~ Random Holiday goodness... the toys!

December 1924 - The Farmer's Wife... 

The best toys I got for Christmas, was always Barbie related! Unfortunately, I grew up in the 70's. So they were not nearly as cool as the ones my sister and older cousins had. But Barbie was always a staple for me on Christmas morning. 

Let's take a peek at some great Barbie's from the mid 60's.... when Barbie was in her hey day. 
Isn't she gorgeous! 
This is a blonde American Girl Barbie in Tickle Pink @ 1966. 

Color Magic Barbie.... @ 1966

Style Barbie Cut and Curl Wig set and dryer @ 1965 ... Along with that amazing brunette American Girl, sitting in her perfect Fashion Editor outfit in turquoise.

I have always found these Barbie structures from 1966 so much more appealing. Simple. Cute. Easy to store. 

This is Barbie's sweet cousin, Francie. Who had an amazing wardrobe of her own. Also from 1966... 

I also missed out on the Kiddle's when they were new. But I still have at least a dozen of them that were hand me downs. I never got rid of my Mattel stuff. Kept it all! Along with my Dawn dolls. 

Now Christmas would not be complete... without a little pink Kitchen love... 

Along with some Revere pots and pans for those new pink kitchen shelf's.

You know what else I miss... a legitimate family owed Toy Store. It has been well over 15 years since I have seen one in business.

And to be honest I am not thrilled with the chain stores like Toys R' Us.  Maybe it is having to hike in from 60 yards. From their massive parking lots, that put me in a foul mood.  :)
