Let's Go Back A Bit....

I love to reminisce.
I loved the very late 70's and 80's.
Simply loved that time.
I can vividly remember some of my favorite toys.
Some were very popular.
Others were rare......
Thinking about those times and seeing pictures of these toys makes me feel so warm and fuzzy. Raggedy Ann Colorforms.
These rocked.

Oh what you could draw with the spirograph.
Aghhhh.....do you remember these ?

Fashion plates......I could make me some fashions....OH Yea !!

Darci....if you remember this doll you remember she towered high above Barbie.

I always thought she was the big Barbie.

Tree House...pop it on the top...it pops up to show all the good-living inside.

how cool to live in a tree.

what were your favorite "rare" toys?

Oh my gosh, the spirograph! I LOVED that thing. My grandparents had it at their house...always a reason for it to be better than any toys at your own home. :) They also had this little death trap that I loved. I have seen them around every once in a while now. It was basically peddles that went around, but nothing to hold on to. Like I said, death trap. LOL My kids would love it!

Fashion Plates was one of my FAVES! When in trouble, my parents would make me 'play' outside, because I would spend hours with my Fashion Plates, Paper Dolls and my EasyBake Oven. Love it!
