The ever adorable Jessi from Scrappy Jessi is hosting a "Favorite Childhood Toy Party" over at her blog. She has invited everyone to share their fav toys from the past and I have to admit that researching this to find pics was such a blast from the past!
I would be remiss if I didn't include Jack. (maybe that's why I named my son that?) I loved this toy when I was about 4 or 5 years old. The graphics were colorful and bright and I have to admit- it scared me every single time it popped.
The game of Simon. Ahhhhh, what a frustrating game for a girl who had the attention span of a knat....
My sister Melody and I loved Ernie and Bert.
I was always Ernie.
She was always Bert.
My heart still pounds when I see this Avon *perfume pin.
I loved this Avon pin...
Until my friend Debbie came to school with THIS pin...a bunny wearing roller skates...I just about died!
They ingeniously hid perfume in the back of the pins. I can still remember how it smelled. Yes, Avon knew the hold they had on me and produced many more of these oh-so-fabulous pins. I became an addict. And happily so....
"Lil Kiddles." Need I say more ladies? Genius. Small cute dolls nestled inside small cute vessels.
What more could a girl want?
Even though I have previously admitted on this blog that I have no talent in 'doing' hair, I loved my Farrah Fawcett Glamour Center. I could continually botch her hair - and her make-up - and she never said a cross word to me!
Thumbelina. What a sweetie. 'Nuff said?
Ahh, the Lemon Twist. If you didn't have a Lemon Twist you were nobody.
And finally, the ever popular Barbie Camper. I would skootch down real low, peer into that camper and imagine myself camping out with Barbie and her friends. Maybe Ken would stop by for some roasted marshmallows by the fire? One never knew!
Thanks for joining me in a walk down memory lane - hope you enjoyed it! :)
