Hi!   We hope you and your family are safe and that you are taking all necessary precautions during the COVID-19 crisis.

You say you're a Baby Boomer?  Okay, how many of these classics from the '50s & '60s do you remember? We've got 2722 entries so far, and are adding more as they come to mind.  If any of the items here evoke memorable moments in your life, please log in and tell us about them! And if you think of items to add to this admittedly U.S.-centric collection (especially if you have photos), please contact us.

Try our Baby Boomer Trivia Quiz!

The quiz has hundreds of unique questions, with a mix of fill-in-the-blank, multiple-choice & even drag-n-drop. The multiple-choice questions have some very funny choices (if we do say so ourselves). You can try the easiest/hardest questions first if you like, and we keep track of the questions each logged-in user has seen, so you can play over & over and never get the same question twice.  Have fun!
