Did you have a favorite toy growing up? Was is special because you just loved it or did it come from someone special in your life? How old were you....about? Do you still have it?

This is going to rattle a few cobwebs but don't strain or stress over it at all! Just whatever you remember that brings back warm or happy memories. This one is hard for me because I wasn't "toy" kind of kid. I got Barbies and hated them...never told mom but they sat on a shelf until I gave them to a young cousin when I was our of high school. The one toy I remember wanting when I was probably around 5 or 6 was a tall doll I had seen in a store. She was nearly 3' tall, had beautiful red hair and her eyes even shut when you laid her back. It was like a miracle...those eye things. (This was around 1956 ya She had a very feminine figure with a pinched waistline and curvy parts...not a baby doll but a real mature girl. Oh she was beautiful but I remember mother telling me that she was just too expensive. She was ironing some pillowcases when we had the discussion and I can remember it so well. We didn't have lots of money so I knew she was out of the question. But I did ask Santa to bring her to me. Even wrote a letter but didn't get my hopes up too much.

On Christmas morning when I came down the stairs there was my beautiful doll sitting under the tree!! shocked smhair I was stunned, happy, amazed and so thankful that Santa knew what I wanted. She is probably the one toy I really enjoyed and today she sits in my living room with the other toy I loved...a homemade stove/oven with real drawers and doors. Dad made it when I was very young. Now the grandkids play with the doll and the oven. Her eyes still work but her hair....well, it's still red but gave her a few haircuts when I was

What toy(s) did you love when you were young? Feel free to share and talk about them...I sure did and I didn't think I had anything to share on this topic.
