My favorite toy was a Mrs. Beasley doll...I'm sure that was before your time! She was off the show "Family Affair" and I loved her dearly!

Yesterday afternoon I was cleaning out my basement. I found all my old Barbie's and had a playdate with the 4 year old across the street, Chloe. Since I have boys who couldn't of cared any less! Guess I'll hold onto them for grand daughters!!

Gotta love barbies! :) They were my all time fav as a child. (And I still have all of mine stored away)

Xazmin said...

Oh, NOW I remember twirly curls barbie!

I love that you got a stomper for Christmas!

Should I tell everyone what kind of toys you play with now?

KIDDING EVERYONE!

Alicia @ boylerpf said...

Barbie girl to the end! I laughed at the Stomper! Never would have guessed that one with the feminine ones!

Cherie said...

I was also a Barbie fanatic. I had the Barbie Motorhome and the airplane - Me and Barbie we traveled alot!
I also loved a doll I had called Mia - her hair grew and then you could twist a knob and make it shorter.

jenjen said...

Great list! I can't really remember any of my specific Barbies, except for Skipper. What fun memories!

XOXO

Have a great day.

Jenny said...

The memories! I loved My Child dolls and we had the Heart Family Barbies.

What an awesome list!

Vivienne said...

I don't speak Barbie. I recognize the truck though. Woo Hoo!
:)

Rhonda said...

Great list...lots of fun memories! I loved Barbie! The truck...funny!

Jodi said...

Great post, brings back toy memories. Does anyone remember Jem? I was her for two years in a row for Halloween! LOL!

shortmama said...

Love your sweet girl goodness mixed in with the rough and tough!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Oh my word! I had the first three toys you listed. I still have Twirly Curls Barbie somewhere, but I don't have the curling "iron" or the styling chair anymore. I had a dark haired "My Child" doll. Wow--what a blast from the past this morning! :) I wrote to Xazmin that I have got to do this list today as an extra post. :)

J.J. said...

You DID love you some Barbie!!!

I did to though, I had a barbie airplane, and town house thing with an elevator that my brother bought me with his allowance. Sweet guy.
:)

B said...

I'm not sure what the acutal name of the doll was, but I had this great soft body baby doll, when you turned her upside down she would make a crying noise. It really sounded more like a dying bovine...I called her Baby Eek. She lives in my Lil Mama's attic now, waiting on Stella to get a little older!

B said...

OH and I LOVED Tinkertoys to no end!

Heather said...

the heart family was the best! i was a barbie fan too, but i always had more fun playing with mr. and mrs. heart and their offspring.

have a wonderful week!

Amber said...

Awesome list!! I had all of those except the last one. LOVED the Barbie Corvette. I had that too!

My girls now play with a lot of the same things I played with, old & new. I kept a lot of my toys for my kids {I was one of *those*}. Plus my mom has ALL kinds of vintage toys, so my girls have the Strawberry Shortcake house, furniture, pets, dolls, etc!

So fun!

jennykate77 said...

OH my gosh! I totally forgot about the Heart Family Barbies! They were so cute w/ the babies and all the little accessories! I so remember those! I was a huge Barbie fanatic too. Love your list!

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Ashley and Eric said...

I love Barbie, and you can't have Barbie without her Ferrari! :)

mama-face said...

Ha Ha Tanielle. I see a theme going on with your toys.
You still have your Rainbow Brite? Some days I regret all the toys I've given away, especially when the Ninja Turtles made their comeback. Both boys played with them, only 14 years apart.

Save all your toys. You never know. ;-)

momma said...

this was a great fmm to do. i had a hard time deciding which 5 toys i would pick. i love your list!!

AndreaLeigh said...

i was so rough on my barbies, although I loved playing with them. I had a bad habit of cutting off their hair and tearing off their arms. I was a little bloodthristy.

...The Obnoxious SAHM.... said...

How fun is this! Very cute!! :)

Gayle said...

Isn't it fun to think about all the toys we once played with. My grand children now love the pretty ponys, strawberry shortcake, and naturally barbies.
Thanks for stopping by.

Christie in Dallas, TX said...

I loved Barbie -- still have some of my old dolls! So jealous that you had the Ferrari!

Liz @ Sugarplum Creations said...

The Heart Family Barbies!!! I had those! Oh my goodness, it's so much fun remembering :)

Lins said...

I am loving reading everyone's FMM posts and thinking "OH! I played with those too!!" The Hart Family Barbies were some of my favorites...complete with their 2.1 children and a dog.

Thanks for stopping by GM to leave the sweet comment. Looking forward to many FMM down the road!

My grandmother made me a box of beautiful dresses for my Barbie. I loved them. I handed them down to my nieces and got to watch them dress their Barbies in the dresses their great grandmother made. Someday maybe their girls will still be playing with my old Barbies and their great great grandmother's little dresses.

heidi said...

I never really was a Barbie girl. If I HAD to play I'd just dress them up over and over again LOL

Cadance said...

you were one Lucky girl...all tose Barbies! I loved playing at my cousins...they had all the Barbie accessories!

....I still have my My Little Ponies & Cabbage-patch kid dolls...but I only have Boys...so I guess they will stay packed away for some time...
