Anyways. . . on to more interesting stuff. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE pinterest? Lately I've noticed a lot of people pinning things from the past and I just had to pick out a few of my childhood faves to share w/ y'all.
Do you remember pogo balls? I had a blue and gray one and my brother had a red and black one. I loved this thing. I can remember bringing it to recess at school and jumping all over the place. So much fun!
MY LITTLE PONY
I must have had 100 ponies. I loved playing w/ these little friends. I had many accessories for them too. I never liked Barbie but I loved My Little Pony!
Ok so wish I was the one to invent these silly toys! I had an entire basket filled w/ koosh balls. All different sizes and colors. I loved playing with and collecting these things. Not sure why!
Do they still make these? I can't even remember if they were comfortable but I know I had a pair in every color when I was little. Now I can't even decide if I think they are cute or cheesy but I know I loved them as a kid!
Did you have one of these awesome plastic necklaces with all of the charms? I remember "trading" charms w/ friends and being so excited to get a "new" charm to add to my collection!
CABBAGE PATCH KIDSI could do an entire post on these little friends. I had (well I should save have since they are in my parent's attic packed away for my future children or my nieces) 12 CPK. Yes 12! I could probably still tell you all of their names too. Haha! CPK was one of my most favorite things as a kid. I loved dolls and played w/ these all the time. One of my favorite memories is one day after school my mom picked me up and told me that The Fair (a store kind of like a Target today) had just gotten in some CPK (as they were impossible to get your hands on) and she was taking me to get one. We went over and I got to pick one out to add to my collection. I actually can't remember which one I got that day but I think it was "Laura" w/ the light brown hair in a pony tail w/ a pink dress (Mom do you remember?) Did anyone else love CPK as much as me?
Gymp will always remind me of summer and camp. I was the gymp queen. I could do square, circle, zipper, butterfly, etc. I loved doing gymp and thought it was really cool that camp had so many colors to choose from!
