Readers take a walk down memory lane...
"Suzanne, I loved your story about the Barbie car without a doll. My sister and I always wanted Play-Doh, but our mom said it was too messy. When I shared your story, it brought back memories, and laughs. Thank you." -- Lolita
"My sister and I always wanted a hula-hoop and a Chinese jump rope, but our Mom wouldn't buy us either one." -- Debra
"GI Joe (a hunk to date my Barbie!)" -- Amy
"I always wanted a real Care Bear. I loved Care Bears--I had the coloring book, checked out the story books from the library, and watched the cartoon, but never had one of the stuffed bears." -- Rashel
"The toy was a Chatty Cathy. You and the other readers bring back so many memories!" -- Linda
"Way back in the 50's, there was a doll advertised on TV (on the two black and white channels we could fuzzily receive if the wind wasn't blowing too hard). I believe her name was Tressie. There was a key that one could turn in her back and her hair would 'grow' from short to long and vice-versa. I wanted that doll SO badly! But, my dad had died, we were scraping by, and there certainly wasn't money for that doll." -- Barb
"Richie Rich comic books" -- Karen
"Microscope with prepared slides" -- Laurie
"Mrs. Beasley Doll" -- Michele
"My toy I never got was a Bionic Woman Doll." -- William
"A snow-cone maker" -- Marty
"The Thingmaker" --Leslie
"Cabbage Patch Kid" --Erica
