Christmas Story, the best Holiday Movie!

Target has some awesome Christmas Story items in their dollar section right now.  They've got notebooks and pens along with stress balls (or bars) and Cookie Cutters.

"Oh Fudge"  Lifebouy Soap shaped stress bar.  Are you supposed to bite it?

Leg Lamp Cookie Cutters.

Play Kitchens

I love, love, love vintage play kitchens.  Especially dollhouse size!  I have a few pieces from the 40's and 50's that I think are just adorable.  I have only recently started collecting these, so I'm still trying to figure out what I want and what I have space to display.  I recently bought this ADORABLE Deluxe Dream Kitchen that is the size of Barbie, Tammy, and other similar size fashion dolls.  It's super cute, but much too big.  My sister came over and we played Barbies! 
We got them all set up and I took tons of photos.  I am listing it for sale because it doesn't really fit in with my other dollhouse size toys.  It will be sad to see it go. I guess if I kept everything I ever wanted to, they would have to do an episode of Hoarders about me.

My nephews once played with my Strawberry Shortcake dolls.  They were certain because all they were doing was dressing them and brushing their hair, they weren't really playing with them.  I told them that's pretty much what we do when we play with them.  Getting their hair, outfits and house set up is all the fun part!  They immediately dropped the dolls and went upstairs to play with trucks!

Hasbro Watchimals

Hasbro introduced Watchimals in the 80's.  Problem with these was that kids watches are junk, and the watch inside this was no exception.  Once the watch breaks, it's still neat to have a plush bracelet, but it really lost its cool factor.  The fun thing was that this was a way to sneak stuffed animals into school.

Mego Cher 1976 Desogner Collection Catalog

I don't know if these are all designed by Bob Mackie, but I know that at least some of them are.   At the bottom is a photo of Peasant Lady, an outfit I recently sold on ebay.  It states it was designed by Bob Mackie. 

I am glad to see that Sonny got some of his own fancy digs as well.  The Space Prince outfit is nice!

Pillow People Pamphlet Springs 1986

Pillow People were made by the Spring company in 1986.  I don't remember these toys at all.  I watched the commercials and they just don't ring a bell.  I have seen them on collector's sites, and assumed that we didn't have them in this region.  I have only even seen one. This guy, Big Footsteps. He's over 2 feet tall and super cute. He is currently available for sale on ebay for a mere $20.

Best of the 80's has a great Pillow People post.
