We all have some things leftover from our younger days in our possession today. So, in this thread, this aims to ask the Q, "What stuff reminds of you of when you were young(er)?"

My vintage VG collection. I play it, and I feel like it's 1997/98 all over again; and I get caught up in the game, and nothing else matters.......... good times. I miss those days.

I was just a kid when I started writing music (arranging more than composing.) This was the first great sound card for the PC and really made the difference for beginning compositions of my own!

It got the ball rolling... plus I was the one to propose Radio Shack Canada sell the product. I put on demonstrations in my local Radio Shack and got a discount on the card for doing so. Not bad for a 12-year-old. ;)

As old and worthless as it is now, I still keep it around to make me smile... ah... the good ol' days...

Funny enough as I took off my Jumper, (Sweater), this evening it was reminding me of when I was young and a certain girl tried it on when it was new back in 1987.

Possibly the item I have had the longest is my Sparkys magic piano album.

I had a couple of new female friends come around my house when I was around 30, so whilst I went to make them a cup of coffee, I asked if they would like to listen to a record, they said yes, so I put on Sparky and the Talking Trains as a joke, but could see by their faces they thought I was a bit odd.

Vinyl record albums. Loved the cover art, and the size and heft of the records. Hated the inherent dust noise, but it was fun to have them to look through. Digital files just ain't the same.
