Im sure I am dating myself when I post these pictures, but here it goes anyway. Every year on Black Friday afternoon we go help my Mother in law decorate the church. While they are hanging the garland and wreaths I take the boys into the playroom. This is the only time of year that I go in there and every year it takes me back to my own childhood. Most of the toys are donated from church members and they are OLD, just like me. These toys in particular are some of the ones I had while I was growing up and seeing them puts a huge smile on my face. Let me know if you recognize any of these or if you too had them as a child.
Here are the animals that went to the farm set, which is shown below. There is also an Elephant and Thumper in the picture.
My Buddy and Bananas in Pajamas!!!
I had this same farm and played with it for years. I saw an ornament at Hallmark the other day that was a miniture replica of this toy.
Here is the real deal....An original See and Say. I know they still make these, and my boys have one that we keep in the van. But it is still sentimental to see an older one.
I dont really know what these were called but I remember having them and building weird animals over and over.
I hope everyone had a great holiday and still have full bellies. I am stuffed from having leftovers after the church was all decorated. Now Hubby and the boys are out front putting up some yard decorations....it is too cold for me so I will sit right here in my cozy, warm pajamas....blogging and daydreaming about toys from my past.
