How to Give Your Kids An 80s Style Canadian Summer

Let's Make This Summer as Good as the Ones of Our Youth

Summers are fun no matter your age or time period you live in. (Except maybe The Middle Ages or Ye Olden Biblical Times. Things looked pretty shitty all-around back then.) But there was just something extra special about summertime in the 80s that made it feel different, in a good way. Or is that just my 26 residual 80s sunburns talking?  

Here's to the past, and a look at some of the things we could use today (most are still around) to bring back the era of sweet, sweet summertime fun. 



Jeni Marinucci is YMC's Creative Director. She has a guilty conscience, a love for humour, and a questionable home-haircut. After her children were old enough to make their own sandwiches, she returned to University to complete her B.A. in English Literature—a designation which has provided her with an extensive library and crushing student loans. When no teaching college wanted her, she had to choose between taking orders through a drive-thru window or from an editor. She chose the latter.
