Entertaining Boys & Girls of 1971


I continue this journey down memory lane.. I was to young to remember the Christmas of 1971, but many of these toys I remember from my childhood! Such as Lite -Brite! I also had Legos.. Still do today 🙂 Dressy Bessy was a doll I remember playing with, can’t remember if I owed it. I also remember Frisky Frog, Inchworm and Punch Ball!

Enjoy! Games and Boys Toys soon I promise! For you toy collectors Retro Con 2017 is but a month away!
