That's Like Totally Tubular, Dude

AdvantagesBaggy, Clangers, Button Moon, Danger Mouse, Fingerbobs, Pob......Need I say more??

DisadvantagesWell the music section isn't up and running yet and no attic attack in the speccy section

"Wooohoooo.......here we shall all take a trip back, way back (well a good few years back anyway) to a time when childrens TV was actually good and the simple delights of space hoppers and Rubik cubes won out over those of robotic dogs and Playstation 2s. I am, of course, talking about a trip to the good old 80's and the time machine to take us there shall be the wonderful 80sNostalgia.com. Having been born in 1984 I was only a very young un during ..." Read review

A Blast From The Past

AdvantagesReminders of childhood 'stuff'

DisadvantagesMusic section and search facility still under construction

"Soda Streams, ra-ra skirts, space hoppers and po-go sticks. Airwolf, The A-Team, Worzel Gummidge and Wacky Races. The Rubik Cube and Sinclair computers. Ring any bells? If they do, then this site may prove to be an entertaining trip down memory lane for you. If not, just take a look anyway, and get an insight into 80’s life. 80snostalgia.com, as the name suggests, is a site about the 1980s. The home page gives a brief description of what ..." Read review

Can You Remember.......

AdvantagesLoads and loads of content. Great looking and fast website.

DisadvantagesA few missing pieces in the TV section.

"Can you remember when you watched the A-Team every saturday night and He-Man was the master of the universe. The days when Yuppies were the only people with mobile phones, and they had to be carried around in bags! When you spent days fiddling with the "bodacious" rubik cube. Those were the 80's. Probably the worst decade ever, but still one that I look back at with happiness. Well now I can relive those days simply by logging onto this site, www.80snostalgia.com. ..." Read review

A blast from the past!

AdvantagesGood content, fun to reminice

DisadvantagesSome links are broken or don't exist

"Kids TV today - they just don't make them like they used to! Remember coming home from school at 3.30 and plonking yourself in front of the telly to watch Philip Schofield and Ed the duck in the CBBC broom cupboard or tuning into CITV? Aah the good old days - brings back some fond memories! Surfing the internet one day a few years ago, when I was a university student, I came across 80's nostalgia.com. Now here's a site to while away the hours when ..." Read review

Frankie says relax...

AdvantagesEasy to use website, the true 80s fan will get lost in pure happiness.

DisadvantagesMessage board really needs a re-think, as does a few more regular updates.

"It's Friday, so it's time for my weekly rant! *smiles* I think most of you should enjoy this one though, as it's probably the site you'll find me loitering on the most (when I'm not on Ciao). 80sNostalgia.com does exactly what it says on the box, or rather the little square tube your sitting in. If you were a child of the 80s, no doubts you've found it hard to let go to the things you loved. From Transformers to Go-Bots, He-man to She-Ra, the list ..." Read review

I went to school with Pogo Patterson and Ro-land

AdvantagesRelive those 80`s Memories

DisadvantagesRealise you are getting old

"So here’s an Op for the older generation; well not that old actually, I was born in 1970 so I spent my later school years and my days at Catering College ensconced in the decade we love to call the 80`s. Most thirty something’s will be uttering “God! I remember that!” as they read and enjoy a trip down memory lane as we look at the 80s; the decade of leg warmers, ZX Spectrums and Betamax Videos. Nostalgia is all the rage at the moment; websites ..." Read review

Those Were The Days

AdvantagesGreat if the 80s were your era

DisadvantagesIf they weren't - don't bother, you won't 'get it'

"What a great idea, an 80's site. I was just a kid in the 70s and the 90s was, well crap really. If the 80's was your era and 'they don't make songs like those anymore' than this is the site for you. Theres loads of info about TV programs of the time along with Synopses, pictures, sound clips and cCharacters. Loads of 'Speccy' (Spectrum) games which you can play online 80s memories, terms and oaods of news from the time. There's a link to 80s ..." Read review

I could stay there forever

AdvantagesThe chance to relive the 80s

DisadvantagesThe chance to relive your teenage angst

"If there was anything the internet was fantastic for, it is for bringing together people of like minds. And that's what this site does with a manner of excellence! If you were a kid in the 80's (and I mean of virtually any age - was only 11 by the time they ended!) then there's going to be something in here to make you say "Oh my God...I'd forgotten all about that/those/him/her/how sad I looked, etc., etc. But then, within days you'll find yourself ..."

Back to childhood

Advantagesvery funny

Disadvantageslayout is nothing special

"After initially not being able to find the site, I was very happy when I finally got onto 80snotalgia.com. I was fairly young during the 80s but the site still jogged my memory. Dungeons and dragons, Mouse Trap, pixie boots- who could forget?? Although this site would be better for those with a better memory of the decage remembered for the New Romantics and terrible fashions, I think anyone who was alive in the era will enjoy the it. The site ..." Read review

80's computer games rock!

AdvantagesTons of info

DisadvantagesSetup is kind of ancient.

"I can't believe someone devoted time to cataloging the great games of the 80's. Commodore 64 and 128 were pretty much the staple of my existence during this hilarious decade. Great selection of titles to remenisce about. Great Site. Good links to an emulators. As for the rest, there is pretty amazing depth into areas of media I have completely forgot about. I mean the Ewoks cartoon...come on that is great. Not only that but you can actually purchase ..." Read review
