    Bloody hell! Great thread.

    I have a client in at 10 for a Brazilian Blowdry. At this rate, she'll be getting me half asleep! LOL

    As a kid of both decades...let me think...

    80's kids had Transformers and Bros.
    90's kids had Reebok Pumps and Vanilla Ice.

    I think I know which decade I preferred.

    ;)

    80's kids had walkmans and boom boxes

    90's kids had beepers.

    I think I prefer the walkman to drown mommy dearest out rather than be just 7 digits away from her loving tirades.

    :blink:

    80's kids had Button Moon, Raggy Dolls, Fraggle Rock and Trap Door (and NOT replays!)
    90's kids had Teletubbies :confused:
    80's kids had Spectrums
    90's kids had the original NES and Sega Megadrive...

    I think both decades had their good points lol
