52 Weeks of Genealogy - Week 2

 Week 2 asked ....What toys did you play with growing up?

What a fun question!When I was a kid, I had a very active imagination so I loved to play and luckily I had a brother and sister so I always had playmates!

My favorite toy by far was my Malibu Barbie and Barbie camper.  Although I found out years later that she really wasn't "Barbie" but rather her friend "Malibu Francie". Which I like her better!  Her bathing suit is way cooler than Barbie's (Barbie's was solid baby blue and Francie's is Hot Pink and Orange)

I still have her but she lost her hands many, many years ago in a tragic dog-chewing accident - haha!

Now my sister had "Malibu Ken" so of course Francie and Ken would go on dates together.  (Isn't he cute?)

Most of the time, though, Francie, Ken, Miss America Barbie, Skipper and Donny & Marie would go camping..... in my Barbie Country Camper. Man I loved my camper - especially the little pop out tent

Other favorite toys were Spirograph, Bonkers, Headache, Easy Bake Oven, Baby That-a-Way, Playdoh and so much more.  I still have most of these to this day!

Pin It!
