23 Marvelous Things We Longed For as Kids, and Now We Can Get Them

Do you remember dreaming about what you’d do when you grew up? You’d eat pounds of sweets and bubble gum all the time, have all the toys, no prohibitions, and complete freedom. But only very few people can enjoy these simple things when they are adults. This article is about such people.

Bright Side has collected photos from the lives of adult people who, fortunately, still live like children.
