Our wonderful next door neighbor always gives Shaeler the nicest Christmas presents. I am amazed at her generosity for my daughter. This year, she gave Shaeler a doll that when the doll touches her eyes, ears, mouth etc. she will identify that body part and also identify it in Spanish.As I was clearing off Shaeler's bed to fold down her covers, this doll sweetly sits on top of her bed with 2 other choice stuffed animals that grace this holy spot on her pillow top.
I had a flashback to the dolls that I loved an adored as a child myself.
There was the My Child I named Roxanne!
The Strawberry Shortcake dolls who we always undressed and could never find their shoes.
Rainbow Brite and of course her horse!
I never owned a My Buddy or Kid Sister, but this song sure does stick in my head when I think of the dolls of my childhood.
Which then leads me to the staple dolls of the 1980's which would include the Teddy Ruxpin and the Cabbage Patch Dolls. I never owned an original CPK, because I was blessed to have my Cabbage Patch dolls made by my mother and grandmother. That in itself deserves it's own post. But what kid could resist this commercial and not want a Teddy Ruxpin, for crying out loud!
Which then reminds me of the creepy robot doll show I use to watch as a child.
Oh, C'mon!! You got to remember this little gem!
Yeah, I know I am weird!
What were some of your favorite dolls during your childhood?
