Friend Makin Monday

It's Monday, so you know what time it is...Friend Makin Monday! This week, Kasey has asked Amber to host FMM, so be sure to join in on the fun.

Today Amber wants to know 5 of your favorite toys from your childhood.
Here's my list...

1.My favorite doll was Holly Hobbie...I remember even having a dress like her's and Holly Hobbie bedding, tea set, you name it...I had it with Holly Hobbie on it. Loved this doll.

2.Who didn't have a rubik's cube??? I was addicted to this stupid thing. We had a love/hate relationship. I couldn't get but one color, at the most two, so I remember taking the stickers off and cheating on this thing.

3.Fashion Plates...need I say more? This was every girls dream!

4.Loved this thing! Simply loved it.

5. But my favorite 'toy' of all? My daddy! I remember how he played with us every day when he came in from work. There was nothing he wouldn't do with us kids. From piggy back rides, horsey rides, tea partys, games, playing pac man, you name it...he was up to the fun. I love this man because he still has time to play with my son and give him some timeless memories like I now cherish. You just can't find these kind of 'toys' anywhere! Only special boys and girls get them.

Your number 5 is so sweet! What a wonderful memory.

I had completely forgotten about Fashion Plates. I don't think I have seen those or thought of those for 25 years.

My husband still plays with a Rubik's Cube! I'm too impatient for that.

Xazmin said...

So sweet about your dad! I LOVED my fashion plates!

I could never figure out the rubiks cube, I would just turn it and turn it for hours.

My son can solve it in under a minute!

Totally love your toy list. I had forgot all about fashion plates, but oh how I spent hours designing clothes.
Thanks for the flashback!
I love that spending time with your dad was on the list. What a great family you have!
