Hi- I'm having an 80's themed birthday party and I wanted to make cookie favors but I can't come up with any fun idea. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance for your help!

I think the Rubik's Cube and Cassette tape idea is great!

You could also do Pac Man, joysticks, some of the School House Rock stuff (how a bill becomes a law, etc.), pink houses (John Cougar), Ray Ban sunglasses, Michael Jackson's glove, etc.

Michael Jackson's glove......now that brings back memories lol That was the only birthday cake I remember as a kid......my mom made a cake in a pyrex lasagna pan (left it in there too lol) and frosted it pink, (grocery store icing.mmm...lol) and traced her own hand and then filled it in with silver dragees!! I think I ate the entire glove myself (so much for those things being poisonous!! Oh wait...maybe that's what's wrong with me???? hahaha)

I love the rubiks cube idea! I loved my Vans in the 80's oh and my Top Siders! Oh Mtv started then! Could you do some version of the tv on a cookie with an antenna on top? Oh I just went back in time.. that's when Mtv was the best!! Great, now I want to watch Pretty in Pink! icon_lol.gif

Since you're not selling them, you could make 80's cartoon character cookies. icon_biggrin.gif Fraggle Rock, Heman, She-ra (sp?), Smurfs, Popples, Rainbow Brite, Strawberry Shortcake, ThunderCats, Snorks, etc. icon_smile.gif Don't forget the flourescent colored shoe strings on the high tops and roller skates icon_wink.gif OH!! I almost forgot Jem! icon_surprised.gif

As for the parachute pants, I had some too... lol. They were black/white checkered.

Cassette or record. Vinyl. Ya' know, those big black round things? icon_biggrin.gif
Pee chees.
Pop rocks were new then, even if they are still around. Maybe used them on top of the cookies?

I'm not sure of the age range of the attendees for your party but I grew up in the 80's and the cartoons were the best! The Smurfs, Fraggle Rock, JEM, Thundercats, He-man, etc. The 80's were the best! LOL
