    I’ve got ’em!!! I never had Legos as a kid – my friends all did, but I didn’t. Now Josh is swimming in them, and we’re having a BLAST!!!

    But hmmm…. the question as it’s asked? The Trampoline. We had a rectangular trampoline with a woven bed – not those round things that they have today with the rubber beds. This was a professional tramp. It was in my parent’s back yard, and every single summer, my friends and I worked it almost daily. We even held campouts on it. It was an absolute blast. I’d love to have it for Josh. Ok, and for me. I had wicked legs when I was younger, thanks to all that jumping!

    I would love to have all my dolls. I had a ton of them. I had a Baby Boo doll that cried when you took out her pacifier. One night the batteries corroded and leaked into her diaper and I swore that doll was alive.

    I also would love to have the old labyrinth game we had. That thing was a lot of fun. Darryl and I played it all the time.

    I liked my baby dolls, too. I was pretty serious about taking care of them. But, I don’t really wish I still had them. One of my favorite dolls at one point was Baby Tender Love. It broke at some point and that was a huge bummer. While I was waiting for my dad to fix it, I saw it in a horror movie with some evil goop coming out of its eyes. Then I didn’t want it anymore. But, I would like to see that doll again someday (intact) because it was so special to me at one time.

    I had a Fisher-Price dollhouse that I loved, and when pieces got lost, I never really accepted that they were gone. I think that if I were to come across that dollhouse intact someday, it would be a big thrill. Not so I could play with it, but because of the nostalgia.

    I also really loved art stuff. I had this particular set of colored markers that always inspired me to get creative.

    I still have some of my favorite childhood gifts. The 3/4 size violin I got when I was 9, the “anything book” from when I was about 10, and maybe a few other things.

    Ah, things. I don’t know how healthy it is to keep such attachments. For my kids, I hope they don’t go through life missing “stuff,” but at the same time, I hope they remember their special Doll and Bear. I know I will. (I don’t think I had a “lovey” when I was little.)

      I still have my ‘special doll’… her name is Amy. She used to live in my bed, when i was little, but now she lives on top of my dresser, all dolled up in the dress that my mom made her for my wedding.

    I had a few dolls, which were my children. I was 2 years old, when I became a mom, seriously. I toke it really serious. I Had my own crib, and my “children” slept in it, and I gave them breakfast, etc. Later at 4 years of age, I went to kindergarten and waved my dolls goodbye and when I came home, I greeted them as if I have been away for a long time. My mom never thought it was odd or I was going too far in this. I grew over it 🙂 and then the real kids came lol.

    I wish I would have held on to my Care-bears, and popples. My rainbow Brite…and my Wuzzle books. I would read them over and over, and imagine living in their land. I loved those books, and can only find them online now.

    Wish we could find our “missing” legos… We recently found some of my Ertl Farm toys. Now Hunter plays with those. Still missing a whole bunch though. Still have all of our Breyer horses when I was younger.

    I wish that I still had the great imagination that I had while growing up. I am still quite imaginative, but no where near what I was.

    My mom was really good about keeping our toys, but there was something I wanted that she didn’t keep and now for the life of me I can’t remember what it was!

    I’m not sure I would want this doll back or not but, the doll with the long hair that you could pull and she would have hair down the middle of her back. You could wind a knob on her back and she would have short hair.
