Ahh She-Ra was the best! I think I had every single one of those toys too! Can you believe Smurfs is back now too? So odd to have things come full circle again. If only She-Ra would come back....

iiii know! I love love loved She-Ra. I'm sure we would have been fast friends as kids :)

There's a link to the dvd boxed set of season 1 on another post I did about She-Ra. I've been indoctrinating my kids ever since I bought it!



OMG! I stumbled on your blog by accident looking for pics of garbage pail kids - I had forgotten all about sweet secrets and the hugga bunch. I was totally obsessed with both as a kid...and I had that exact Strawberry Shortcake lunchbox and remember fightening with my older brother to use his lightbright.

The memories you jus tbrought back!

Ha ha, I know! Just doing this post had my heart racing faster from the excitement of my memories. I love love loved my hug-a-bunch doll with her baby and the sweet secrets. I'm swooning again now!

Thanks for visiting. I'm glad you stumbled across my little corner of the blog-o-sphere :)


Very cool! I totally forgot about the Snoopy snocone machine I used to use until I stumbled on your blog! Thanks!

I think you can still buy them too - in case you want to re-live the awesomeness of the Snoopy Snow Cone machine :)

I am looking for the name of a doll. It had a firm body made of foam. With nylon for the face. They kind of looked like Ice Cream Dolls but they had a firm body, mine was in a sitting position. They had yarn hair. Mine was a boy with a cap and red cord overalls. You could get them musical too and their heads would tilt to the music. Any ideas?


Oh. My. Goodness. I played with so many of these toys as a kid. I had forgotten about some of them. Thanks for bringing back so many good memories!

What a wonderful tribute to the memories of our generation. Well done. It is something that connects all of us together, it is unifying - memories of the past. Such a warm & fuzzy feeling I get when I look at these things. They were what saved me from the yuckieness of growing up. They were my escape as a kid. I loved every minute of them all. Thank you for a well written, well pictured, walk down memory lane that still makes me feel safe. Wishing you a days of the soft sun upon your faces. Cheers to our genration!
God Bless the USA! God Bless you!
