Early Spring Cleaning Find: My Old Toys
Believe it or not I do, at times, do more than blog and read, sometimes I clean house! *wink* Well today I was looking through my closets (yeah I have two but unfortunately they're not full of my clothes) and I found some of my old toys! I cleared out my Barbie collection at least ten years ago but some I kept for sentimental reasons for instance a few my grandmother had bought for me before she passed on and today I found them again. Oh boy the memories! I can remember playing house even though I never had a dream house I improvised using a cardboard box or just pretended that Barbie was off on a road trip since I did have the Barbie car. No Corvette of course because even in those days I was a Mustang girl.
Besides my Barbies I also found a Cupcake doll! For those who are little younger they were dolls that wore plastic and rubber clothes (don't worry they were prettier than they sound) that you could literally turn inside out so the doll looked like a cupcake. So cool, or at least I thought so back in the day. Will someone please tell me that they remember those dolls? :-) I also found an old Troll doll with neon purple hair and a tutu! I think everyone my age had at least one Troll doll, right? I was no Mimi Bobeck but I had a few back in the day. The 90s were good for toys. I remember some of my favorites including the Magna Doodle, Betsy Wetsy, and the ever popular Creepy Crawlers! Those were the good old days. At the risk of sounding old...where have all the cool toys gone that don't require ten page instruction booklets and an Internet connection? *Sigh* times sure have changed.
