A daily look back at the toys, games, and objects that captured our attention as children and continue to fascinate us today.

My Side of the Laundry Room

My Side of the Laundry Room is a YouTube channel that highlights memorable – and a few best-left-forgotten – comics, movies, television shows, games, and toys from the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s.

Host Rob waxes nostalgic about his childhood influences as viewers are treated to a look at some of the most unusual, fascinating, and comedic content produced from the ’70s through ’90s. Self-identified geeks will appreciate the host’s deep knowledge of featured topics, delivered with enthusiasm and a dash of sarcasm. Example topics of discussion are: favourite ’90s cartoons, best ’80s cartoon ninjas, animals of the G.I. Joe franchise, fearless females in fiction, and the toys he wishes he had as children.

Thanks to consistently released content, the channel has built a loyal following. The videos lend themselves well to background listening, but nostalgia fans will want to watch for glimpses of all that made the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s the best decades in which to grow up.
