The FILA x Rugrats Collection Is A ’90s Kid Dream

Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

’90s kids may be all “growed up” now, but you can still be a kid at heart. The FILA x Rugrats Collection arrived at Champs Sports and it’ll give you all the feels. You may be missing your childhood days of Saturday morning cartoons and bowls of cereal, which you’ve traded in for brunch and bottomless mimosas. But you can relive the glory days of your youth through your footwear.

 

The Rugrats taught us that you’re never too old to be an adventurous baby. And now you can bring that adventurous spirit back into your adult lives one FILA x Rugrats collection piece at a time. It is available exclusively at Champs Sports stores in the United States, Canada, and online.

 

Vice president of marketing at Champs Sport, Jason Brown, said in a press release, “Champs Sports and our partners at FILA and Nickelodeon are excited to bring these well-known characters to life for a new generation, ahead of their big-screen premiere.” Oh yeah, you read that right: Rugrats is returning in 2020!
