thing where they use letraset/presstype rub-downs so you can place characters on a back-ground. Know what I mean?

Not colorforms, this was permanent. Sort of.

I actually broke out the box of LEGOS with the lego pirate ship pieces in it this weekend past, me & my son pooled our efforts to build a LEGO SPACE PIRATE SHIP.

Aww, I wanted that Avatar lego to have something to do w/ Ultima.

the only game my brothers and i loved to play forever and ever was crossbows and catapults. my mom used to get mad because we always had to move the fridge to get the pieces out from underneath.

You are referring to Presto Magix, my good man.

Ooh, and the treehouse thingy - I forget if it was Fisher Price, but it was a treehouse, and you pressed down on the top of it, and it opened up and the family lived inside, and outside, there was a little bush that was the dog house. I loved that thing.

My sister's supersized Barbie doll with a silver spangled sequined bathing suit or dance costume, i.e., leotard

My Hollie Hobbie dolls - the big one - the mother - and her three daughters - although I do not remember their names

My yellow lab Sparkie which I gave to my niece Sabine because I am too big for toys

youn, Monday, 14 May 2007 23:54 (6 years ago) Permalink

Yes, Presto Magix indeed! I actually have some, my sister bought me some at some hipster vintage store in chicago years ago and I've held onto it.

The treehouse sounds familiar.

One specific toy of mine was a floating gilligans island. It made bath-time fun!

And then there's Crazy Foam! All the stuff I found online is too vintage for my memories though.

when i got back from vacation, i emptied my suitcase to reveal i had unwittingly carted my (and maybe my sister's) apparently acid-influenced mid-80s Empire Strikes Back Presto Magix all over California

It's kind of alarming how many of the products on this thread that my kids actually have right now. (Not to mention that my husband continues to buy old LEGO sets off Ebay...)

Sara R-C, Tuesday, 15 May 2007 00:11 (6 years ago) Permalink

surely it's comforting -- these are pretty classic toys (yay hasbro!)

I should probably try to enjoy the toys more myself. Time to get the Shrinky Dinks out...

GOLDEN GIRL AND THE GUARDIANS OF THE GEMSTONES

luna, that was one of my first Barbies.

And Fisher Price Little People! I am so annoyed that they changed the design, stupid so-called "choking hazard".

tokyo rosemary, Tuesday, 15 May 2007 01:55 (6 years ago) Permalink



I had this. It came out in 1966, so I was 10. You made your own candy spiders and centipedes by squeezing sugary goop out of a tube into a mold and baking it. I can still remember the smell and taste.

this is just reminding me of looking through the toy section of the sears catalogue at all the toys I never got because I was the third child and my parents just kind of got tired of buying toys.

Yerac, Tuesday, 15 May 2007 04:28 (6 years ago) Permalink

ok luna, that chicken game stole hours of my time if i remember.

I wish I could have done this with mine :(

Luuuuust

Also WTF?




And last but not least:

kv_nol, Tuesday, 15 May 2007 09:29 (6 years ago) Permalink

Ohmigod, I wanted but never had:




I had to make do with my brother's mechano.

I was never good at gender appropriate toys.

So the first thing I thought of when I saw this thread was Creepy Crawlers (and the Creeple People, Fun Flowers etc. variants.) Evidently there's a version of these plastic-molding things still being made.
