My sister and I? Totally children of the 80s. Whenever there is a meme posted that kids should remember something from the 80s we pretty much relate to every single one.
Gem, He-Man, She-Ra, Popples, Legwarmer, cassette tapes, jelly shoes, rainbow brite, light brite, neon colors, side ponytails. The list goes on and on!
How about the permed hair on my aunt? 80s! Oh, and the jeans jacket (or is it denim jacket?)
Or, the same floral-pattern top and bottom that I’m wearing.
And culottes (of which I just had to look up the correct spelling!). Yikes. Especially with the ruffly socks. But, my sister is somehow wearing super shorty-shorts? How are they both 80’s appropriate? Thank goodness there isn’t a picture of the jams my mom made for us. (You know, like MC Hammer wore with the velcro wings?)
Apparently, you all love your 80s, too! (Nobody said ALF?)
If my mom hasn’t tossed it yet (hopefully, she knows the value of a collectible), I will have to go looking for my pink Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper. I had to have that. In fact, I’m certain I saved and saved to buy it for myself because it wasn’t allowed at school! I guess the velcro was too much of a distraction?
Guess what? Trapper Keeper is back and then sent me one to check out!
This year Mead® is introducing a brand new, full line of products with updated features and design elements. They’ve changed out that velcro for a more durable and sturdy snap closure. But it still smells the same!
Snapper Trapper™ makes it easier than ever to snap supplies in and out of the binder without the hassle of opening the rings, saving busy students valuable time in between classes. The new line with the Snapper Trapper includes the famous binder, folders, notebooks, dividers and student planners. Right now they come in red, blue, green and purple as those are the most requested by schools, but I sure hope that they do some patterns and designs again!
I can’t believe school starts in less than a month here. I haven’t decided if I’ll let the 2nd grader take this, or if I’m keeping it for myself! Don’t forget I have two different back to school printables you can grab for the first day of school, too. A super fun questionnaire for the kids to fill out every year, and a sign for the first day of [blank] grade, K-5th!
The Trapper Keeper Facebook page will be hosting a promotion for fans from July 7 – September 12. Prizes will be given away three times a week and will include fully-loaded Trapper Keepers and all of your ‘80s favorites (movies, music, games, gift cards and more!).

Trapper Keeper would like to give one lucky reader a fully loaded Trapper Keeper system, including: Binder, 1-subject notebook, 2-pocket folder, Dividers and Student planner.
I was provided two Trapper Keeper systems, one for review and one for a giveaway to my readers, by Mead. All opinions are my own.
Giveaway has ended. Congrats to the Rafflecopter winner, Candy!
