Only 1960s kids remember these particularly unique things

If you grew up in the incredible 1960s in America, you would probably remember these unique things that were popular during that era. Let’s see how many you can remember.

First up is the ‘Bomb Shelter.’ This structure was designed to protect your family against bombs. The original bomb shelters date back to 1833. However, household bomb shelters rose in popularity in the 1960s.

For entertainment, you couldn’t beat the creepy TV series, ‘The Twilight Zone,’ famously narrated by Rod Serling. The science-fiction and horror elements of the show scared viewers from 1959 through 1964.

Another sci-fi TV delight was ‘The Outer Limits.’ The show ran from 1963 through 1965 and scared many TV viewers, and it was even revived in 1995 and ran until 2002.

If you weren’t watching TV, you might have been playing the addictive ‘Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots.’ The two-player action game features two robot boxers that battle it out as you control them. The Mattel toy company also created another hit toy, ‘Major Matt Mason.’ He was an astronaut who lived and worked on the Moon.

The popular 1960s magazine ‘Scout Life’ formerly called ‘Boys’ Life’ was a monthly publication by ‘The Boy Scouts of America.’ ‘Scout Life’ appealed to boys across the nation.

Another fantastic ‘60s TV show was ‘Star Trek,’ created by Gene Roddenberry. The franchise has expanded into decades of success after debuting in 1966. One final unhealthy memory from the ‘60s involves the cigarette, which grew in popularity after being featured in movies and TV shows. All these memories should remind you of 1960s America.
