We all have relative stories of growing up that today we wouldn’t be allowed to do. We asked some our fans what some of the things were that they did as kids that would would raise some serious eyebrows today and here’s what we got:

We loved to play outside, unattended.

And We knew it was time to come home..

By the way, we also trick o’treated unattended!

We all rode our bicycles with no helmets.


Buzzfeed

Not to mention, we also did tricks while riding, whether we rode with no handlebars


Pinterest

We all skated with metal roller skates with no ball bearing and with skateboards, sans knee pads.


Flavorwire

When we were kids, we drank water from a hose, not from a Brita bottles or plastic bottles.


Pinterest

We rode in cars without seat belts  Note: And, if we were to be told to put our seat belts on, they certainly would never meet the safety standards required in this day or age!


Pinterest

We rode in the back of pickup trucks without worry.

And as babies, we were put in these odd looking car seats that looked like booster seats we used in restaurants. Mind you, we were facing forward in the front seat!

We climbed trees

and played in rusted playgrounds.


Playscapes

We played games like Cowboys and Indians and Cops and Robbers and didn’t worry about our games being “PC” (Politically Correct) or the fact that we were running around with toy guns (sometimes with caps in them).

We ate pop rocks and drank soda, and didn’t die like the urban legend feared us we would.

Thrillist

We played so-called “dangerous” games in the schoolyard that today are considered injury risks, like dodgeball, kickball, baseball (again, without helmets), tag, touch football, to name a few…


Pinterest

And we walked to and from school, alone or with friends, without any fears.


Pinterest

We smoked candy cigarettes and pretended they were real! We thought it was cool.


Pinterest

We also worked odd jobs before there was a law about having to be a certain age to do so.


Pinterest

These were fun innocent times. We didn’t worry about getting dirty or live with fear that we were unsafe. We didn’t have bacteria hand sanitizers everywhere and mercurochrome was the standard in everyone’s vanities. We never worried about guns and we never worried about helmets.

We played with Dangerous Toys That Were Later Pulled Off the Market!

We were just kids. Boy, how things have changed!
