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! I believe it was my Uncle Dan and Aunt Martha that got my sister and I our first Spirograph, but that was like in 79!

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

My Favorite Turtle!

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been around for years! At least three decades now and have morphed many times. But one thing remains the same.. Raphael will always be my favorite. He won me over in the early 90’s, during the first two live action movies! His personality was unforgettable.
