My Childhood Christmas List

15 Dec

This time of year I am always asked by my parents to “make a list” of things I want for Christmas. They still do this. And as I get older, I find it harder and harder to think of things that I want or need to put on that list. Why is that?? When I was little, I remember me and my sister would make these extremely long lists of things we wanted Santa to bring us. And we always got most of it, too! (Thanks mom and dad – I realize now that I’m older how spoiled we were as children.) I guess as I get older it’s harder for me to make Christmas lists because Christmas has become more to me than just presents.

So, I was thinking recently about some of my most memorable childhood Christmas presents and couldn’t help but take a long, much-needed stroll down memory lane. Back when things were much simpler and the toys and music were way cooler than what kids have now. Here are some of my favorite things I got for Christmas from childhood:

She-Ra Castle

NKOTB Step By Step VHS

Talking Alf Doll


A Caboodles

The Fireball Island Game

Simon Says

Cabbage Patch Doll

Pogo Ball

One of the following tapes:

Oh childhood, how I miss you! And those are just a few of the things I remember getting. What are some of your favorite things you got for Christmas when you were little?

Happy Holidays!

    Oh my gosh… I forgot about Caboodles!! I was so obsessed with my hot pink sparkly one circa 1993! And lets face it – they were educationa, teaching girls around the world that organization can be en vogue.

    Fabulous list!

      I saw a Caboodles in Target the other day and almost fell out! Apparently they are making a comeback. Lucky us! I am seriously considering buying one…

    Oh, Mandy….Those were the good old days. We remember all of these but it sure is nice to revisit those precious times.I can still see you and Angela dancing to the video in front of the TV. Getting up early on Christmas morning, setting up the video camera and spending all morning opening presents while we all ate sausage pin-wheels…
