and the cute Corning wear play dishes! Does anyone remember that bigger doll? Her name was Teachy Keen. You learned how to tie your shoes with her, and I think she even had a little watch on her wrist. If you go to the link for it, scroll all the way towards the bottom and you can see the ad.
This particular Christmas, I really have vivid memories of. I truly remember all the toys laid out, and the awe and amazement, that Santa had come! My dad made the little kitchen table with the plastic cooking utensils on it. At the time though, I thought Santa's elves had made it for me! The little fridge and stove were probably my very favorite toy though I must say. Endless hours of fun with it. I made many mud pies with that baby!
The one toy I didn't like, was the Skooter doll. I thought she was kind of ugly, and if you are too young to remember this doll, click on the link and see just how homely this poor little girl was. I remember when I was a bit older, I liked Skipper, and thought she was really cute, but wondered why I got the ugly friend instead. Looking at the boxes though in the photo, I think I did get the other version, come to think of it. I just know that I wasn't fond of Skooter, and didn't play with her much. At one point, by brother put weird glue in her hair, and she was even more tragic looking then.
Do you remember your favorite toys as a kid?
On another note, I went fabric shopping yesterday and picked up some more fall goodies. I'm finally starting to get inspired for the upcoming season. I think I might make one more summer thing though, that I think will be cute. Not sure yet, but stay tuned.
