My 12 year old and I went to Bangor Comic & Toy Con this past weekend at the Cross Insurance Center and had so much fun! So many expressive, creative & talented people sharing what they love..it was really great.
Mabel up there is pretty freaking cute.
I can’t even imagine how long it would take to get this look.
Pinkie Pie..Mad was over the moon to find her & get a picture. The kid has found her tribe here.
She looks like she wants to run.
Seeing Mad there (cosplaying Mabel Pines) and seeing all of the cool collectibles and artwork got me thinking. What toys was I passionate about as a kid? Gah..there were so many! I thought you could take a stroll down memory lane with me (waaaaaaay back…I was born in ’69) and take a look at some of my favorites things from the 70’s. Ready?
Yes, I cut my own hair often.
Perfection. If ever a game gave people PTSD, this is it. For an already tightly-wound kid, this may not have been the best gift for me. Thanks, Santa! Photo Pinterest
Magic Window! This was so hippy-dippy and I loved it! I think my mother meant it to be a quiet toy for me….HAHAHAHAHAHA. NO SUCH THING. Photo Pinterest
I had the Snoopy nightgown..our mother was a heavy Sears catalog shopper. Photo Pinterest
I don’t know which of my grandmothers was into Avon, but we always had the perfume pins!
Phew…I could do this all day and not even scratch the surface. What were your favorite things growing up?
