The other day, I was growing through my old stuff at my parents house, I came across a bin of old toys. I found a few porcelain dolls, but mostly, it was horse toys. The memories came rushing back. I pulled out each Breyer one by one. The smell is what hit me first. Do you know that Breyer smell? It's like plasticy Breyer-y goodness. Even my old 1980's models still smelled that way. Most of my breyers were scratched up, a few had missing limbs - including poor Man o' War. I thought for a moment of selling them on E-bay, but in the end, I carefully laid them back into their shoe box graves and slid them back into the closet from whence they came. I opened another box and discovered my Fashion Star Fillies and a few beat up old My Little Ponies. Those girls had seen better days! Their hair was a mess and they just looked very.....well, loved I guess would be the word. My plan is to move them to my house, but after all that digging and rifling through items, I was hungry. My mom knows that some of those boxes are still sitting there on that basement floor, waiting, waiting, waiting for me to return.
What were some of the toys you enjoyed growing up? Were you a horse crazed Tom boy or more of an inside girly girl?
I think that though I loved playing outside most of the time, I still got girly from time to time. I love Madonna and once in a while I broke out my Barbies and played with them. Overall, I was mostly Tom Boy with a little bit priss mixed in for good measure.
Fashion Star Fillies - I had the bottom left horse and the top right - Huge FYI on that one ;).
