What Was Your Favorite Christmas Toy When You Where A Child?

What was your favorite Christmas toy you got as a child? Mine was Dollypops made by Knickerbocker in the 70's. I played wth this toy for hours on end. I sure wish I would have held onto these for my daughter to play with. Talk about hours of fun! I still have such fond memories of this particular toy.

I have to say mine was my thumblelina doll & the doll craddle my dad made for her, along with the blanket my mom made for her. I played with her for hours feeding her, changing her clothes, rocking her & cuddleing her.I still have her at my mom's house, she loves the fact that I still have her.

WOW! I remember this kitchen set that my mom got me when I was little. I think I was like four. There's a bunch of pictures of me "cooking" stuff in my little kitchen and making my mom, dad and sisters fake eat it. I really had fun with it. I also really loved the Super Nintendo! I STILL have one and still love to play it!

Interesting........hmm............

I wasn't into dolls; dolls were only good for chewing the toes off and plying Edward Scissorhands with the hair

I like games and every year Santa brought me a new game. Kerplunk, Tip-it, The Inventors, The Game of Life etc.

Christmas was also a time to get new skates and toboggans. The best toboggan I ever got was a huge sheet of heavy duty plastic (red) and a handle at the front (yellow). That thing went for MILES!!!!

I still have (and use) the skates I got when I was 14. Yes, my feet were that big then!!

I had a couple of favorites....


I had an easy bake oven that my dad said took him hours to put together, and when I ran out of the baking kits, I melted crayons and barbies.

I had a Chatty Cathy doll that my cousin broke the string on.... now they are selling for $130.00.

My game of OPERATION and MOUSETRAP.

My favorite thing of all was the Barbie Dream House I got. I'm not sure how old I was, but it was as tall as me and pink. I loved it.
