|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*
