Oh the Joys of all the Toys!

When I was a little girl, I loved Holly Hobbie! I had a small plastic Holly Hobbie pool! I spent many a hot summer day cooling it in that pool! Oh the joys of childhood!










I remember one year for Christmas, I got a Strawberry Shortcake doll! I loved the way she smelled!














Oh the Barbies I had as a girl!  I wish I had pictures of all the Barbies I had! Here is a beautiful one!








I never will forget my first Baby Alive! I loved to feed her and change her diapers!












One year for Christmas, I wanted a new baby Doll. I also wanted a baby bath to give her a bath in. She came complete with a tiny little bar of Ivory soap and Johnson's  baby powder. That year my Daddy made a wooden doll cradle for me. My Grandmother had stitched to cushion for my doll cradle. The best gifts are made with love!










One of my favorite toys as a child was my Little people doll house. I could carry it with me where ever I went!









I loved my toys but I really loved to play with my brother's toys too!






late in the evening, as the sun went down, we would go outside and play in the dirt!






I had a lot of dolls. One of my favorite dolls was a grow hair doll! She could have long hair and she could have short hair.

















When I got older, I wanted to learn how to fix hair and put make up on! I loved my makeover Barbie!









last but not least was my Sony Walkman! I was so happy when one Christmas, my second Mom, Brenda bought me this! I was the happiest girl in the world!
