30 Things From Our Childhood That Are Hilariously Obsolete Now

Published 4 years ago

Time flies incredibly fast yet sometimes we barely even notice it. And it’s only when we look back at the things we enjoyed as kids that we realize how rapidly everything is changing. It seems that just yesterday we were burning mixtapes into CD’s and begging our parents for the latest paper-thin Motorola flip phone – and it all seems so obsolete today.

If you feel like taking a trip down memory lane, today we have a collection of nostalgic and obsolete things from our childhoods that people shared to the /r/Nostalgia subreddit. From waiting weeks for the Scholastic book fair to tuning in to the old Cartoon Network after coming home from school, check out some nostalgic things from the past in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
