    I loved the original Strawberry Shortcake dolls as a child and collected them. I wanted the old mean man doll (I think he was the Purple Pie Man?) but never got him.

    I also never got the “Operation” game. I bought one for my kids a few years ago. Ha, ha, “for my kids.” -grinch-

    Back when I was a little girl in the later 1970s, I wanted a Baby Alive doll, an Easy Bake oven, and a Barbie swimming pool. I never got any of them because times were tough when only dad worked and there were 5 of us kids.

    It seems a few people didn’t get an Easy Bake Oven. I got one, I think that’s why I didn’t get the Tubsy doll. :)

    I think my mom said she couldn't justify because I could just bake in a real oven. :/ True, but that wasn't near as cool. Haha. When my kids wanted one, they got one. LOL.

    For the most part, when it comes to Christmas, they get the one main thing they ask for (they have to narrow things down to their #1 request), as long as it is within reason and the budget, even if it isn't something I think is super practical. Christmas is a time to make their dreams come true! (Again, within reason though).
