Hello! Today is Scrappy Jessi's Favorite Childhood Toy party and I want to play!! Sorry for some of the blurry pics, but of course I waited until the last minute to look for some of these and then the scanner wasn't working, and then....well you get the picture!
Anyway, here we go. This is me at about a year and half...I loved dolls and stuffed animals and I loved my books....those Little Golden Books rock!!
Me again with my Raggedy Ann doll!
This is a new monkey I have now, but when I was young I had one EXACTLY like it.... I can't explain it, but I just have always LOVED stuffed monkeys.
Another new one, but one like I had when I was little...
Oh, this is my beloved little tiger that my beloved grandfather gave to me when I was a toddler. Obviously this little guy has been with me for forty years. My grandfather is long gone, but I just love this little guy. He proudly sits on a shelf in my studio.
Also this beloved stuffed bear of mine..little Teddie has been with me since I was an infant and also keeps little tiger (above) company on a shelf in my studio. As you can tell, I took these guys everywhere with me when I was young. They are tattered but very loved!
Here is an older me when I was about 8 or 9.....once again surrounded by stuffed animals and dolls and reading....note I was reading (and really into) Jughead and Archie....clearly that dates me!
A young me on Christmas morning with my new kitchen set....my sisters and I spent hours with that set and all the accompanying fun stuff that went with it.
You can only see one piece here but on this day, my sisters (they are the blond twins) and I received this fantastic block set and we literally played with that for years in so many different ways. I can even remember building "furniture" for our Barbies with the set!!
That's it for today! I couldn't find my pics of some of the other fun toys I enjoyed as a child................like the board game (remember those?) SORRY, Barbies and especially my beloved Barbie Camper, my Crissy doll, my Little Kiddles, etc.......I could go on.....
Thanks, Jessi for hosting this fun party!!
