FRIDAY FAVORITES -- Nostalgic Night!

Hey everyone! Sorry I'm like barely making the deadline on this Friday Favorite, but I worked all day and... yea. You know how it is. Anyways, my favorite this week is 'toys from my childhood'. Amanda from Mad Manis and Steph from Imperfectly Painted and I were just talking about toys and Amanda and I realized we had the same Polly Pocket Water Park and all three of us had the same fairy-themed star compact. *sigh*

And then Amanda went and found pictures. Omg. Y'all. The pictures! AHHH!!! Literally brought me back to childhood and I miss those toys SO much right now. You have no idea.

Here's the Fairy one. It came with a brunette Princess that I would pretend was me and 2 fairies with little iridescent fabric wings. This one was SO cool! The hot air balloon and fountain lit up.. and there were all these things that either moved up and down or spun.. it was awesome. Plus the gates in the front opened and closed!

And this is the Water Park one. I was ONLY allowed to play with this in the bathtub if I was going to use water with it because it was so messy! But you could fill it up and the little kids would float around the park! And the slide would pump water down it and shoot the kids down it into the water channel. SO MUCH FUN!

Y'all seriously have no idea how much I am missing my childhood right now. We've also discussed other favorites while I've been writing this: Tamagotchis, Beanie Babies, Pound Puppies, Easy Bake Ovens, Cabbage Patch Kids, etc.

What were your favorite toys as a kid? We've come to the consensus that toys these days totally aren't as cool as the ones we had.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. I miss my old toys :(. These were awesome!

  2. Oh my gosh! I had the waterpark! I had a few others as well. I love memories!

    I had a pico. You used it on the T.V to play games!

    &A puppy that when you talked to it & told it to come it would walk to you! I miss the old days! :(

  3. Ooo.. I don't remember the puppy that came to you.. But I had a puppy that came with a leash and it had legs that sorta moved? When you pulled the leash, it would toddle along behind you. It was named Tuggles. I loved that thing!

  4. OMG I KNOW! Toys these days just totally AREN'T the same. I remember spending HOURS going through and analyzing every toy in the Sears Holiday Wish book.. those things were massive!
