In continuation with my December ‘Fro theme of Christmas
Spectacle Spectacular, I bring to you a Christmas photo from around 1975 –ish.
This would be the year of the Barbie, which is funny because I was through and through a TOMBOY! Yet, I had every Barbie big item known to man, ummm, girl. But I also had a GI Joe!
Check out this little photo flashback with the Barbie Country Camper:
That there is a vintage toy today, in case you didn’t know. I do, because someone who slightly favors the brunette above has asked Santa for the exact same Country Camper.
Stay tuned to see if Santa pulls through. *wink*
Now, check out the lower portion of this photo, it’s the Barbie Friend Ship airplane:
Anyone else have either on of these during their childhood??
Unfortunately I have no photo of the 3 story Barbie dream house….remember the one with the string that pulled the elevator up and down??
I absolutely love looking at the old photos. You may not notice the other little things in the photos, but I remember being SO excited about the Smokey the Bear doll which “talked” when you pulled his
chain string. ”Only you can prevent forest fires.” I remember that milkshake maker, and how the shakes tasted powdery.
I have some GREAT childhood Christmas memories. How about you?
