Show and Tell Friday ~ Vintage Toys

Here are a couple of plush toys I had as a baby...
a soft yellow lovey...and Horace Horsecollar made by Gund Mfg. Co.

I have more childhood favorite toys I plan on posting in upcoming Show and Tell Friday, including some Little Kiddles, Barbie and Skipper and other favorites.

Be sure to check out more Show and Tell Friday posts at Kelli's place!

I just showed my g'daughters their mommy's very first teddy bear I still have...and he still squeeks! I was surprised at Walmart was the very same Barbie Doll Case I owned as a child. I sold mine at a yard sale a few years ago because it was really tattered. What memories it sparked!

I'll have to come back on Friday!

Enjoyed it..

I love....no, I WANT Horace!!! Just plain adorable. Great treasures of your youth.

My SnT is the 2nd of 3 installments of troll doll collection. Hope you can stop by. Have a glorious, wonderful Valentine's Day!!!

They are precious! They don't make them like Gund! We have several keepsakes that are made by Gund. None are as unique as yours. Thanks for sharing!

LDH, I love this post...My husband is 48 and I have two of his childhood toys like this, not as good of condition as yours are though., he carried those toys everywhere with him. We have them in a lock seal plastic bag to prevent the air from making them dry wrought any worse than they already are. I notice from your profile that you love having tea parties! Stop by and visit my place...you'll probably enjoy my tea collection (under label named as such~still many more to add) and I have many other tea lovers that visit. ~CC Catherine (hope to see you soon!) ;)

Warm wishes,
Susie

It's fun to have things from our childhood that we can pass on to other generations.

Not many people probably have toys they played with as babies. I think this is rather wonderful. We have a toy our first born played with...now I see how valuable they can be..=)

Kelli said...

Awww....such sweet toys! I love the baby on the silver tray!
