If you’ve read my memoir, you no doubt remember how much my sisters and I love Fisher Price Little People, or “kids” as we called them.
So here’ a blast from the past: my sister and I with our little people sitting at a very long table we made from blocks (and sitting on block benches, too). We were big Wizard of Oz fans, so I’m guessing it’s no surprise that “OZ” is spelled with two of the blocks. I also notice a few non-little people guests: some characters my mom ordered as promotion from Pop Tarts (Uncle Sam on the end is one), and looking near the left, those cute little gray and brown chipmunk-type creatures. I had forgotten about them!
Behind me, I also see my beloved Fisher Price Houseboat. I had lots of great times with that thing — it really floated in the bathtub, swimming pool, or wherever (remember the story about Toto drowning?).
I can’t help but think fondly about the good times we had creating stories for our little people to play out, and I hope today’s kids have the same opportunities.
What were some of your favorite childhood toys?
