I bought this doll a little while ago - she's from the 50's I think and has her original clothing.
My 2 boys' thought it was hilarious that she didn't have pants on?? - typical boys! I did chuckle to myself as I sat brushing her hair thinking about how I will have to learn how to make dolly clothes.
Over Easter my mum gave me back my old suitcase which I've always thought about and didn't realise my parents still had it. Not a huge suitcase but one I used to take to school when I was 5 - always with a clean hankie in and I always remember putting my cardigan in it too. I was so pleased when I saw it, and just how I remembered it.
Over the past few years I've been recollecting Enid Blyton books, Ladybird books etc. Whilst out and about last week I saw a little wooden shelf which was ideal for housing and displaying some of the Ladybird books - I think it must have been made for them.
I also spotted this
another game from my childhood - of course I had to buy it.
It's funny how many of us are drawn to childhood toys and books - I wonder if future generations will too?
Have a lovely weekend.
