There were so many great toys when I was growing up. Some, I wasn’t allowed to have, like the Easy Bake Oven. Bitter?? You bet I am. Every child needs a piece of equipment they can burn their fingers off with . . . right???
So, here are some of the toys I actually received.
This one only lasted maybe a week before she stopped tumbling. I was so bummed.
This, my friends, was the original Barbie Dream House. I know you are so jealous, but, at the time, I thought it was amazing.
I loved this toy!! I carried him everywhere.
This is the doll to make up for my lack of Easy Bake Oven. She was pretty cool, but Mom didn’t let me use her all that often.
Yes, I know, how appropriate and Sis and I loved this game. We’d love to find it again.
As I got just a bit older, Barbie ruled! Whoops, can’t forget the airplane. Yep, had that too.

Hey! I had the Barbie plane, too! And I also didn't get an easy bake oven.
Also, what the hell is it with you people and monkeys??? *shudder*
I didn't get an Easy Bake Oven either. Boo. I had one of the monkeys too!! And a ton of Barbie stuff, though I think my mom played with it more than me, haha.
I loved my monkey, but I am so still bitter about the Easy Bake Oven.
I so think we were robbed with the EBO!! And, yes, another monkey lover. He was my boon companion for many years
