    I've been feeling rather nostalgic recently. Christmas used to be all about the toys! What were some of the toys you associate with Christmas? What were the treasures you hoped were under the tree? The ones you dreamed about in those weeks leading up to the Holidays?

    If you have pics, please post. This could be a fun stroll down memory lane.

    I love action figures! These guys popped up each Christmas for five or so years until I had most of the collection...

    So true Ryan. There was always that one special toy you dreamed about and hoped Santa would leave under the tree.

    That must have been a very impressive collection! I am a huge superhero fan. Comics, figures, films everything!

    One year it was the cabbage patch doll for me. They were almost impossible to get but my mom came through for me.

    The doll came with an adoption certificate and I named her Patricia, Patty for short LOL. We made a big deal of it and had a party to welcome her with my favourite tea set. It all felt so important. :D and I was so excited!

    The following Christmas Patty got a baby brother and we named him Peter.

    I don't have photos here but perhaps I'll ask mum to dig out one with Patty, Peter and me :)


    Thanks for bringing back this special memory!

    That's a great memory! Thanks for sharing.

    I remember the Cabbage Patch craze. My brother wanted one and got a boy one named Ozzy (I think). My mom waited in a long line to get that!

    Do you remember there was a story in the National Enquirer about the eyes glowing and there was a whole phase when people were saying they were cursed or something. I have a vague memory of it.

    P. S Mums are the absolute best aren't they. Not all heroes wear capes :)

    Ahhh! Cabbage Patch dolls!
    I bet Patty was lovely!
    My Grandma made my dream come true, she brought me my Bronson Chuck. What a name! :D
    I remember his official paperwork being so neat!

    Now that's funny! Did you name him or was that his "given" name when you got him?

    More like Bosley, John Bosley!

    I thought maybe as a little girl you were a big Charles Bronson fan. ;)
