Ah, the good old beach days when we were kids. Childhood holidays were always spent at the beach; it was fun in the sun, and there were waves and sand – two of the most important things in any kid’s life, right after cootie-repellent and He-Man.

So I’m here to talk about all those items you received from your parents when you were a kid at the beach, YOU DO KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT! We all had a shark tooth-necklace, a boogie board with absurd pictures on them, and don’t lie if you had at least one jar of shells. Nostalgia to the max. If you didn’t own at least one of these things in your life at some point, we assume you went to the Spur in Pofadder during holiday season.

Here are a few things that may have blown your mind when you were a little tyke, running around on the beach with a Baywatch-like Speedo or a Minnie Mouse Bikini…
