About This Quiz

The Baby Boomers just knew how to have fun. From Super Balls to Pogo sticks to Barrel of Monkeys, the world was a playground. As they got older, TV dinners arrived as well as transistor radios and Polaroid cameras to make life more convenient. And the style of the decade was bell bottoms. Elvis as well as Sonny and Cher certainly deserve some of the credit for the popularity that bell bottoms enjoyed in the 1960s and 1970s. Take the quiz right now and recall it all.
