17 Tumblr posts that will give you flashbacks of your childhood

With all the newfangled technology we have these days, it's easy to forget how different things were just a decade or two ago. Cell phones were still luxuries, DVDs seemed ridiculously advanced, and WiFi was pretty much magic.

Now, however, internet access is pretty much treated like a human right, nobody bothers buying hard copies of films, and if you use anything other than the latest Apple or Android phone, you're considered a Luddite. For the most part, that's fine... but don't you sometimes wish you could go back to a simpler time?

Here's 17 Tumblr posts that'll make you feel nostalgic about those glorious days...
