I loved the vintage Holly Hobbie rag dolls. My daughters had them too, so cute!

I was the nerd who asked for a world globe for Christmas. My mother still rags on me for that...

I didn't have any of these cool toys you listed. DH did have Star Wars stuff. He now hates that he sold it all in a yard sale when he was a kid to have spending money!

Lynn68 has shown a merry dispositionLynn68 has shown a merry disposition
In the '70s, I had Lite Brite, The Sunshine Family and their treehouse (they were smaller than average barbie like dolls that came with mom, dad, baby and a treehouse), I had Ballerina Barbie, The Six Million Dollar Man soll, a Cher doll with hair down to the backs of her knees, Spiro graph, Scooby Doo Mystery Machine, Road runner, Bugs bunny and Coyote stuffed animals with posable limbs which stood nearly as tall as I was, Raggedy Ann & Andy, Miss Beasley doll from the tv show Family Affair, a Holly Hobby stuffed doll, a slinky, and an anatomically correct baby Joey doll from the tv show All in the Family. Joey was Gloria's and meathead's son in the later years. I also had a lot of the popular "Golden" books. Wow, I can't believe I can remember that far back!!

I remember and played with only a small handful of these, as I was only allowed very few things.
Mastermind, Magna Doodle, Slime, Raw Power (My Cousins had this) and Legos.
Most I never personally had.
The School where I went to, (Conservative Church School), had most of these.
