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?

13/15 I missed the shoe question (guessed Birkenstocks) and the camera (I thought it was a Nikon). I still have a couple of those baseball helmets from Baskin-Robbins.

I only got 10/15 but that's not too bad considering I'm not a boomer & I'm Australian

Well _I'm_ a Boomer, but I missed Alkie (confused him with Big Boy) and Earth Shoe (I _guessed_ Birkenstocks). That last one really shouldn't have been in this list.

Everything on this list could be recognized as part of a Generation X childhood. You have to go farther back for a true Boomer quiz.

14 of 15 and I am Gen X (I remember somethings from my grandpas house). I had to guess on the shoe and I guessed wrong. I had NO idea so I tried the clogs.

This really is a GenX test. Earth Shoes were just a a blip, so, no shame there.

Missed the drive in shape. Thought it was salon hair dryers.

I was born in 1962, and I got 14 of 15 correct (the one I got wrong was the ice cream in a miniature baseball helmet).

Doing a quiz like this makes me feel much older than my 57 years but it’s pretty awesome that at least my long-term memory is still percolating right along!

Which remind me...does anyone remember what a percolator is??? 😉

I had an electric percolater!

I know it's a coffee pot--I think it's the kind with a little basket that holds the ground coffee in the pot of water. I love the way coffee smells, but can't stand the taste, so I never paid much attention (not to mention the last time I saw one, I was eight or nine).

l have NEVER been to Baskin Robbins in my Life! (it "kinda" looked like the smallest of the Battleship board-game pieces to me)!. just on a WILD guess l was gonna say ice-cream in a helmet, but it seemed too 0bvious. 0h Well.
