A Western Barbie 1980

I’ve shared some fond memories of both Transformers and ThunderCats, but have yet to mention the dolls I remember. So I’ll start with my Western Barbie, I received her around the Christmas of 1980! Dallas was a huge hit during that time period, so she fit right in! She came with a wink, some autographs and some kisses!

Thundercat Race Set

Thundercats-Slot-Car-Racer_1335976286

I’m tempted to write some Childhood Memoirs, starting with this Thundercat race set. Dare me to do it?! (Thundercat Race set box art above). Back during the mid eighties, my parents used to shop at Acme Click, which is now known as Acme. It wasn’t just a grocery store then, it was like Super Walmart; with clothing and toys. So while my parents shopped for things we needed, I would go admire the toys! This Race Set was one of those items.

Remembering A Voice Actor Reunion!

I’m sharing a fond memory from four years ago! Wally Burr was the man that originally planned this reunion. He called me many nights, going over whom would be interested in attending. For me it was an amazing experience, working with a man I considered to be a legend! Micheal Bell, Neil Ross and Wally Burr were the three main men that made the reunion possible, I just had the wonderful opportunity of helping to host it! It was an amazing time, something I’ll never forget! I’ve been so blessed to have known and still chat with such amazing talents! [The photo above comes from that week; Corey Burton invited us into the Studios to watch him record an episode of The Neverland Pirates! Then he signed some charity pieces!]

Z0015187

Love those seventies boys toys! This one was based off of a real private investigator/actor! Released by Ideal in 1978, Jay J. Armes had detachable prosthetic attachments, various gadgets, and a Mobile Investigation Unit!

Wishing everyone a Happy New Years, with some Dick Clark memories! Always loved his count downs, growing up! (On a personal note.. Sorry for my delay on blogs, it’s just been a busy holiday season! I’ve been in Ohio most the time, visiting family and friends. Then I’ve been running non stop the past three days! This is honestly my first real break. I haven’t had much time, to even check messages or to post on Instagram. But I plan to catch up soon!)

The fashions of 1975!

Looking through old wish books this weekend, I thought it time I start spotlighting again. Not only the toys fascinate me though, but the fashions! And apparently the color green was a very popular color.. For those that remember the seventies, 1975 especially. I hope you enjoy this fashion flashback! I plan to blog more in the near future!
