1959 Barbie - she came with plastic hair and three wigs, and a really swank case.

There's some of those Barbies for sale on Ebay.

I have most of them except ... a long metal airplane. As the plane taxi'd a stewardess would go up and down the aisle. This was probably the mid 1960's. The other would be a pinball machine from the same time. It had this big baby on one of the dials. I was so upset when my grandparents tossed it.

The one I loved most was that Fisher Price blue and yellow house that you could open and close and had a handle so you could carry it.

Loved the little round people and the doorbell that really worked and the removable staircase.

Finally found one online and bought it! Now looking for the beds, tables, etc.

momo said...

Gator, I liked the red one best! She looked just like Endora from Bewitched with the permanent blue eye shadow and eyeliner.

So many that were thrown away by heartless adults :p

My aunt worked as Christmas help at a local department store. She bought and gifted me with one of the first original Barbie dolls ever made. Do you know how much that thing would be worth today? Time machine please I want my Barbie back.

Stieff Country Mouse House from FAO Schwarz. My favorite!!!! 💗 I’ve been trying to find one to buy on eBay for years, at a decent price.

Easy Bake Oven. I made little cakes and tiny cookies and my parents had to eat them or I would cry.

I had a Lost in Space Robot who's chest actually lit up! Second choice would be an Eagle toy I had from Space:1999

A set of cat eye marbles my older sister gave me.

My handmade Barbie doll clothes my mom made. I thought they were so pretty growing up. I'd love to see them now. And she even made a Barbie wedding gown like Princess Diana.

Original GI Joe!

As a child in the 1960s, I blew mine up with a fire cracker because my cousin said I was 'playing with a doll!'
Then, we blew his up!

(This was long before they were called an "Action Figure!"

La Morena said...

I still have it !! My Mrs Beasley talking doll !💖

Didn't have many toys, but I'd love my roller skates again.

Toys, none that I miss. I was never that into toys. I did have a great little sailboat which I got when I turned six, but by ten I had outgrown it and need something bigger and faster. I loved that little boat and nothing I’ve ever sailed since, or any toy, has ever brought me as much toy.

Em and 'im said...

As much joy, not toy. 😁

I can't choose between the weeble tree house with the lovely round weebles or a Shogun Warrior named Dragun. The shogun warrior was my brothers toy. I never owned one.

Unknown said...

My original Ariel barbie, complete with the plastic shell bra and fins.

Glitter said...

I had that 3 wig Barbie too back in the sixties. I think it was called Fashion Barbie or something like that. My older sisters cut the hair on the wigs. So cruel.

I also had an early sixties pony tail Barbie with the striped bathing suit.

mike m said...

My 1969 Sky Blue Schwinn Sting Ray. Loved that bike and then some a*hole stole it.

More Cowbell said...

1) Barbie Airplane -- So fun and had a distinct smell!
2) A Dawn doll -- She was small enough that you could make houses for her on book shelves or in a tide pool!

Sd Auntie said...

my little doll that was going bald and my purple schwinn bike.

TC said...

I had that Alien "action figure" It had that little plastic piece on its head that you could take off and the head would glow in the dark. It also had a lever in the back of the head that would make the inner set of jaws shoot out of its mouth,

Sadly I was 11 and had zero clue they would eventually be worth a small fortune, so of course I took it out of the box. Right away the socket holding the tail became stripped out and flopped around instead of staying in place, but I still loved it. On the other hand my mom freaking hated it, and few years later when she would go back and forth between Pentecostalism and Fundamentalism (trust me she went to the extremes in both) she took my Xenomorph, and all my LP's and cassettes, and comics and bonfired them all behind the garage.

The Fisher price queen plus the castle and everything it came w.

Em22 said...

A dream find for me! Lol!

Em22 said...

I had 3 of them once, my bf found them at a yard sale, and gave them to me to list on ebay but I didn't get a chance to before my camera died. He ended up listing them himself and sold for pretty good money! They weren't perfect, one EK was in great chape, but the stunt set was so so. Very cool either way, tho.

Em22 said...

Ahhh, I love the doorbell! That was one thing, and the schoolhouse, with the chalkboard cover that flipped up, oh and the barn with the door that Mooed when you open it... That my mom saved the set! She brought it out a few yrs ago, so my son could play with them! Lol! So glad she saved everything, the furniture, animals, people, cars! Lol!

Holly Hobby doll, Easy bake oven & Barbie dream house with the elevator.

Jenni Westside said...

My rocking horse.

TC said...

An honorably mention goes to the Evel Knievel action figure and bike. That was one of the toughest toys ever made, it stood up to anything. We even used to crank it up and launch Evel off of my garage roof - a good 15 foot drop and it never broke. It was one of the few toys that actually lived up to the claims in the advertising campaign.

I would love to have all of them, my family has great taste when it comes to buying toys for kids.

But to choose just one:

I had a doll named "Molly." She could play music, you wind her up in the back and the music you could hear the "Here Comes the Bride" song. I know that is not the name of the song but I can't speak German.
