30 Things From Our Childhood That Are Hilariously Obsolete Now
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!
