#FlashbackFriday Gets In The Click!

Actually, I do love costume style jewelry!

Yesterday on Throwback Thursday, we watched Annoying Bobby torture his family with disappearing ink from a realistic-looking toy gun.  This was, of course, back in the day when we could have ink-shooting Uzi-type weapons and not have to worry about getting in trouble for owning one.

And while toys like this were fun for boys  (and some girls – it was the progressive 1980s, of course), girls were off playing with toy jewelry (not every aspect was progressive, peeps!).

In 1987, Mattel had an awesome way to make and wear toys – Color Clicks!

That’s right, plastic jewelry that one could click together interchangeable jewels to faux gold parts, and then click those parts to make gaudy but totally awesome click able jewelry!

And by clicking play, you too can get in the click, the color click!

(See what I did there?!)

It’s easy, it’s quick, it’s Color Clicks!

Seriously, look how easy this is!

I did not own these, but I did own the similar Sweet Secrets (little bejeweled toys that served as the body of a small doll) and Dress and Dazzle.

The 1980s loved making us look like overly decorated little girls, don’t you think?

I did this exact pose at Glamour Shots!

The 1980s. They were fun!

Also fun?  Weekends. Enjoy yours!
