plastic Goody barrettes

I didn’t know they still made these! So when I spotted one package left at Target, I scooped it up. Not much seems to have changed since I wore these barrettes as a kid. And they work well in both my girls’ hair.

My favorite is the one with the lovebirds. Or maybe the cat playing the stand-up bass.

It’s the little things, right?

  1. those WERE awesome. I love the poodles. I’m gonna have to find some for the baby.

  2. love!

  3. I love these Barrettes! Isabella actually is wearing the same ones that I wore! My mom saved them from when I was little and gave them to me when Isabella was born! I even have the “Days of the Week” barrettes πŸ™‚

  4. I totally had those! I tend to like the butterfly or the one that looks like a rectangle corn-on-the-cob.

  5. ZOMG, I had these growing up – what with my whispy fine blond locks. They matched mmu outfits & i never wanted them to face upside down. Ahhh memories… πŸ™‚

  6. I remember these!!! And my long lost deep dark secret…I loved to chew on these. And my hair.

  7. I used to have those same ones! I’ll have to take a look for them too when D ever gets enough hair to hold one. πŸ™‚

  8. I’m so glad you posted about those barrettes at Target. They totally bring me back to my childhood! And, you’re right, they keep the hair of my baby girls face so much better than anything else I have tried!

  9. Where can we buy these?? Has anyone seen any recently?? Thanks!!

    • I found them at Target, but I think it was a fluke. Haven’t seen them anywhere since then!

  10. Thanks for responding! I just bought a 6-pack on an Etsy site πŸ™‚

    • How cool! I didn’t even think to look on Etsy. Thanks for the tip!

  11. Megan, I can’t find them, where did you find them on Etsy? I’m desperate they are the only ones that my daughter can’t pull out of her hair. πŸ™‚

  12. I am disappointed. I have search far and near for these barrettes and can’t seem to find them anywhere. I have even looked on Goody’s website, but don’t seem to make them anymore. I have a daughter now, and the barrettes that I see nowadays just aren’t the best, and frankly downright ugly! I want my daughter to wear the barrettes that my mom had me wearing as a child. Any suggestions Ladies?

    • I wish I could help you out! I must have gotten lucky finding these. Maybe try ebay? Good luck!
