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?

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.

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??? 😉

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!

They don’t look like earth shoes!

The Earth Shoes of the 70s were a little different than today's. The selling point was it was supposed to be like walking in sand..with heel lower than than your toes. It had the same wide toe bed as today..and was all leather with laces. Mine was a natural saddle leather color...and i wore them everywhere as a kid...even camping! Couldn't destroy em'. They came in regular shoe box put into a drawstring burlap bag.
