    BOOKS! BOOKS! BOOKS! My Nancy Drews and my Paddington Bears, My Little House on the Prairies, My World Atlas and a diary with a key. By the time I was 12, I was reading those pulp fiction Gothic Novels and my parents would buy them by the dozen, used, and wrap them up. Also, art supplies, charcoal and paints, new brushes (is there anything more beautiful than a watercolour set, untouched, and brand new brushes, a watercolour book?) I also still have the checkers board my grandmother gave me when I was ten. Cherished, this.... I think my favorite "toy" was a game called Simon... it lit up and you had to copy the pattern. I liked it because we played it together.. family time! hugs to you!

    Well this is memory lane......we had Monopoly, Snakes and Ladders, Jacks, marbles( loved the sound of that marble bag chinking) Pick Up Sticks. Played Grab with my parents deck of cards, Legos .....had a rag doll, a doll with a fur bonnet, a kewpi doll and the prize one was a walkie doll whose head moved left to right as her legs moved and her eyes closed when she lay down and she said MaMa when you turned her on her tummy. Got a real live pony when I was 11 but had to share with my brother. Golden books, Alice in Wonderland, Maverick, Black Beauty,

    What I never got and REALLY wanted were my own small tv set (my stepbrothers instead got it, and I had to ask to use their room and view it), the big talking doll that recorded your own voice (I wanted it so bad but never got it, we were too many kids in our family) and finally my first bike, which i had to spend all summer working for myself.

    gosh, you have the memory of an elephant. hahaha. All I remember getting, and liking, were: Thumbellina doll/ a pretty ruby ring/ my hoppity hop/ a pogo stick (I loved hopping, what can I say?) troll dolls/ clothes, ugggg, I never liked getting clothes. That's really all I remember! I am sure I got other things, just nothing stand out like the ones I mentioned.

    So many of the same ones you mentioned, and although I was "girly"..I also had a big brother who got some of the boy-toys that you speak of, and I played with those too! My lunch pail was Dale Evans! My brother had Gene Autry! My bike was a Schwinn, my skates had a key to make them fit.....Did you ever play Careers? Don't suppose you ever had a buggy for your dolls, Craig......I would walk mine down the sidewalk, pleased as punch !! I was a combo of girl/tomboy....had a cowboy hat, boots, a pair of chaps, and a toy holster with a toy gun...and we played cowboys in the back yard, with a stick pony to ride!
