Let's be honest.... If you were a kid born in the 80's playing in the 90's, you were blessed with the most awesome toys and play equipment EVER!
So today I present to you the most favorite toys of my childhood- because how on earth could I choose just one!?!
I loved my Viewfinder. I had so many reels and would spend hours clicking through the images and making up stories. I remember being devastated when one of my most favorite reels was destroyed because it had gotten wet. If my memory serves me correctly, my sister paid the price for her crime lol.
I love hearing stories from Teddy Ruxpin. If I had ever been sent to bed early for misbehaving and couldn't watch T.V, I had the most pleasure in pressing play on the cassette tape and imagining the scenes until I drifted off to sleep.
I loved how Teddy blinked his eyes and moved his mouth. That made for extra fun times when I would try to share with him Vegemite sandwiches.
I will never forget the hiding I got for cutting his little puff of hair between his ears. My mother was so angry with me. But of course being me, that wasn't the last time that I cut one of my toys hair.
Which reminds me of another hit in my toy box......
I absolutely loved my collection on troll dolls and I wasn't the only one. I recall going to bingo in the city with my Oma and watching some of the old ladies pulling out their good luck Troll dolls along side their dab pens. I envisioned the collection I would have by the time I was their age and how I would transport all my dolls to bingo each week.
My sister and I would play games of monopoly gambling our different Trolls. I don't know why she stopped wanting to play for my Trolls I had given the famous haircut? Mum wasn't too impressed with my new look Trolls either.......yep, I remember that too!
Waterful ring toss
Now playing outside was a very important part of my day. Santa didn't fail to impress when he left behind new bicycles and.....
Although, as much as I really wanted a Skip It after seeing the little girl down the road prance about so effortlessly, I could never ever Skip the bloody thing. I loved it but never used it. Just like other favorite i never conquered.....
Take me back to the days of playing my favorite cassettes, wearing hypercolor tee-shirts and slap wrist wraps. When we left to play when the sun came up and returned home when the sun went down....those were the good old days!
