    Transformers and Ninja Turtles

    OMG, I grew up on the Transformers.  My brother and I had two grocery bags (the big paper ones no one uses anymore :/) overflowing with them!  I have very fond memories of my Ninja Turtles, too.  We had tons of them, as well.  I remember the Turtle van was...

    Little Toys

    I had a box full of tiny figurines, which I ever so creatively dubbed my 'Little Toys'. I would get lost in my own world for hours, talking through the toys, creating stories and lives for them. I liked playing with anything that couldn't talk back to me... even from a very young...

    Snoopy

    I was given a stuffed toy dog when I was very young. There are pictures of me dragging him around when I was 2 or 3 years old. I took him everywhere. I named him, "Snoopy", after the Peanuts cartoon dog. He kinda, sorta looks like Snoopy, but I don't think he was made to be...

    It brings back memories to think about it, but I really liked Lego, hot wheels and my Aurora race track.  Those toys kept me occupied for hours. I'm sure that made my parents happy.  lol

    Easy Bake Oven

    I am the youngest of four daughters. And, I have a much younger brother. As a child, I had my eye on my older sisters' Easy Bake Oven, knowing they would tire of it eventually and it would be mine. However, my next older sister used the oven to bake Mr. Potato Head. Mr. Potato...

    I Know Mine!

    I had one for sure! It was this cool Mario hand held puzzle that has four little metallic balls in it. It was diamond shaped, see through, and and 3D. You had to twist and turn through this wacky maze in it, and pretend each little ball is one of the good Mario guys, and every...

    "Andy Panda"

    He is a stuffed panda bear from an old story series.  I got him for my 5th birthday and he knows more about me than any living being.  (sure glad he can't talk)  He is now 49 years old.

    I Loved My He Man Toys

    I was a tomboy and my favorite toys to play with were the He Man figurines. I also liked to play with gi joes and the teenage mutant ninja turtles toys.  I also liked my etcha sketch, glo worm, legos and those little micro machine cars.
