Throw Back Thursday: Jurassic Park

“During a preview tour, a theme park suffers a major power breakdown that allows it’s dinosaur exhibit to run amok.” says IMDb on their Jurassic Park page.

This movie was just plain bada**, excuse the language, but it’s the truth. This was my favourite movie when I was a child and my favourite part was when the guy gets eaten off the toilet by a dinosaur.

Just picture a four year old with long, curly hair watching a man get eaten by a dinosaur, then yelling, “Again! Again!” My mum would rewind the VHS, yes VHS, then watch it all over again with a huge smile on my face.

Right now there’s three movies, Jurassic Park (1993), The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), and Jurassic Park III (2001). There’s a fourth one coming out this June 2015 – Jurassic World. I’m pumped and everyone who grew up with these movies is pumped. Now I’m not going to tell you about these movies because I want you to go watch them for yourselves! Once you guys have, let me know in the comments what you thought!

Trust me on this one, these movies are awesome!

Who doesn’t love dinosaurs?

Throw Back Thursday: Little Tikes Car

Remember the Flintstones and how they drove their “cars”? That’s what I use to call my Little Tikes car. Now i know these are still around with different colours and styles but my old style car is the best one.

My Little Tikes car had an orange body, yellow roof, black front bars, black wheels and tires and not to forget the fake white gas cap. You had to use your feet to move the car, it was the hardest thing when I was young. I was always a really short kid, reaching the ground wasn’t a common thing in my life which would make my feet get stuck under the car! The struggle was real back in the day.

The downside to this car was you could never go fast! You could only move as fast as your legs could move but even then, there wasn’t much leg room.

In my family, we will forever remember this car because it has a family story.

When I was about 4-5 I was sitting on the roof of the Little Tikes car, I was watching TV, I have no idea why my parents let me up there but it wasn’t a worry to them. In the house that I grew up in there was a long hallway that connected the bedrooms to the living room/kitchen/dining room. That day my sister was mad at me, so she came running down the hallway and pushed me off the car. I landed on my shoulder and broke my collarbone. I ended up having to wear a sling for a couple of weeks. My mum now has a Christmas ornament of the car!

All in all this little car was a pretty awesome toy and every kid loved it!
