Oh funny. I just flashed back to spending summers at my grandmother's place and the things we used to play together.

Mousetrap
LiteBrite
Pickup Sticks
Lemon Twist
Chinese checkers

And anyone remember that marble game - similar to a Chinese checkers board with marbles, but the goal was to get just one marble left in the center? I used to play that for HOURS. My grandmom could win it every time.

You got it, I had one of those too. For younger chicks not in the loop, it had a drawing board, paper and pins, and gears of different sizes, two were rings, with little holes in them for a pen: you pinned one ring or gear down and placed another gear so that the teeth meshed, and then pushed off from point A drawing with the pen, and if you were lucky and the gears or pen didn't slip, when the pen got back to A you had a pretty design

I had 2 Barbies (one blonde, one brunette) but never a Ken, Skipper (Growing Up or otherwise) or Midge, or any of her peripherals; I had a Charmin' Chatty which was a talking doll with records you could change. And I had Tinkertoys and (all this in the 60s mind you) some toy cars and a toy wild-west gun (!) Hmmm, after all these years I've kind of forgotten most of the toys I had (I think a lot of them went unopened)

My dolls were my favorite toys...barbie, Ken, Midge, Francie, Skipper, Tammy, Ted, etc. I still have all of my dolls at my moms house along with my multiple cases of clothes. Other faves:
1. Spirograph
2. Hula Hoop
3. Roller skates (remember the ones you strapped onto your shoes and adjusted with a key?)
4. Slinky
5. Easy Bake oven
6. Sorry, Parcheesi, Tip It, Monopoly, Life

All of my toys are still in great shape in my moms basement, along with my other two sisters toys. I try to convince my mom to sell them on ebay...some of them are worth a FORTUNE

Kiddles - little tiny dolls that came in all sorts of things.. tiny soda bottles, jewelry lockets. etc

Barbies - I still have a bunch of mine.

Green Ghost - a glow in the dark board type game

Chrissy - yank the blonde hair out the top of her head to make it longer and then use the dial on her back to make it shorter.

Operation - i hated that game. You touched the sides of the game the wrong way and it made this Gawd awful BUZZZ

The game of Life

Clackers

Dawn dolls

Legos

The Masterpiece Game - you bought paintings? I liked this game.. cant remember why

There was this toy - cannot remember the name. It was a small yellow hoop you wore around one ankle. Attached to the hoop was a long line and a red bell shapped platic thing at the end. you spun this thing around one ankle and hoped over it with the other foot.. The really coordinated girls had one going on each ankle.. not me

Linda,

I remember something called Lemon Up that sounds similar but I guess the plastic thing had to have been yellow. This was a hit, along with hopscotch.

Clackers - oh gosh, I saw a set recently and they were dangerous. I can still recall the bruises on my hands.

My favorite Barbie had painted on hair and three wigs you could use - blond, brunette and redhead.

How about Mystery Date, Twister, etch-a-sketch, hula hoops - maybe I'm too old. ;)

Wow Linda-you brought back even more memories so I am guessing we are about the same age. I LOVED Kiddles..especially the ones in the perfume bottles and locket necklaces and I had all of the Dawn dolls and their outfits-I am going to have to look at mine when I go home for Thanksgiving. And yes, I had Velvet and Chrissy too...I loved the Orange lace dress that Chrissy came in. And I almost cracked our living room TV with my clackers! I had that hoop and bell too but I cant remember the name of it for the life of me..

my mom had that Chrissy doll I used to play w/ it when i was little. it was weird. she said she always wanted a Chatty Cathy but I saw once once and thought it was terrifying! lol.

I was of the Cabbage Patch generation. I wanted one SOOOOOOO bad. When I finally got it I was just a little too old but I still have her!
Also for dolls there was the Strawberry Shortcake doll that blew strawberry scented kisses- I got rid of her a couple years ago when she started blowing moldy kisses instead.
I loved rainbow bright, she-ra and he-man, anything thundercats (hoooo), and I would have given anything to have a pound puppy, a popple, or legos.

I loved the spirograph. I think if I could find one now I'd still love it. :)

OH man! Do I ever remember my best friend..... Laurie Walker Doll! Being so tiny (still a short thing) my family used to kid that she was taller than I was! I got her the same Christmas my brother got his first Tonka truck!

Cars/trucks in the backyard dirt villages we used to build!
Rubiks Cube and snake!
a loom weaver we made potholders out of!
those plastic strings we made key chains out of!

Jack in the box (when I was little)
Sit n Spin!
The GREEN MACHINE! (Those were the bomb!)
Operation!

Now mind you, in those days we didn't spend much time in the house in front of the tv... we spent it outside playing...

Cops and robbers,
cowboys and indians,
building forts,
hide n seek

and as you got older who can forget the nights spent at the beach flirting with the guys!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol:

I am going way back on these toys....

Remember the little metal hand held contraption that had the wheel that spun up and down either side? I forget what it's called but I loved it.

I've got a brand new pair of roller skats, and you've got a brand new key." Anyone remember that song? We heard it on our trip and I had to explain it to my daughter (although didn't explain the sexual connotation!).

I loved clackers!!! I had the bruises on my forearm to prove it!

Chinese checkers
Monopoly (for hours and hours in the basement on a hot summer day)
cards games like War and Canasta
I loved the Game of Life and bought it for my kids--I can't remember it being that BORING!

Yep.. we are close in age. I still have the Chrissy doll and she still is wearing the orange lace dress too. She is buried in a shed someplace with the rest of my dolls. Yes clackers were dangerous, but what fun!

Did you have a toot a loop? That was the radio shaped like a donut http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panasonic_Toot-a-Loop_Radio I still have mine.. in bright yellow!

My mother made me give away my Kiddles when I was younger because I had too many dolls. It was either keep the barbies or the kiddles. Have you ever checked Ebay and seen how much those little dolls are worth? I should tell her how much she made me thorw away!!

I'm going to keep looking for the name of the hoop and bell toy..it is making me nuts that I cannot remember it

We spent hours and hours every day playing jacks-outside,inside anywhere there was smooth cement or floor. Hours and hours on your butt-can't do that now! Also does anyone remember Tuesday Taylor doll-like Barbie her scalp twisted-one side blond w/bangs, other side brunette w/ no bangs. No one seems to remember this doll. I was obsessed with her. The style hair now that the girls have with blond on top and black or brunette underneath totally reminds me. Also Cher doll? The Bob Mackie style dress with big puffy-Diana Ross style hair-that I had to cut to tame. Good Times.

I had the yellow panasonic AM radio that looked like a big circle until you twisted it and then it was a speaker on one end and the dial on the other...I wore it like a big heavy bracelet...LOL. Does anyone remember the Barbie that came in a diamond patterned bathing suit with "magic wands"? If you wet one of the wands and swept it over her her it turned another color...that was so cool to me

i remember that Melanie song about the roller scates. my aunt used to sing that all the time to me when i was a little kid. :)

my favorite game when i was little was kerplunk because i could play it by myself. :C my parents liked to get me games & then never play w/ me.

i wasn't allowed legos cause i had a baby brother, and wasn't allowed play dough because well- it's messy. a couple weeks ago i bought myself a lego set to build a lego trebuchet! it was awesome.

oh! colorforms were one of my faves too. i had a micky mouse one and a smurfs one. <3

oh! i thought of another one i had this gray square math game- it was like speak and say or something? so much fun i dragged that thing around forever.

Going back to the time when the caveman first invented toys...

- A Lassie dog
- Tiny Tears Dolls
- Venus of Paradise Colored Pencil sets - there were pictures you'd color and each part of the picture corresponded to a colored pencil so even a little kid could make these pretty pictures
- Paint on Velvet picture sets
- Tinker Toys building sets
- Chemistry sets. Now that was brilliant - give a little kid unsupervised access to a bunch of chemicals. The things my brother did with a bunsen burner in the "lab" he created in the basement under the stairs. :rolleyes:

Lindsey.. that's what it looked like. I had mine in the early late 60s early 70s so no idea what it was called then. .. neither of those names ring a bell but that may just because I am senile. :p Thanks for finding this.. yup.. this is what the girls used to use on the play ground. I seem to remember some girls having one on each ankle sometimes and having them both going at the same time. This was so much fun. Hey I bet using this would be good exercise now :D

I found mine.. the search is over.. it was called the Footsie!!! http://www.timewarptoys.com/footsie.jpg Now I an stop trying to figure out what the darned thing was called... it was giving me a headache!

I was a cashier at Target when those came out. We could sell only one per customer. HOLY MOLY the **** that raised. Parents were freaking. And, this was in WY where we don't have a lot of big crazes. 5' nothing, 90 lb. mothers were screaming at ME:rollpin:, threatening to send their husbands back in to straighten ME out:club:. I didn't write the rule. As far as I was concerned, they could buy 20(all the quicker to get them out of the store, IMO).

My kids have never once in their lives gotten the "Hot Toy of the Year" due to the fact that I would never want to be pushed to that level of insanity over a butt-ugly doll.:snooty: I'll save my insanity of double chocolate angel food cake or maybe that Fatty Melt, Thank You.:drool:

I was seriously fond of books, puzzles, and being creative. I loved big card board boxes (like the kind appliances came in back then.) I remember playing and having fun, but I don't remember too many toys from those days. My memory must be going already... ;)

I loved my bike, skates, and skateboard. As far as actual toys go I loved Barbie, Rainbow Brite, She Ra, Jem, and my Real Baby. I still have my Hugga Bunch and A.L.F. and even a couple of Pound Puppies. I don't know why I like to hang on to some things.
