    Ooo I never had one of those record player thingys, but I loved them anyway :) I think they had them at the playgroup I went to..

    My fave toys as a kid were the Sylvanian Family range..I loved the bus with the picnic hamper, and had the doctors surgery. I also loved these fairy things that sat on a base with a string on it, and when you pulled the string they flew into the air and spinned around :D

    I found our wrinkles the other day!! It was at my Dads house in a box, he is the baseball wrinkles!!

    I also had glo worms, the ones where you can tip his hat to make him asleep or awake!

    I also found Kevin the Gerbil and Roland Rat - I loved them!

    I also had a Rainbow Brite doll and used to try and comb her hair - has anyone ever tried combing yellow wool - not easy!

    As I mentioned before Teddy Ruxpin and Grubby were my alltime favourites, my sister had a babytalk which we called Lucy, her hair went funny too - maybe it was us!!!

    I had the blue snatch bed linen.

    I also have the Paddington Bear - he still sits at my Dads house keeping guard of the nursery, he isn't the one with the dunlop wellies though, they are worth a fortune!


    I loved all my toys, but I always wanted my friends toys!

    I had one of those record players too they were great.

    My favourite toys were weebles - i had a roundabout, slide, swing and seasaw - I used to love spinning the roudabout so fast that they felloff :oops:

    A dolls house that my dad made me was my most favourite thing - he put wall paper in it and everything I loved it.

    Also remember the first tv game I had it was a tennis game where you had a rectangular block you used to move to hit the ball - god I'm old.
