My Favorite Toys

Okay, this is going to make me look very old but I wanted to share some of my favorite toys that I had as a kid...

*Rainbow Brite and twink
I can still picture her sparkly, plastic dress and her yellow yarn hair. Whoever did her make-
up rocked!

*Barbie Fashion Plates
These were like paper dolls on crack! I was a fashionista from a very young age.

*Easy Bake Oven
This was a defining toy for me. You see, I never used their mixes or recipes. I use to make up my own! This is when my love for cooking began.

Alright, I know most of you are saying "That's a boys toy!" My brother and I bonded over our giant red boxes filled with Lego's. We'd spend hours constructing houses and buildings. I wish I could get my kids into them.

*My sparkly blue banana seat bike
My Daddy bought it for me and taught me to ride it. My brother and I would take off for the day to 7 eleven and drink coke slurpees and then head over to the playground and climb up on the picnic shelters and jump off. Then we'd go off-roading and build these giant mounds of dirt and try and "catch some air" at the local construction sites. Our bikes vastly expanded our horizons and play spots. I guess I was a bit of a tomboy then. Where were my parents!?
