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!

I’ve always loved my Wish Books! So.. I’m slowly getting back into that, honoring the year I was born, 1971! These are all photos from a Sears book! The craftsmanship that went into these dolls.. Is simply amazing!
My mom said I had a Mrs. Beasley, she was designed after Buffy’s doll in Family Affair!
This blue carriage looks similar to one I had as a kid!
