Wow, this really brings back memories. I had most of those toys that were mentioned. I loved my easybake oven, snow cone maker, lots of barbies, raggedy Ann (which I still have) and Andy, colorforms and all the board games that were mentioned. I had a doll that I loved called baby magic that came with this magnetic wand so you could open and close her eyes and make her tears come down. I was a tomboy, so I got racing car sets with all the curving tracks, and electric trains. I still have trains, but not the set a had when I was a child. I had clackers too, several hula hoops with the beads inside and that thing that went around the ankle that we called a footsie. There is probably a lot more stuff, but I can't think of anything else right now.
these clackers were really succesfull? I find them very annoying somehow....but then...that´s normal for me, since I never liked playing things where I didnt run around like crazy...only when I bought my game boy I slowed down a bit....for 20minutes
Um....I remember having these toys but not all at once
Jem and The Holograms Dolls/stage
Barbie's, Peaches and Cream, Crystal Barbie, Day to Night Barbie
Al a Cart Kitchen (I think its spelt right)
ET soft toy
Roland Rat soft toy
A CD Walkman
Therer's probably hundreds more but I will have to have a search on the net!!
Oh my, great thread to bring back memories.
I think I had the chicken pox the Christmas that I got my Chrissy doll. The next year I got, what I believe was her cousin. Her name was Velvet. She was a blonde rather than a red head. I loved Chrissy and Velvet.
We got lots of games. Life-Clue-Operation-Monopoly...all the standard family games that I now have here for my family.
We had an video game system.....the name will come to me eventually. (We had to attach the special screen to the tv set to play the different games. Video games have changed considerably since those days.)
I had record players and TONS of 45's and LP's. My parents belonged to Columbia House and their record collection was quite extensive and I always got to get any new Partridge Family, Jackson 5, The Osmonds, Bobby Sherman etc album I wanted.
I had doll houses, and dishes, and so much stuff that I wish I still had today! LOL
