Favorite Holiday Gifts when You were a Kid?

Did you have that one special gift as a kid that still gives you goosebumps thinking about it as an adult? I had three distinct memories:

1. When I got the Atari 2600 with 16 games. Not sure how my parents did it, but Im sure they were broke for quite some time, back in the day! I remember it was all wrapped in gold Tom and Jerry Christmas wrapping paper!

2. The Barbie Townhouse. It had a yellow elevator that could be pulled up and down with a string, and the townhouse had three floors with all the furniature! Gawd, I played with that all day!

3. When I was about 5 or 6, I got a Holly Hobby wooden desk and bench. The desk opened up on top and was slanted. Inside was all kinds of writing paper, crayons, and coloring books.

Isn't it funny how we remember stuff like this? LOL

  • I had to have a firetruck every year. Not really sure why but each year I asked for one every year. I think the last one I got was when I was 13 or 14.
