Oh the memories! I had Midge in first grade, took her to school and someone stole her! I was heartbroken. I had Chatty Cathy with black hair, the baby liddle kiddle, and Penny Brite. I also had the etch a sketch, cootie game, Mr. Potato Head and Silly putty. No idea where any of those things are now, probably the dump! Boohoo!
Oh I feel like I've just stepped back in time! You and I must be about the same age. I had a Chatty Cathy and loved her totally. Captain Kangaroo! I loved him. :) Thanks for the memories.
Oh, Susieness! All the memories are just pouring in! I had most of these things! I loved my Barbie Dream House! Loved the Monkees! The Archies!! Colorforms! Oh, Yes, I'm comin' over!Be a sweetie,Shelia;)
OH MY GOSH! Did this bring back memories!!! I had that same Colorforms set! Yikes. And my Barbie was one of the originals, blonde ponytail and black & white stiped bathing suit.I remember Mystery Date, too -- so funny! AND I am even old enough to remember when Mr Potato Head required you to go and beg a real POTATO from your Mom!I never had a Chatty Cathy, though -- I think my mom thought I was chatty enough, but Arlene who lived next door had one.Ah ... memories. This was GREAT!Cass
What magical fun!Brenda
OMG, how I love this post! I have a blond barbie with that same striped bathing suit in one of my closets here. And oh, how much I loved the Monkees in junior HS. I am really dating myself here. I had most of those items in your post, except the Penny Brite which I wanted so much. I've never gotten over that.
What memories! I had an original Barbie and the Barbie with wigs, Ken, Chatty Cathy and my brother had GI Joe.Capatain Kangaroo was my favorite show. Remember Mr Green Jeans?We had real toys back then, not cell phones, Ipods, Wiis or DSi. That was when kids actually played outside....in the olden days!
I feel like I relived my childhood in that post! I didn't have all those groovy toys, but they sure brought back memories. I Did have that 16 magazine! I bought every issue I believe. I had a serious crush on Barry Cowsill. Loved the Monkees too though. Thanks for the memories. Have a great day! Twyla
We are so of the same generation! I had Chatty Baby and I can still remember most of her sayings and the inflection she used. My sister's got a defect in the voicebox and we used to scare ourselves at night in bed when we made her talk/growl. Had Mystery Date, was in 16 Magazine once, oh, those were the days!
How fun! I remember Mystery Date! And Etch-a-sketch...I could draw a pretty good house with a chimney on that!Thanks for the trip down memory lane.Hugs,Penny
What a fun walk down memory lane! Enjoy your new toys Sue! lol
You were so lucky! Barby wasn't around when I was a little girl. You certainly were blessed, big time!
I had NO idea that Barbie had wigs!!! No way!!!
Oh! Great memories -- but where is the Barbie Doll board game? I used to play that with my dad (Ken -- really!) all the time!
We had a Etch a Sketch at home, I read 16 Magazine religiously, and played Gidget with my friends. That was just yesterday, wasn't it?
OMG!Memories!!I had that very same Barbie condo... before condo's were even cool.
I love this vintage post. I remember some of the items, but not most of them. I would definitely say that I prefer The Monkees for two reasons: 1) I never heard of the other group and 2) I did love The Monkees. Thanks for the fun memories.
This was too funny...I used to love to play with Colorforms and I was in the post office today and actually saw a man in a "RatFink"tee shirt....now how random is that...Have a great weekend!
How funny - I had so many of those toys! What memories. I had a Tiny Tears too which would wet in her diaper when you fed her water from her bottle. (She also leaked out the joints in her arms and legs!) Have a lovely weekend!
Hi there! Your sunset and black and white winter photos are spectacular! Never concern yourself with what others may say in a negative way .... they really don't matter in the big scheme of things.
Well it's no wonder I didn't get anything I wanted for Christmas, you got it all! hehe Oh boy, those toys and games sure brought back a lot of memories. You know that Give a Show Projector? They had the exact same one at the auction last Sunday and it went for only $5!! I could have kicked myself for not buying it, I know I could have sold it for much more on eBay. I love it that you can still buy an Etch a Sketch today, I had one and my boys had one...I'll have to buy one for Lily when she's old enough:-) xoxo
What a fun walk down memory lane!I remember MOST of those toys!!!!
