Why are there so many songs about rainbows...

Walking through the shops on the weekend, I realised that I am actually old! Oh yes...I have officially done a full cycle in fashion!! I thought the 80's died when I threw out my acid wash denim, hypercolour overalls, and crimping iron...but there it was in all it's fluro glory!

Not only recent fashion trends, but I have also noticed a resurgence in 80's characters over the past few years - transformers, strawberry shortcake, and...these guys. 

Do you remember Care Bears? I still have mine in my cupboard would you believe...a little faded, but still as chubby with a little heart on it's bottom!
I have been thinking of them a bit lately. Particularly when I see all these rainbow inspired parties popping up around the place. Maybe there will be a 'care bear' vibe invitation and party range coming....or maybe I'll just leave it in the 80's! 
What was your favourite childhood character?

  3. The 80s will never die, Jordan! I, for one, will ensure that!!! :-) Nancy Drew and Sweet Valley High still live on for me...!!!
