#1 Floppy Disks

"My 9-year-old daughter found an old box of these in our basement and was completely mystified. I had to admit I had no idea what we were still holding on to them for -- I don't even have a computer with a disk drive anymore!" -- Sarah C.

#2 Rotary Phone

"I took my son to the eye doctor when he was about 4. The eye chart was in pictures since he couldn't read yet, and there was a picture of an old-fashioned desktop rotary phone, which he confidently called a jacket and moved right on. The handset did look like arms and the phone's body was the jacket body to him. After he said it, I laughed but could totally see it too!" -- Katrina J.

#3 Roll of Film

Remember taking your film to get developed? At a photo developing place?! And putting even blurry photos in an album, because what else were you gonna do ... delete them??

#4 Typewriter

"I inherited my grandmother's old typewriter and had no idea what I was going to do with it -- turns out my 6-year-old son gets a huge kick out of using it! He can't believe that was once the only option, though." -- Pat S.

#5 8-Track Cartridges

Sure, we're going way back here, but admit it: YOU HAD THESE.

#6 Car Window Crank

"A few years ago, my family was all together in the truck. My husband pulled up next to a friend and motioned for them to roll down the window. The girls had no idea why he was moving his hand in a circle. I tried to explain it, but they said 'you just push the down button.'" -- Wendy K.

#7 VHS Tapes

"My son found a box of VHS tapes. I explained they went in a VCR and you could watch movies, much like a DVD. He said, 'Look, these go in A-v-c-r-a' (all the letters spelled out). Years later we still call it that." -- Jennifer D.

#8 Beeper/Pager

The pre-cellphone way of tracking down your high school boyfriend (Why hasn't he called back yet?!).

#9 Walkman

"My class a few years ago had no idea what a 'Walkman' or 'disc man' was. So believe it or not I still had one packed away up at my parents' house and brought it in to show them. Then I had to explain tapes and fast forward and rewind. Needless to say, they were amazed, and I felt old." -- Candice M.

#10 Yellow Pages

#11 Car Ash Tray

Because not only did everybody used to smoke, everybody used to smoke in their car.

#12 Analog Clock

#13 Audio Cassette Tape

"My daughter was using my CD player that also plays cassette tapes. She came running up to me saying, 'Mom, I'm sorry but this huge piece just broke off.' She was holding a Nirvana cassette. She had no earthly idea what it was, she thought it was a piece of the player." -- Beret N.

#14 Vinyl Record

"Yesterday my boyfriend's son wanted to put an Iron Maiden record into the CD player." -- Sarah K.

#15 Phone Jack

"We went on vacation, the Wi-Fi went out, and I had to explain a phone jack and dial up. And why mommy was very cranky." -- Kim R
