Toys you had when you were a kid

Recommended Posts

My favourite toys were Johnny and Jane West.

I had their two kids, and a side kick of Johnny's plus all their horses and accessories.

Johnny, Jane and the other people stood about 12 inches tall and had movable joints.

The horses were about 14 inches tall - some had movable joints.

 

I use to make stables out of boxes and made the bedding out of kleenex. Hours of fun!

When I was a child oh so long long ago in the 60's I remember having a chitty chitty bang bang car

I remember moving the gear lever and the wings flipped out into place, I have no idea what happened to it. However I still have the 1960s child picture book of that movie at home.

 

Another toy I remember

I do not know what happened to my batman belt but I still do have the gun at home, exactly the same as in this picture. This belt sold for $16,662.62 Source

 

I still have this batman book from the 60's at home I found a picture of it

What an adorable story!!!

I used to make my own paper dolls and I would sew my Barbie clothes (I got a sewing machine when I turned 7)

the things you make are always the ones you love the most.

It took a good year to finish but I loved that thing and I played with it everyday!

 

I also took some old boxes, drew little squares on them, painted them bright colors and pretended they were makeup compacts. A glimpse of things to come, perhaps?? biggrin.gif My mom used to argue with me that no one would wear bright blue and yellow eyeshadow but after ten years or so I proved her wrong. smile.gif

OMG I remember I had a few of the animal clips. How can I forget Spirograph! I remember bringing it with me to my mom's job and I'd sit there for hours playing with that darn thing til I got bored and started reading (haha)

 

Weirdly I never got into the Barbie doll craze. I did have like 2 Barbies but they either ended up being decapitated or being paraplegic...lol. I loved my Legos though!

 

Now that we're down memory lane remember Treasure Trolls?

Ange, no, I used to have several of those pacifiers, I'd have them attached to my friendship bands or around my neck and I'd suck on them, LOL.

 

These pics are bringing back major memories!

 

Faith, I used to do that kind of thing too! it was fun finding the perfect item to make into a barbie accessory, whether it be a toothpaste lid or whatever biggrin.gif

THanks everyone. You know this is a great time to remind everyone that there are those out there who are less fortunate this holiday season. If you can this year help support a charity, shelter or a family in need.

 

 

I am a big fan of Toys for Tots.
