Toys gone by...

Childhood toys....



This was my father's from the 1920's....
my mom still has it....


This was one of my favorites... Charming Chatty!
I remember opening the box she was in on Christmas morning.
She was my last gift and I thought Santa had forgotten.

...and these paper dolls...
my sister Diane and I would play with them for hours!

Stay Cozy,
Carrie

So cute. How sweet to have memories in 'toy form' to look at and admire.

Fun! that reminds me, I have a toy to search for on the Internet! I saw it in the movie The help and i think I had it, too. It's a rubber elephant. Here I go! Bye! ♥

Cute memories! I never had a Chatty Cathy, or Charming Chatty, but I had a couple of favorite dolls. And oh....paper dolls?! Loved them! The only ones I remember in particular were The Lennon Sisters! :)
