Childhood for us was an absolute blast. We often laugh about being rather sheltered growing up and how we were the Queens of innocence. Our parents encouraged our imagination and all we needed was our Superman capes and a back garden to be happy. Naturally, we grew up with our crushes and showing a little interest in boys, but in all honestly, we were much more interested in who out of the four of us got to play with Thunderbird 2. That's just how we rolled. Having recently watched one of our die hard favourite movies from when we were younger, we thought we would share with you our childhood movie must watches, that made a huge impact on our lives. :)
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.
What to say, what to say?? The Power Rangers ROCKED!! I was the yellow ranger, Lucy was the pink ranger and our brother started off as Jason the red ranger until Tommy, the green ranger, came along and was just that bit cooler. Our little sister was a bit too young to join in and fully understand our love for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers at this point, but she did on occasion sit and watch it with us. We were fanatical. When this movie came out, we were actually in New York and begged our parents to take us to see it. We were beyond excited! Similar to The 3 Ninja's, the rangers had us play fighting, running around our back garden, wishing we could back flip and fight off bad guys. It was just fun, you had your classic good guys and your dastardly bad guys, as well as creepy and silly characters! It's changed a lot over the years but we still say our Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, circa 1995, were the best! :)
Sabrina The Teenage Witch.
To Grandmothers house we go, Double Trouble, Boil and Bubble and It takes two!
Of course we have Mary Kate and Ashley movies in this list! We watched absolutely everything they did. Every straight to TV movie, every TV show, we loved them all. However, three of our favourites, and the ones we watched the most, are the ones stated above. We would often watch these movies and decide who was who out of the both of us, like which roles we would play. We also liked to act out the scene where they bump into each other in the woods in 'It takes two." We learnt the lines word for word and even imitated the accents they did in the movie! Oh and a BIG thing from said movie is when Mary Kate's character is asked to play the piano and gives a little speech. She say's a line about her soon to be step mum whom she "Absolutely adores!!" Even at 28, there are times when we can't say the word 'Absolutely' without saying it the same way she does! Hands up if you do this too!!! Mary Kate and Ashley were huge influences on us growing up and we still have tons of admiration for them both. We are also quite proud of the fact that we can always, no matter what, tell them apart. They don't actually look that alike but it irks us when magazines get them wrong!
So that's it for our list of must see childhood classics, there are probably tons more but these just stand out to us the most. We love that back then these kids movies were all about being kids, being silly, adventurous and being outside and using your imagination. They make us smile and feel happy and content with our childhood, we wouldn't have had it any other way! :)
Let us know some of your favourites and any that you think we missed!
Love Lucy and Kelly
