Do you have memories of receiving toys on Christmas morning that you HAD TO HAVE. Like, your life was not complete with out them? For me, each year I had to have the Holiday Barbie (I still have a good 10 years worth in their boxes, never touched). My mom would never allow me to play with them–saying that they would one day be a collectors item. I still have them, guess I should look on eBay and see what they are going for. Maybe I can cash them in to add to Ryder’s college fund? I also had to have the Tickle Me Elmo (do you guys remember that toy)? I was older… like in 5th grade. Why I wanted that toy is besides me–kind of baby, but what’s funny is that I still have it and it still works–perfect since Ryder loves Elmo’s high-pitched voice. I also loved my Easy Bake Oven. I went through 2 of them since brownies exploded in my first oven and ruined it. That was back in the day when the food cooked with a light bulb–taking 45 minutes to bake a bite-sized brownie. I don’t have that toy any more.
For Jon, he was all about Ninja Turtles. Like owned EVERYTHING known to man that had to do with Ninja Turtles. Sadly, he does not have one turtle item left to pass down to Ryder. Thankfully, my brother saved all his Ninja Turtle stuff, so Ryder is set with the old school version–not the crazy animated ones these days.
