Only a Boomer can recognize all these shapes

What are these silhouettes!?

No, this is not an ink-blot personality test. These shapes are very specific things. You probably had to live through the 1960s and 1970s to recognize them all.

They range from edible items to cartoon characters to toys to gadgets. Take your best guess!

  1. What is this?
  2. What was this used for in a school?
  3. What kind of food came in this container?
  4. Where would you find this quirky character?
  5. Which shampoo came in this bottle?
  6. Who manufactured this gadget?
  7. Who are these two?
  8. What was this little fellow helping sell?
  9. What is this?
  10. What toys is being played with here?
  11. What is this toy doing?
  12. Where would you find this contraption?
  13. What was the flavor of this snack?
  14. What is this?
  15. Finally, what was this funky footwear called?

On the west coast of Canada we had "Roots"... Originally shoes with negative heel. . . Now a HUGE sportswear / Backpack line. . . What year did the Earth Shoe first appear?

I remember Earth Shoes were big at my high school starting in 1975, but then we probably trailed the rest of the country when it came to fads. Before the Earth Shoe craze we guys wore platform shoes in the early 70s... talk about extremes!

The last movie I saw at a drive-in was E.T.--my little sister was seven and she kept asking if we knew what happened next because she'd never been to the movies before (she's 44 now and doesn't do that anymore). And, just from the shape of it, I'd say that helmet sundae has whipped cream on top--it better have, anyway (excuse me a moment, I need ice cream).
