products for youth that are no longer cool
Jordache is really interesting, peagood this is exactly the sort of thing I’m looking for. What with 80s/90s ridiculousness totally on trend right now, I could potentially build a case to resurrect Jordache. Gear

What about waterbeds? I don’t know whether it was mainly the young demographic that was into them, but it seems like all the 18 25 year olds I knew in the 80s had one.

Tamagatchis? (sp?) Or were those just younger kids? What about JNCO jeans? Hemp necklaces?

Swatch and Tretorns are rebranding I’ve seen the former on style blogs recently and the latter has a swish new flagship in SoHo, NYC. Doc Martens, too.
Polaroid definitely had a popular worldwide youth oriented run from the late 1960s through early 1990s with a series of cameras: Swinger, Colorpack, OneStep mnhdfjgh.
