A 1980's Christmas List

Today the Toys 'R' Us big toy book came in the mail. My kids couldn't wait to circle all the things they wanted to ask Santa for. This made me start thinking about the things I had probably asked Santa for when I was their age.

Let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we? On to the 1980's to visit some of my favorite toys...

1. Popples

2. A Thundercats Lion-O action figure

3. Jem and The Holograms Lunchbox

4. Garbage Pail Kids Collector Cards

5. My Pet Monster

6. Kissyfur VHS

7. Fraggle Rock Dolls

8. Voltron Action Figure

9. Talking ALF Doll

Now that I looked up and found all of my favorite toys from when I was a kid I have come to realize that I would still be excited if Santa brought me any of these things this year. Toys from our childhood will always be cool no matter how old we get :) What were some of your favorite toys growing up?

Ta Ta for now

I loved "Pound Puppies" and the Little Tykes doll house that I had. Oh my gosh, I probably had every sing accessory that they made for the thing!

I was also a big fan of anything Disney....Beanie babies too!

Holy crap! Gem! "SYNERGY!" I watched that show all the time!

I was never allowed to have a garbage pail kid though. Can't say I blame them.

Did have a cabbage patch kid though. We had to rain check it cause they were sold out and we were bummed because the girls club we went had a group of girls who started a cabbage patch kid club and you had to have a doll to be a member. They made us honorary til we got our dolls. Then when we got older we put fake blood on their face and hung it in a tree for Halloween.
