We have a lot of cool toy that we can thank the 1960s for. Many of these you may still have in your house now! Check it out!
So many GREAT toys! So much FUN! Which do you have? Which did you enjoy when you were a kid?
And, just for a fun bonus, check out this TV ad for Chatty Cathy (and keep your eyes open for Marcia Brady):

ALL of these were in my house as a child – other than Chatty Cathy. (G. I. Joe was NOT mine – I was a GIRL after all 😉 – but I remember my brothers playing with them for sure. I LOVED my Light Bright (but I didn’t get one for my kids – such a spoilsport I am). Fun post!
I’m glad you enjoyed it, Joanne! I think my brother had a few GI Joes, but I had MANY Barbies. 🙂
Well, that was a blast from the past! I remember all of these! Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
Oh, I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Winnie!
I collected Barbie dolls as a child and have come to collect similar beauties as an adult.
A high school friend makes and preserves many dolls resembling Barbie and Ken. I have bought several and they really come to life with different costumes, outfits and regallia.
Between the four of us in my family we had all of these except the easy bake. Barbies and Lightbrite were my favorites.
