10 Dec Toys at Christmas- Vintage Toys I Used to Have
Looking at some of the toys that are out there; I was thinking about the toys I used to have as a kid and thought I would share these now vintage toys.
I thought it would be a fun look back at some of the toys I had, that are considered retro. Does anyone else think that things from the 80s and 90s shouldn’t be called “vintage”? 🙂
I must have considered either being a designer or Fashion blogger as a kid, as I owned the popular “Fashion Plates.”
This was made of heavy duty plastic plates, in which you would create outfits and color over the plates to “draw” the outfit. You would choose different plates to create different outfits.
I learned that this made now, by another company, and is not the “heavy duty” Fashion Plates I used to have, but could still be fun for a budding fashionista!
This Barbie Fashion Plates is the current version below.
Bozo the clown . My mom told me I used to hug bozo as a small child. 🙂 But know a child that has extra energy?
Maybe the domesticity seeds were planted! LOL. I was so proud to help mom vacuum the floors, even though it looked like a mutli-colored popcorn popper! I also had a mop and broom! This retro toy is from Fisher Price. Isn’t it interesting many of the toys for girls revolved around fashion and keeping a nice house?!
Remember Spirograph? We used to create designs for hours! the Kenner Toy Co. acquired the U.S. distribution rights and began selling the multi-piece plastic sets in 1966. By the 1970s, the toy, which allowed one to draw “a million marvelous patterns,” was a favorite with artistically inclined children and adults all over the country. * source Staker.com
Our family loved to play games together Do you remember…’
What are some of the “retro toys” you remember receiving? Tell me in the comments, I would love to hear from you!
I’m keeping it a bit short today, as we just came home yesterday from a long drive to Pittsburgh. I need to recoup!
Have a great weekend!
