  4. Heather Robertson 12/07/2010 at 1:00 pm

    actually my fav toy was a large Tonka cement mixer – perhaps that’s why I grew up to be an engineer

  5. Tracey 12/07/2010 at 10:55 am

    My favorite toy was Holly Hobby Color Forms, the one that was the stand up old Victorian house that you could put a light behind it and it lit up the lights in the house!

  6. Lesli Chandler 12/07/2010 at 10:47 am

    I was all about the barbies! I would spend hours decorating showbox house for them!

  7. Amy W 12/07/2010 at 7:33 am

    My daughter would LOVE this Unicorn castle!! She is into all things princess and unicorns.

  10. Christina 12/06/2010 at 10:42 pm

    I loved playing with my brothers race car tracks and one year Santa finally brought me my own and it was way cooler than any my brothers ever got!! I was not a barbie or doll girl, but my daughter is and would DIE if she got this unicorn castle!!! 🙂

  11. Amy Slack 12/06/2010 at 9:57 pm

    I liked playing with my miniature Strawberry Shortcake dolls. I loved how they all had different scents.

  12. Teresa Chamberlain 12/06/2010 at 9:27 pm

  18. Kim Chance 12/06/2010 at 3:30 pm

  30. KDo 12/06/2010 at 11:15 am

    When I was a little girl my favorite toy was a soccer ball. I was such a tomboy growing up. It has been such a blessing to have two little girls who love nothing more than being a princess. I wouldn’t have it any other way!

  31. Wendy Thornell 12/06/2010 at 10:58 am

    Cabbage patch dolls! My mom got one for me the first year they came out (waited in line for hours at sears, lol).

  32. Lisa Pearson 12/06/2010 at 10:17 am

    I loved Barbies when I was a little girl. My daughter loves Barbies but loves playsets of any kind. And,of course, being a little girl, she is all about the princess!

  33. Yuki Olinger 12/06/2010 at 10:16 am

    This one is a piece of cake – The Easy Bake Oven was my favorite!

  34. Connie 12/06/2010 at 10:12 am

    My Snow White Princess sitting next to me would love a princess castle. She dresses up every day like snow white and she sits and sings all the princess songs to her dolls and animals. Every once in a while she will be Woody but she usually prefers the snow white dress. My favorite toy when I was a child was my skip it. Dang I was the best at that toy!!!

  35. Lyndie 12/06/2010 at 10:10 am

    My favorite was my Charmin Chatty doll. She had all kinds of clothes and a record that you put in her to have conversations. I still have her but her string broke and I lost all her clothes…

  36. Audrey Wolfrum 12/06/2010 at 10:09 am

    My favorite toy was Lego – I was a tomboy!

  37. KimD 12/06/2010 at 9:56 am

    Pretty sure it was my Cabbage Patch Kid. Still have it somewhere in my girls’ doll mess somewhere….

  38. Shannon Nelson 12/06/2010 at 9:55 am

    Dollhouse for sure!

  39. Amy 12/06/2010 at 9:35 am

    My Darcy doll (a Barbie competitor) had the most amazing hair that I could do beautiful up-dos! She lived in my Barbie 3-story townhouse with the elevator on a pull-string. Oh I wish I still had those for twin daughters!

  40. Jen S 12/06/2010 at 9:08 am

    My favorite toy growing up was a Barbie Swimming Pool (the little ones just big enough for a barbie doll). My dad spent hours putting it together and I spent hours playing with it!

  41. Brandon Gallop Rice 12/06/2010 at 8:58 am

    I loved my Teddy Ruxpin bear! Still have it 🙂
