I just got the coolest toy catalog, and it makes me wish I was a kid again so I could play with this stuff…the site is called back to basics toys, and ironically enough, it’s mostly toys that I played with, or ones similar to them. Wanna see what would be on my wish list???


Ok, I have to amend one of my answers from the meme. My favorite Christmas Present when I was a kid was a science kit. I was 10, and it had a chemistry kit, and a miscroscope with things to disect, and slides, and stuff that even today makes me a bit giddy…


I can’t wait til my boys are a bit older. I am totally gonna geek out on them (shut up! I know I already do!)


Since I have boys, I guess my dreams of having a dollhouse aren’t going to be coming anytime soon, but I did love playing with trains and cars too…


Oh how I loved this silly clock! It sat on my nightstand for I don’t know how many years, and I think I may get one for my youngest this year…


 I had this too…is it just me, or were toys more fun back then??


Anyone for an old fashioned game of Gnip-Gnop??


Oh, Mrs Beasley…I loved her so much. *sigh*



Anyone else up for some vintage toy love? Too bad they don’t have the same prices as they did when I was a kid, but I am definitely putting a few of these under the tree this year…FOR THE KIDS OF COURSE 😉
