The Weekly Links: Zelda Monopoly, Wonder Years Oral History, Spandau Ballet Comeback

Another week has passed full of '80s pop culture goodness and The Weekly Links are here to present them all to you! Hopefully you noticed I started posting the #80sAlbumOfTheDay again on Facebook and Twitter. No structure or order to what I pick, just a random '80s album to get you through the day. I also learned a few things this week:


I stumbled onto a fun video this week from Mental Floss that gives us some fun facts about toys. While not all of these were created in the 80s, most were available during the decade and some still used to this day. The video makes me wish we had a toy section in our school history books!!
