Friend Makin Monday!!!

I thought this was a cute idea... so thought I'd give it a whirl this week!  My friend Kelli does this and it's been fun getting to know her better!  Please join us!! :)  We would LOVE to have you follow along with "everyone".... just go here...

What 5 of your favorite toys from your childhood were?

1. My strawberry shortcake dolls - MANY hours of enjoyment from these.  Mom still has them and now R plays with them... it's so cute!!

2. Barbie - having a sister who also loved Barbie made these even more fun. We had some really cool blow-up furniture...  good times.

3. My Bike - many scrapes and scars later - I learned how to ride my banana seat bike.  

4. our Sandbox - I know technically it's not a toy, but we had a HUGE sandbox with a rusty metal swingset.  With our Tonka trucks - we could create quite the towns!

5. Mandie doll - I'm sure they had a "real" name... she was made by Fisher Price.  I LOVED this doll!  Still have it and have to restrain myself from playing with it :)....

Feel free to play along!!!!

  2. Hi,
    I enjoyed your toys too! We had a big sand box too. I know I spent hours in it! Have a great week!

  3. So glad you joined in! It's so nice to meet you.

    I loved playing in the dirt. My grandma had a big load of dirt brought in one year so all of us grandkids could play in it. We played for HOURS. So much fun.

    I still have some of my childhood toys that I saved for my girls.

  4. Of course a sandbox was a toy! My little one loves his sandbox with his dump trucks. Enjoyed your list.

  5. Welcome to FMM!! It is lots of fun and a great way to meet people!

    How great to have a sister to play Barbies with all the time- I only had brothers and they just wanted to decapitate my Barbies.....

    Have a super week!


  6. What girl didnt like Barbies!? I was so obsessed with mine :)

  7. Ah yes, the sandbox. So much fun!

  8. Loved Barbies too! I would fix their hair non.stop.

  9. Nice to meet you on MMF!! Great list! The sandbox...I loved ours!

  10. Loved your list...especially the sandbox. Brings back memories of HOURS of fun and building!

  11. I loved my sandbox...except for the cat poo, that was a bit gross! In fact we would build rivers and lakes and fill them with water, then the Barbies went swimming. Loved doing that!

  12. I so remember the "Mandy" doll. It wasn't one of my favorites, but one of my friends LOVED that doll! I also loved Barbies and Strawberry Shortcake! Great list!

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

  13. Oooh sandboxes! :) Great list...and your cupcake background is adorable!
