So—wish I was still 40 but… Alas Im not—and wow 6 years seems to really make a difference in what was popular while growing up- ha
Looking for ideas to add to a 40th bday cake- stuff that was popular growing up- from young—teens—kind of like a blast from the past cakes—
So far I have—aqua net hairspray, uno, nameplates, ankle bracelets, mtv, black band bracelets, slouch socks—rubix cube (??) magic 8 ball—
Do these ring true? Can anyone add anything?

Not sure about the Magic 8 Ball but you hit everything else on the head.  Lots of neon!!!!

You can look up a lot of things for what every year you would like.   You can look up toys, music, movies fashion trends, all kinds of stuff.
