Remember 8-Track tapes? Listening to records on a turntable? Bunny-ear television sets?
Yeah, me either.
I was reading Monica’s “10 Things Your 2011 Baby Will Never Know” post over at Being Pregnant and it struck me just how many common — even modern — products will be completely foreign to today’s babies. So in an attempt to hold on to the past, here are five ways you can surround your little one with yesteryear:
Cuddlier than a USB drive. (Black Floppy Disk pillow, $38 from mymimi)
Put your baby’s birth announcement under that funny-looking pretend phone. Landline, honey. It’s called a rotary landline. ($9.99 from Giraffes and Stuff)
Monica predicts that 2011 babies will never listen to CDs, never-mind cassettes. Will kids even know where the term mixtape comes from? (Screen-printed “Mixtape Onesie,” $18 from Heather Jeany)
This one is my favorite: Wrap your iPhone 4 in this clever VHS iPhone cover. Your kids will marvel at the antiquated technology while playing Angry Birds. ($9.99 from Vinyl Studio)
Read Monica’s Top 10 list over at Being Pregnant, which includes everything from fax machines to Yellow Pages.
