We may not have time machines, but this video offers one way to travel back to the 60s and reflect on some mainstays that are no longer around more than 50 years later.
For those looking to venture back to their childhoods or young adulthoods, this video offers insights into classics from that era like Fizzies, penny candies and Uncle Milton’s Ant Farms.
For those who were not alive during the 60s, videos like these also offer insights into the past. We can see how life looked beyond what we may have already read in our history textbooks.
For example, most of us would balk at the idea of mercury being a primary ingredient in household medicine. But for people in the early 60s, it was not considered a problem.
If you are not coming to these videos to fulfill a sense of nostalgia, they can still raise important questions to ask. What will people 50 years from today find incomprehensible?
In the grand scheme of things, 52 years is not a long time. But videos like this one show us that a lot can change in a short amount of time. Even some of our favorite treats might be gone when we are older.
Whether you want to travel back through time and revisit your childhood memories or you want to muse about the future, this video is one that you will not want to miss.
