When I wrote this category this is what I was looking at. I have always been a Strawberry Shortcake girl. I have some many old and unique things. With in the world, my fav was the Peculiar Purple Pieman from Porcupine Peak. He may not be in the new kid shows but he is in the new graphic novel series. #octphotochallenge #80stoyinbookform

jpmcwisemorgan I bought Strawberry Shortcake and I really want them all. Sigh... 3y
LibrarianRyan @jpmcwisemorgan I bought them all (but the New York comic con exclusive which is the only place to get Huck pie) but one has not come in yet. For what ever reason Orange Blossom doesn't ship til late this month. Each smells okay, but together they smell divine. Especially if you accidentally leave them in your car. 3y
jpmcwisemorgan I'm going to have to get them. I know it. 3y

I wasn't alive in the 80s, so I had to use the Internet to help me find an #80sToyInBookForm. But as soon as I saw these Monchhichi Dolls, I immediately thought of one of my favorite childhood books. My brother and I demanded to hear this story so often that my mother started calling us her little monkeys. #OctPhotoChallenge

Marchpane I ❤️ monchhichi! 3y
Foxyfictionista Monchichis always freaked me out a little bit. 3y
GirlMeetsBook @Foxyfictionista I feel the same way! 3y

#80sToyInBookForm YES! This one was all of them! Adventure cover, some PAC-Man inside, all those 80's music and movies, toys and games references!

The nostalgia is strong with this one!
A full 👾👾two Alien Invaders Recommendation!


RebL Ugh! I just got booted from my library audio loan. This book is so good. I was going to stay up listening. Now, I'll just stay up annoyed. Can I borrow your copy? 3y
Eliza-beta I know! Such an amazing book. I'm so jealous of people who haven't read it yet 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @RebL maybe... do you have audible? And have you ever received a onebook from them before? 3y
RebL Oh, wow. Another testimony to the great supportive community here at Litsy. I decided to buy a paper copy and make my son read it too. Thank you for your generosity. 3y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @RebL you are very welcome, I'm always willing to enable another reader when I can. LOL. You and your son might like his Armada book too, it's not as great as RP1, nothing can match that, but I still enjoyed it quite a bit and it was also narrated my Whil Wheaton 3y

Sadly this is my only offering for #80stoyinbookform. They have been revamped for a new generation, but the OG Strawberry Shortcake and Blueberry Muffin were my homegirls back in the day.

LibrarianRyan Yes they were. I not a fan of the new version. 3y
[DELETED] 3517561138 @LibrarianRyan yes! Thank you! The new ones are totally lame! And there is not even a Purple Pie Man threatening them! Where is the suspense? 3y

This is not the book I have (hidden somewhere amongst my collection of 80s things) but it's as close as I could find. Following the instructions was the only way I ever solved the Rubiks Cube and of course I memorized them and tried to impress people with my abilities. It didn't work. #octphotochallenge #80stoyinbookform

DeeLew I did the same thing! Got the book for Christmas and memorized the solution. 😂 3y

I haven't read this, but I was looking around for an #80stoyinbookform for the #Octphotochallenge and came across a book about Mario and Nintendo. I realized video game history would be really interesting to read about more! Something to consider for the future! Any recs?

This #80stoyinbookform is Alf at the Zoo. For some reason, my friends and I loved watching Alf when we were in high school. Trying to watch it now, I can't understand how I ever watched it. I had an Alf stuffed animal and other Alf toys. We thought he was hilarious. #octphotochallenge

LibrarianRyan Love it. Never knew it was a book. Not surprised. 3y
Hoopiefoot I loved ALF! 3y
jpmcwisemorgan My uncle loved ALF! 3y
Zelma I was a huge ALF. I still remember episodes like the neighbor making a statues out of mashed potatoes a la Close Encounters. Or when he loses his memory and thinks he's Wayne Schlagle, insurance agent. Omg, I watched too much tv as a kid. 😳 3y
Melwilk @LibrarianRyan @Hoopiefoot @jpmcwisemorgan @Zelma I am happy to know there are other Alf fans out there 😂 3y
