5566ArticleVaporman87That sucks. I hate seeing/hearing about the state of most malls these days. There are a few bright spots here and there... actually most malls I've visited in West Virginia are doing well (Barboursville/Huntington Mall, Parkersburg Mall, Beckley area mall). The mall I'm most familiar with from my youth (Parkersburg) recently added a whole new section for Ross, Petland, and some other anchor-type stores. Dec 07, 2021View
5572ArticleBeatles_ToyboxThanks for sharing! Growing up in rural Oregon, one of the few things for us to do on Friday nights (maybe it was Saturday) was go to the small Catholic church for skate night. They had ancient roller-skates that they would rent to us and a big chunk of the community would fill the place as we would skate in a circle around the small basketball court. I broke my arm there in fourth grade, but it didn't stop me from lacing up the skates for a school reward trip to Skate Palace in Salem. Looking back on it, roller skating was huge for me as a kid. Unfortunately I never mastered any cool skating tricks but had fun anyway. Most skate places around here are now closed and the church hasn't had skate night for a very long time.Skating Through The YearsDec 21, 2021View
5579ArticleoniparNice story, loved it! You know, interestingly, I never went to a skating rink, and only in my adult years did I even realize roller skating was "a thing" in the 80s. But I can totally relate to the arcade savior, because I'd always gravitate to the arcade selection at my local bowling alley.Skating Through The YearsJan 15, 2022View
5599ArticleVaporman87I think there are levels of disappointment that could be discussed here, but I'm going to stick to the less personal ones... more focused on product and school life than life at home and relationships. I was very disappointed when Masters of the Universe abruptly went belly up in '87. They had some pretty cool things planned that would have been awesome to see on shelves, even though I was growing out of collecting them around that time. I was disappointed that a school levy that would have created a brand new high school that would have been ready by the time my age group arrived there did not pass.Top four disappointing moments of childhoodFeb 08, 2022View

5603ArticleJulieI'm so sorry you had those bad experiences before, my sweet love @Benjanime. :'( Well, I have more bad experiences after the childhood than before it honestly, but of course I had some countless ones before as well, like being bullied, betrayal, false friends and other worse things. You deserve a far better fate, my beloved @Benjanime. I do love you!❤❤Top four disappointing moments of childhoodFeb 09, 2022View

5608ArticleOldSchool80sI do agree that prizes for most contests including school fundraisers were usually letdowns. Same thing if you ever ordered anything from inside a comic book! Your childhood timeframe seems to be well after mine, so do not relate to the other 2 you mentioned. I do relate to Vaporman87's story about MOTU going away. I also would compare to favorite TV shows being cancelled and/or seeing a movie that you thought was going to awesome only to be sorely mistaken.Top four disappointing moments of childhoodMar 06, 2022View
5626Article back in middle school I had a small collection of Pokémon figures from some cheap gacha machines around the town, one of the girls who used to play with us got mad at me for some reason and decided to flush my Pokes away, literally. The whole class got mad at her and I did too, but I was about to let it go when her mom got me a small set of Pokémon figures from a toy shop, those were a bit more expensive than the cheap gachas I had, so I felt kinda guilty accepting them :p I did forgive her of course, we were kids, and kids do stupid thingsTop four disappointing moments of childhoodMar 31, 2022View
