    Lets see.. My cabbage patch kids, my rainbow brite and horse, then when i got older my nintendo..LOL My mom said I sold my nintendo to get a newer system. I don’t recall that. She still has my dolls. Some have been given to my kids but my most cherished ones are still put up until they can take care of them.

  2. I still have my Raggedy Ann doll and my stuffed tiger (named “Tiger”). They were a big part of my “nightlife” as a kid, those couple of hours I would play in bed before I was able to fall asleep. We had more good conversations!

    My other favorite toys were Legos. I have none of the ones I had as a kid, but over the years I have bought lots and lots “for my kids.” 😉

    The Wuzzles!! I love them and now that I have the internet I was able to find them and my niece can watch it too. I was 5, I can remember watching that cartoon Saturday mornings. I had every one of them, my bed was full of them. I haven’t found anyone else who remembers these little creatures but they were so cool. I don’t have them anymore because I moved around so much, but I wish I would have hung on to them.

    I had a doll called Baby Tender Love. I don’t have her any more.

    My favorite was a doll called “Baby Boo.” She had a pacifier and if you took it out of her mouth, she’d cry. How obnoxious would that be to me now?!?! I also loved my bike. It was our mode of transportation and we rode our bikes all over the place and would think nothing of riding miles to get somewhere.

    My brother and I also played a lot of games and did a lot of puzzles. We loved Monopoly and we loved playing cards. We played cards all the time with our grandparents. I can still hear my grandma giggle when she’d “set” grandpa and he’d pretend to look mad.

    The amount of toys there are now, weren’t around when I was growing up.

    I liked cabbage patch dolls too. I also really loved lego’s. I loved to build cities and all kinds of things and now my little boy loves them too and we sit and build things for hours.

    My typewriter. Come to think, I had more than one. My grandma used to let me play with the one in her office. That doesn’t count because it wasn’t mine. I got a turquoise and white kid typewriter for Christmas one year. Later, I got this behemoth of an old-fashioned heavy metal one. I don’t have any of these typewriters now. Of course, the computer has replaced them.

    Do books count as toys? If so, they were also my favorites.

    Mine would be the people from Fisher Price. They didn’t have legs or arms, just round bodies with heads. Along the line of the weebles. We also had blocks that we built the People’s house out of.

    If books can be considered toys, then books would be my answer. I always had my nose in a book as a kid. I also loved the Fisher Price barn and my Bugs Bunny doll. I was convinced Bugs Bunny came to life whenever I left my room.

    I had a something that would bring back every ball or stick I threw. I could even throw it in the water and it would go in after it like that’s what it was made for. It would welcome me home from school, vacations or even a short trip to the store, it was a kissing machine. It was the best toy, it always seemed to make me feel like I was only one around, like it was made for me. Do I still have it? Kinda of. Her name was Shamus. First retriever I ever had. I remember the day we got her and the day we put her down. No boy should ever be with out a lab. I know mine never will be. He doesn’t think of her as a toy now but in 20 years ask him the question I was just asked and I know the answer you’ll get. That dog loves her boy.

  12. Joy says:

    I knew from you very first sentance that you were talking about Shamus 🙂 She was a good one.

    I wasn’t given “toys” as a child. All were learning activities. Microscope, chemistry set, classic books, etc. My favorites were the books.

    I was however given an Easy Bake oven from an Aunt who had no children. I think that made me love to bake!

    I don’t have anything from my childhood unfortunately except for a bunch of antique classic books left to me by my grandmother.
