19 definite signs of growing up in Switzerland

You hated it when the real life tooth fairy would visit. The school dentist always brought her oversized toothbrush and yucky pills!

You’d spend your pocket money on Supertrumpf Quartett cards and knew the horse-powers of every car by heart.

You begged your parents to buy Sugus candy or Zweifel chips to expand your pin collection.

Before celebrity selfies, your bragging rights were a collection of autographs.

During high school, you’d meet your friends at the black&white photo booth!

Of course, you always carried a Swisscom calling card in your wallet.
