Throw Back Thursday - Wonderful Vintage for Great Memories

For this throw-back Thursday, I thought I would go searching for some great vintage items that brings me great memories.
I'm a big kid at heart, and you can read about my vintage Fisher Price collection here, but I felt in the mood to look for other games today.

Who remembers this? The Mystery Date Game.  I loved it, but somehow I always ended up with Poindexter.  I spent many hours with my girlfriends dreaming about the time we would be old enough to have a "real" date.  hahaha.  I've seen updated reproductions but I found this original 1965 game on Ebay.
Now for fun, I found the commercial for this game.

How about the Spirograph?  I loved sitting there for hours just going round and round making cool shapes.  And those little tacks you used to hold the main ring in place were great to hold in your palm and then stick your brother in the arm or leg.  Of course, I never did that. :0)

And this last toy was my very favorite doll and best friend growing up.  Mattel's Chatty Cathy. We didn't have much when I was little, and most everything I did have was a hand-me-down, so I knew my mom and dad really scraped money together to get me this doll when it was new.  Man, I wish I still had her.

Check out her commercial.

If you would like to purchase any of these items, just click on the link.

So, what was your favorite toy when you were a child?

Be blessed,
