9 Awesomely ’80s Kids Bedrooms

In the 1980s, nothing was more important to kids than character-themed merchandise. Also, BRB, eBaying He-Man and the Masters of the Universe bedsheets.

1. Garfield

What kid didn’t love Garfield? He was the brat we all wished we could be.

Plus, you were sorta conditioned to like him, after all, he did ride in the backseat of the car with you.

2. Smurfs

The Smurfs were one of the few gender neutral cartoons series and toys of the ’80s, which made it highly likely that any little boy or girl would have one of of set of these sheets in there room.

3. Cabbage Patch Kids

Perhaps no toy is more iconic and represents the ’80s better than the Cabbage Patch Kids. Being one of the biggest fads of the time of course meant they came with every kind of tie-in product.

4. Gremlins

It’s pretty cool that these rather dark kids film got the whole kid bedroom tie-in. But, to be honest, I don’t would’ve been able to sleep with that Stripe stuffed animal.

5. Care Bears

While I applauded the fact they tried to make these sheets gender neutral (the top picture being a boys room), Care Bears tended to lean a bit more towards girl toys territory.

6. Return of the Jedi

Nothing was cooler and bigger in the early ’80s than Star Wars. Luckily, they wisely choose against putting the Ewoks on the sheets.

7. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe

The ultimate boys toy line of course had a ton of tie-in merchandise, like these badass sheets and matching sleeping bag (perfect for sleepovers).

8. Mr. T

In the ’80s Mr. T was a merchandise machine, aside from a cartoon, a cereal, and toys, he also had a line of sheets and apparently also a kids bench press.

9. Rainbow Brite

I’m guessing this room was a huge influence on future raver kids.
