52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History ~ Toys

Amy Coffin at We Tree has come up with another series. It is called 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History. This, the seventh week is dedicated to toys. As usual I am falling behind so this is my first contribution.

I love toys. They bring out the kid in me. You should see me in the antique stores  when I find a toy that I used to have, or even one that my brother and sister used to have.  (I can't believe my toys are in the antique store, that just aint right!) If I could, I would buy every one.

I have already talked about my favorite toy in the Advent calendar of Christmas Day 17 - My Grab Bag of Memories post, but there are other toys I can tell you about.

One of my favorite dolls was this Mattel Liddle Kiddles Lilly of the Valley Cologne Doll.


Ah -- I can smell her wonderful fragrance now. I know they don't make those anymore. I sure wish I still had mine. Would like to have one again, but not for $49!

Then there was the Kiddle Lockets:
I honestly can't remember for sure which one I had, but I think it was the one with the dark hair inside the green lined locket and purple stones.

I also had a baby grow a tooth doll. I got her for Christmas abound 1967 or so. It had short blond hair and slept in a little blue plastic crib.  She had two metal bars on the back of her heels that stuck to the crib when she sat up. Then you could feed her with a little plastic pink  spoon and she would grow a tooth.
I haven't been able to find a picture or reference to her anywhere. I bet she would be worth a pretty penny if I still had her. On second thought, maybe not - she would not have been in the best of condition. I guess that's probably why I don't have her anymore - duh.

  1. I had these too! I think I had the locket doll with the blonde ponytail hair and the red dress and the lavender one (middle row, far left). I loved these! I think I might have had the lily of the valley doll. Was there a lilac one? Maybe that one too! Thanks for the memories.
