Etsy Faves & A Little Throwback Thursday

It's funny how coming across an old toy can take you back to a special time and place isn't it? I remember specifically playing with a lot of these. I remember snippets of my day, what I was feeling, who I was with, what game I was playing....it's kinda crazy.

I totally remember playing with one of these. I don't remember if it was mine or if it was at my Grandma and Grandpa's, but I specifically remember the sound it made. It was like the wheels made a winding sound when it was pulled or pushed. This jalopy makes me happy. I almost want to buy this for the Bambinos even though they're probably too old for it already. Can I just buy it for myself?

 *Update, after getting on facebook, I know I owned it, you can see the wheels.

I remember having one of these when I was little. I'm not sure if I played with it much, but I had it.

I don't think I played with this much, but I remember owning one of these when I lived in Eastern Washington. I remember holding the yellow knob so it would play slower or kind of warped. I'm actually kind of surprised I remember that :)

I was sooo excited to find this online. I've compared modern doctor's kits to this one and actually took one back to the Disney store because I didn't think it was as cool as the one I had when I was little. I remember playing with the stethoscope, especially. I used to invert the ear pieces all the time, I'm not exactly sure why. Or, I used to talk into the foam of the stethoscope thinking I'd be able to hear myself a lot louder. And I remember squeezing the blue bulb of the blood pressure cuff to make the needle move as fast as it could.

I can't remember if I actually had this but it would make sense if I did since my dad works on airplanes. It's so funny that this is how Little People used to look. I had no idea these were Little People until I started favoriting things on Etsy. I would totally buy this for the Bambinos....but sadly it's been sold already.

These. Oh how I loved my skates. I'm not sure if I got them for Christmas when I was 3 or my 4th birthday (since they're 9 days apart) but I LOVED these.
I think this was my 4th birthday?
I'm not sure if I used them outside much or only inside on our carpet or in our kitchen, but I loved these skates. I even tried to tell my sister, who wasn't even born yet, about them last summer when I was looking for roller blades for myself.

What toys do you remember from your childhood? Do you still own any of them?

  1. Love this. I used to ROCK those skates (I have scarred knees that would say otherwise. . .) I love the pics of young you! Your little ones resemble you SO much!

  2. Oh my gosh you totally just took me back!! I had that little plane and I loved that little radio!! Do you remember the little phone with wheels that was on a string that you could pull around? I used to love that thing too.

    I'm glad my parents actually kept some of our toys... I know they have my barbies. I can't wait to pass them to my children :)

  4. Little Lindsay was SO CUTE! I remember loving those skates, too. I'm impressed with your memory! I can hardly remember the toys I loved and played with (other than a stuffed hippo I had), but I'll have to ask my mom. So sweet!

  5. That took me back for a different reason. I remember these days as if they just happened. What a joy it was to share these times with you...until you moved to that nasty West Side. ;) Thanks for the memories. Loved you then. Love you still. Always have. Always will.
