2 on Tuesday: Favorite Childhood Toys

It's almost that time of year, time to start Christmas shopping {for the first time I ever, I have already started...usually I don't start until Black Friday}. This year I am so excited to shop for Cecilia.  Hopefully this year she will understand the concept of Santa Claus more and she'll be really excited about opening presents.



This week in 2 on Tuesday, Andrea asks


What were your two favorite childhood toys?


Cabbage Patch Dolls


I loved playing with my cabbage patch kids.  I had several of them, I believe my mom still has a few of mine upstairs in their attic. This year I plan on buying Cecilia her first Cabbage Patch Doll.  She love playing with her baby dolls so hopefully she will add this one to the collection.

Cricket Doll
Does anyone besides me remember Cricket? You put a cassette tape in her back and she sung songs and counted with you.  Looking back this doll was kinda creepy, but at four or five years old I loved her. She went everywhere with me.  I believe Cricket came out around the same time as the Chucky movies and whenever my cousin, Connie babysat me she made my parents take Cricket with them.

Honorable mentions are: Popples, My Little Pony, Care Bears, Lincoln Logs, I could go on and on..
You can link up for 2 on Tuesday by visiting Andrea at My Chihuahua Bites

I still have my Cabbage Patch doll. My mom said she & my grandma had to fight people at the store for it! Back in the 80s those were so awesome! I also loved Lincoln Logs, I built barns & pastures for my Ponies with them!

I loved my Cabbage Patch Dolls too.:-) I never had a Cricket, but my cousin did and she always freaked me out! Maybe because her batteries were always low and she sang REALLY slowly!!

Oh my. You just brought back a lot of memories. I totally forgot about Popples! Mine was white.

I don't remember Cricket but what about Buddy - the song went "my buddy, my buddy and me!" One of my cousins had that doll. LOL I love cabbage patch dolls too. I love all the old dolls, the new ones just look weird.
