I Feel Old

Some co-workers and I were discussing various "back to school" items from our youth and I brought up the popular Trapper Keeper. Our 20-year-old college intern had no idea what I was talking about.

I remember Trapper Keeprs!! Mom would never buy them for me from school, though. That brings back a painful memory.... :)

I think I had a Transformers Trapper Keeper one year.

That was cool.

I loved Trapper Keepers! I think I had one every year in elementary school!

My brother's had the snap button one like the one pictured in the link. Mine had clouds and rainbows and a velcro closure.

Oh my goodness, I love those things! I might have to go buy one for old times sake :-)

Whoa, even at 20 she should know what a Trapper Keeper is! If it makes you feel any better, i'm 24 and Trapper Keepers were the height of cool when I was in elementary school...

Ya, well how about this. We were having a conversation with one of my highschoolers last week and my friend said, "Do you know who Chuck Norris is?" Her response, "Ya, he's in Dodge Ball." Unbelievable.

We have a 22 year old college intern. She had heard of them, but remembered them as "bulky binders", and not the cool accessory that they were to our generation. She is still clearly not a child of the 80s!

Wow. They are trying to revive the trapper keeper.
Unfortunately, the velcro is gone, but they aren't trying to market to us children of the '80s.
