These are the things that give me warm fuzzies. Click the pic to enlarge.
Barbie Townhouse (in which my kitten took more than one ride up and down the elevator. Settle down animal lovers, she liked it)
Fashion Plates (I was sure the prairie skirts and halter top was a bitchin' option for cutting edge fashion. Too bad by the time I got it, they were already outdated fashions. Ask me if I care)
Monkey Swing (Loved that thing! What I wouldn't give to be able to swing on one of these without fear of the branch breaking!)
Holly Hobbie Oven (Baking with light bulbs was the coolest! Can you imagine how many weeks it would take to cook now with an LED light?)
Lite Brite (Luckily I wasn't corrupted enough when I had to make suggestive pics or curse words.)
Strawberry Shortcake dolls (My whole room looked like Strawberry Shortcake exploded in there from wallpaper to sheets to the record album..."smile a sunny mornin'")
Wacky Wall Walker (usually found as a prize in cereal boxes and only good for about 4-6 throws before it started collecting dust and hair on the sticky adhesive that made it walk. It was never the same when you washed it off)
View Master (I really wish I could recall what discs I had back in the day but we just bought one at an antique store. Sigh)
Monchichi (Still have mine in the basement!)
Scratch and Sniff Stickers (For our 14th anniversary The Mr got me the Hot Stuff Pizza sticker and the Happy Birthday Cupcakes I always loved. Why didn't I think to keep these things!?)
Fresh N' Fancy Make Your Own Make Up (I swear I think I'm the only one that had this thing! I loved making perfumes and nail polishes and make up)
Swatch Watch (That was my Swatch. That effer sells for hundreds on Ebay now. GRRRR!)
Whoopsie Doll (You would squeeze her belly and her pigtails would move. She was my favorite baby doll)
Jarts aka- Lawn Darts (These are THE most awesome things ever. Metal tipped and you knew you'd better get your ass outta the way or risk getting impaled by grandpa if you're not paying attention. The plastic ones are for wusses)
Dream Date PJ/Barbies (She's representing the whole Barbie clan for me but she was always the one I considered the most glamorous. Interesting she's not an actual Barbie. Also had Western Barbie (who reminded me of Dottie West from my grandma's era), Crystal something or other Barbie and 10 others as well as the obligatory eunuch Ken doll whose head popped off way too easy) and finally
Simon (it was so revolutionary for its time and you didn't want to be the one who screwed up and got the ominous buzzzzzzzzzz)
What are some of your favorite childhood toys that give you the warm fuzzies?
