The Trapper Keeper, known in the 1980’s, known for its versatility, capacity and design, made its debut in 1979.  Its primary functions were to keep loose leaf note paper handy, make folders easily accessible and provide a clipboard function to anchor the design.  The added bonus was the hardback, wrap around design, complete with a Velcro adhesive and dynamic plastic cover.  Oh the covers!   Covers were adorned with everything from kittens on trees, action shots from South American soccer (futbol) games, cartoon Transformers and the classic unicorn centered in front of an exploding purple glitter background.  The Trapper Keeper – the height of technological advancement of our youth; the iPad of the 1980’s.
