Remember when?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I was watching the VH1 show about toys and decided to take a trip down memory lane and find some of my favorite toys...

Anyone else play with these as a kid? http://www.boscovs.com/StoreFrontWeb...0&type=Product
It's all the fun of having kittens without that whole pet overpopulation thing!

Let's see some of your favorite old toys!

My favorite toy as a kid was the Creepy Crawler machine. To this day, I occasionally search stores trying to find one.

I just loved Fashion Plates. Remember those? A few years ago I found a set of Barbie fashion tiles that were similar, so I scooped them up for my niece she just loves them...especially when she can talk my husband into playing with them with her. (He's a sucker for a cute smile!)

Don't feel bad...I still play with them. (Usually with my niece.)

I was a Barbie fanatic! It was all I could do the other day while in Kmart not to buy one!

I never much got into Barbies...maybe I missed out on that gene?

I was into Littlest Pet Shop, Pound Puppies, Beanie Babies...are we noticing a trend?

When my ex and I were together, I bought his daughter all sorts of Barbies- clothes and accessories too! unfortunately she didn't get the Barbie gene either
I also loved Strawberry Shortcake- I think it was dolls of any kind that I liked and I do remember Pound Puppies!!

Another Barbie fanatic here. I morphed into a Barbie Collector for a few years, when I could afford it. There are some AMAZING collector/limited edition/collector's edition Barbies out there.

And yes, Tari - I had Fashion Plates too! I loved them!! I always wanted to be a fashion designer when I was little.

Well, Barbie was ok, except for my cousin actually had Barbie, Skipper, etc. and I had the cheap version - Tammy.

Rockem Sockem Robots were great (wish I could find them now), and I loved Fun Flowers and Spirograph.

OMG, I did too. I used to take them into the bathrub with me, so they're probably all ruined.

But man, I wish I still had my Kitty Surprise...such a hilarious little toy.

I'd never seen a KittySuprise, but I had so many stuffed kitties, I'm sure I would have loved it.

Mine had a litter of 4! Which of course started a fight (at the family birthday party, no less) because my sister's Kitty Surprise (our bdays are 2 weeks apart) only had a litter of 2. And hers were both boys.

I should buy one for my neice. She's only 1, but I could save it. Well, maybe not. I'd be too tempted to open it.

If you find one let me know! I loved that machine as a kid, one of my friends would make stuff for me.

I loved TMNT!!! I had everyone except for 2 Leonardo toys and there was one other I was missing. I had a bike, pizza thorwing machine (it would roll around on the ground and spit plastic pizzas! so much fun for tormenting my little sister), a sewer, etc. You name it for TMNT and I had it. Nieghborhood boys loved to come over my house to play!

My little sister was big into barbie. Someone got me a Stacie doll and I took one look at and threw it in the trash after they left! Opps.

Oh I always wanted a Kitty Surprise! Soooo bad! Mom was single when I was at that age, so it just wasn't something she could afford at the time. I did have some Littlest Pet Shop things and Polly Pockets. One is a castle with a gazebo and horse drawn carraige...I still love that thing!

My Mr. Ed the Talking Horse hand puppet was my favorite toy... he really talked! I wish I still had him!

Good news! They still make Kitty Surprise, as of last year! You should totally buy one!

I loved paper dolls!! Barbie dolls were my passion, too. To have them now, in good shape...I would have a fortune. I often look online at what the old ones are going for (and wanna cry) and can remember having alot of them.
I had a cabbage patch baby...loved coloring books and crayons...anybody remember the PogoBall? It looked liked Saturn, but was a bouncy ball with a platform to stand on.
Also, Shampoodle. Playdough spaghetti factory.

I grew up in the country so I didn't have a lot of toys that weren't alive. Toads, frogs, turtles, snakes, dogs, cats, chickens, ducks, salamanders....etc...those were all my toys! But, going younger, I do remember Weebles, Play-doh barber shop where you could grow and cut their hair, Cabbage Patch Kids, mine was named Paige and I still have her actually!

My Cabbage Patch kid was named Abigail Allison, but at 2 and half years old, I decided that I'd rather have a CP Kid named "Pancake". And to this day, Pancake still lives at my parents' house.

I'm sure I have renamed stuff too! I just remembered that one of my favorite past times was making what I called Dandelion stew for all our rabbits. I'd put a bunch of weeds in a big pot with water and pretend to cook it, then dish it up to all the rabbits!

I used to "cook" grass and stuff in our birdbath. I wish I still had the imagination I had when I was a kid!!

OH MY GOSH!!! - I loved this! It was definitely without a doubt my all time favorite! I'm not a "tom-boy" at all, I played with barbies like the rest of the girls, but I always loved this. I use to make the most disgusting creatures I could imagine and give them to my friend (who was very much a "girly girl".... )
