Only a Boomer can recognize all these shapes

What are these silhouettes!?

No, this is not an ink-blot personality test. These shapes are very specific things. You probably had to live through the 1960s and 1970s to recognize them all.

They range from edible items to cartoon characters to toys to gadgets. Take your best guess!

  1. What is this?
  2. What was this used for in a school?
  3. What kind of food came in this container?
  4. Where would you find this quirky character?
  5. Which shampoo came in this bottle?
  6. Who manufactured this gadget?
  7. Who are these two?
  8. What was this little fellow helping sell?
  9. What is this?
  10. What toys is being played with here?
  11. What is this toy doing?
  12. Where would you find this contraption?
  13. What was the flavor of this snack?
  14. What is this?
  15. Finally, what was this funky footwear called?

Only a Boomer can recognize all these shapes

12/15 for this millennial. One I really actually knew while the other two were more surprising…particularly the helmet sundae thing? xD

13/15 I missed the shoe question (guessed Birkenstocks) and the camera (I thought it was a Nikon). I still have a couple of those baseball helmets from Baskin-Robbins.
I missed that last one too and I said the same thing.

Well _I'm_ a Boomer, but I missed Alkie (confused him with Big Boy) and Earth Shoe (I _guessed_ Birkenstocks). That last one really shouldn't have been in this list.

Everything on this list could be recognized as part of a Generation X childhood. You have to go farther back for a true Boomer quiz.

14 of 15 and I am Gen X (I remember somethings from my grandpas house). I had to guess on the shoe and I guessed wrong. I had NO idea so I tried the clogs.

This really is a GenX test. Earth Shoes were just a a blip, so, no shame there.
