POG'S - a wonderful endless childhood memory


so for months now i have been telling anyone who would listen about this game that i loved when i was a kid. how cool it was and that i want to bring it back. i remember being that kid that would walk around every with them and be ready to slam you out of your pogs. i had a lot of different slammers and around 300 pogs. most of which i won from others. then one day they were gone. it wasnt talked about anymore and i didnt think about them till recently. all because someone was talking about the best kid game, and of course i thought it was pogs.

fast forward to today, when i went to the store with my dad to get a few things to organize my childrens toys. there they were, hundreds of them. i turned into a ten year old jumping up and down and yelling I FOUND THEM I FOUND THEM. people looked at me like i lost my mind and my father was laughing at me. he remembered the craze it caused when my brother and i were children. so i called my husband as i am in line, saying i am buying ten packs and come friday i am going back for 20 more. he just laughed at me and said ok baby.

how old am i? 26 ... hiow many pogs do i own ... soon hundreds :) my goal is to bring it back into style make it popular. what great clean fun for kids....
