  • A big appliance box. Hours of fun. Decorated inside and out with markers. Cut out squares in the sides for windows and taped little pieces of cloth over them for curtains. Used old towels and rags for bedding. The making of the little house was as fun as the playing in it. After the house playing got old, I took everything out of it and used it like a tank- not sure how to describe it- rolled it around the basement floor by crawling in the inside - putting my hands on the side and pushing the side down and then moving my hands up and pushing down- to make the box move across the floor. It also became a cave, and a fort. Best toy ever.

  • I LOVED mystery date! I used to play this board game with my sister and our friends. I don't exactly remember how you moved around the board, but there was a door in the middle of it, and you would turn the little knob, and open it, and that would be your "date" for the evening. I do remember on the box there was a question~ Will your date be a dream or a dud?

  • Up until about the age of 5, my Baby Beans doll. After that, I lived in skates. My mom got me two sets of wheels - one set for basement/rink only and another set that were for outside. I could also spend hours with any board game, using the board and the pieces to make up a story. The more detailed the better - there was a game called Mystery Mansion with individual rooms you'd match up as you played. I could spend days designing and redesigning "dream houses" with that.

  • Playing with my 2 oldest brothers who are younger than I am (they were the oldest of my 4 brothers - no sisters).
    We really used our imaginations to play all sorts of games like house, cops & robbers, adventure seekers, hide-and-go-seek, anything and everything we could think of! We lived out in the country and only had a few close neighbors and I'm sure we were terrors to them with our antics and curiosity of all things, including things on their
    Gosh, those were incredibly fun days {sigh}.
