Monday was my Mom and sister Tracy's birthdays so Sunday we celebrated with lunch, cake and presents at Mom and Dad's. I asked Mom while we were there if she minded if I had a look through our toys that we grew up with and maybe take some of them to the day care. I wound up coming home with a load of good stuff! I brought the Fisher Price Little People school house, barn and village along with people, furniture, animals and vehicles. So awesome! I also came away with a big tub of Lego's and a set of Lincoln Logs.
Monday morning I cleaned everything when I got to work and set it all up on the kitchen table. When the kids got there they thought Miss Laurie's new toys were terrific and I quite agreed! I'm saving the Lego's and logs for later in the week when the weather won't be as good to be outside.
It's amazes me at the things that my mother has kept from when we were little. I'm almost afraid that I don't know the half of what she's still got. I did see my old Fonze sweatshirt in the attic yesterday!
As you can see, some of the stickers aren't stuck so swell anymore and have bubbled up due to storage and heat and such... not to mention they're forty years old! I found a dealer on ebay and bought and entire new set of decals for the village! I'm so excited about that too. Not all of them need to be replaced right away but when they do I will have extras ready to go!
HERE's a link to the listing.
