Just a few things before the weekend....
A) I loved all your responses to this post. I had Kirsten, who apparently they don't sell anymore. She had a custom made 4-post bed with curtains to protect her from the winter chill in Maine and flannel sheep sheets. One day I took her braids out and then immediately regretted it as she never looked the same. She still resides in Maine with my other childhood BFFs, Edith Amelia (my cabbage patch doll) and oodles of barbies. They are all living it up in my parents attic, just like what was supposed to happen in Toy Story 3. As a little side story, my barbies completely had it made. They had a HUGE barbie mansion with three levels, complete with jacuzzi tub and tennis courts. For transporation they had their choice of a delightful vintage pink Rolls Royce convertable or berry pink 2-door hardtop Jeep, I mean we did live in Maine and the Rolls wasn't that great for off-roading with Ken. Speaking of Ken, I only had one and he had to date ALL the girls, so I guess Ken was really the one that had it made.
B) My girl Maddie started her own blog. You should probably check it out if you haven't already :)
What were your favorite childhood toys? Do you or your parents still have them?
