I had a gun, too, and hated dolls. I think I was the despair of my mother.

Loved my bike, and the vinyl swimming pool in the back yard.

I had a big toy truck I loved. My daughter now plays with it. I also had a fire truck and when you opened the doors there was a CB radio inside that actually worked. I had many hours of fun with that.

I used to bury my barbie dolls in the dirt in our back yard, with their feet sticking out and their little plastic shoes on! Then I would dig them up and drag them around the yard in the back of my Tonka dump truck!

My mother was convinced I was a boy in a girls body!!!

I loved playing with little trucks and cars in the dirt. I was pretty young then. I also loved my Barbie when I was about 9. But the thing I loved most was my transistor radio, which I secretly put under my pillow so I could keep listening all night. I think I got it when I was 8 or 9.

Barbie and Ken dolls! All the Ken's were renamed David. Until I met Paul all the guys I dated were named David or they were Virgos ( one was both). Paul's a Virgo but not a David. lol... don't pay attention to me. I'm going crazy.

My immediate response was my teddy bear. His name was Old Ted and he and I were inseparable. When I slept with him, I used his face as my pillow and, as a result, his nose became flat. When that happened, my daddy would clip the stitches on the center seam, put in more stuffing and sew it back up.

Had Old Ted for many years, when he was replaced with a newer teddy bear that looked almost like him. The new bear's name was New Ted. I have warm, happy feelings when I think of my dear little bears. They were fuzzy beige and rust-colored teddy bears with nice big "googly" eyes. I miss my bears.

Redkitty, I love the image you created of the Barbie dolls with their feet sticking out of the ground! I was a tomboy, too. Climbed trees, played marbles. My dad played catch with me, bought me a great bat and mitt. My parents gave me a Tiny Tears doll one year for Christmas and I traded her to my neighbor girl for a head of cabbage (they made me return the cabbage and retrieve the doll). Then they gave me a Little Lulu doll and I cut her hair off because I thought it would come back thicker and more curly (I think my sister sold me that one!) Dolls were just not a good investment for me....oh, and I loved Tinker Toys.

  • My brother's Hot Wheels Cars - we would spend hours playing with them in the dirt and on this tracks.
  • Legos - mostly built garages for the cars
  • The trees in our backyard - made great pirate ship masts, forts, etc.
  • The playhouse that my uncle and dad built my brother and I.
  • 2 pairs of firemen's structure boots and 2 adult raincoats - many a rainy day was spent playing in the rain. Mostly floating sticks and toys in the stream that ran through our 10 acres.
  • Our 3 dogs - they went everywhere my brother and I went.
  • A bag of old clothes that my mom got from a thrift store. It was great fun to dress up us and the dogs
  • The Little House on the Praire series of books - I have read them many times over and I still have them even if they are worn out and raggedy.
  • All the stuffed animals that my grandma made for me.
  • The pillow that Grandma made me one year for Easter. (I still have it)

I have to stop now because thinking about my grandma is making me sad.
