Friend Makin' Mondays

The ever-so-fabulous, Amber, is guest-hosting Friend Makin' Mondays today. (Typically Kasey at All That Is Good hosts). This is the first time I've participated, and it looks like so much fun! Who couldn't use an extra friend or two, is what I'm askin'! And the name of the game is:

Name 5 toys that remind you of your childhood:

Barbie Dream House

Cabbage Patch Kids

Pound Puppies

Get in Shape, Girl!

Sweet Secrets

This was a fun flashback! I'm sure we all remember the Barbie Dream House (I never owned one but wanted one so badly!), as well as the Cabbage Patch Kids. I love to see that these toys are still alive and kickin' today. Barbie will never go out of style! Does anyone remember Pound Puppies? Oh how I loved them (see, I was drivin' my mom nuts with stuffed animals back then, just as my girls do to me today!) And I loved my "Get in Shape, Girl" workout system. It was a cassette tape directing your exercises with weights, jump rope, the super-hip wrist bands and leg warmers ~ Oh YEAH! The Sweet Secrets . . . I think they may have been the one-hit-wonder of the 8o's toy!

I have not thought about Sweet Secrets in YEARS...probably like 20 or so...but I used to have some of them too! Loved those little things. Pound Puppies was almost on my list, but I had to go with my Annie doll instead. I loved the Pound Puppies cartoon! Great list!

Hope you have a wonderful week!
