosh! Serious flashbacks happening here!
Wow! I had Wonder Woman Under roos, and popples and loved Jem and all that! Thanks for the fun trek down 80's lane.

Oh what I trip down memory lane :-)

I had forgotten about Popples and those girls' pjs, well, I just hope those don't come back in style LOL

I think my little girl would love the My Little Pony sleeping bag, it's funny to see all those old toys revitalized - maybe they'll bring back the Popples ;-)

Hey my Underoo pajamas were the height of fashio...I used to run outside in my Wonder Woman ones all the time much to my mother's frustration. My sister had the Pound Puppy bedding, but no musical pillow...thank GOD!
Great list though the title got me for a sec :)

I was too old for these to be for me but I remember some of the characters from my cousins' rooms, toys, etc.

Great list and so much more interesting with the photos to bring each item to life.

What ever happened to Holly Hobby? She graced my bedroom during the late 70's.

Thanks for stopping by my Freaks and Geeks from I Read Banned Books edition.

I never had any of those! A deprived childhood, I guess...
