I didn't know how to title this  LOL

but the "favorite toy as a child" post got me to thinking...

was their a toy, pet, an article of clothing, etc. that you wanted as a child but never got?

I had a great childhood - I really did but there are two things that I remember wanting as a child but I never did get....

DH said he always wanted one also but didn't get it.  I had "regular" big wheels and bikes but I always wanted a Green Machine           lol

a friend also had Baby Alive and I wanted one but never did get one...I had dolls- I had many dolls but I loved going to her house so I could play with her Baby Alive   (that doll has been around forever)

 I pretty much got what I wanted when I was little. I was an only child and they spoiled me. I appreciate everything I got though. I was pretty happy with the Barbie's. I sat and played with them all day. I don't remember off the top of my head if I missed out on something in particular.....

1 mom liked this

rolling on floorThis question reminds me of something funny, for several years in a row I asked for a double decker racetrack and didn't get it, then after a couple years of asking, one year my sister and I opened a gift for both of us and it was a double decker race track and to everyone's shock, I burst into tears and ran out of the room. When my mom came to check on me and asked "Honey you asked for that for a few years in a row, you don't like it?" I said "Yes I love it but I feel embarassed that our company is going to think its too boyish" (I liked being a girly girl so was worried what the guests would think of me for wanting a race track. LOL She assured me they all thought it was for girls or boys and looked fun so I then I went downstairs and really enjoyed it hahaha such a silly kid

There were two.  When I was about 5, I asked for a stuffed reindeer.  I finally got one when I was 25.  I had mentioned it to my now ex SIL, so she got one for me.  I just about cried when I opened it.  :)

When I was 9 or 10, I asked for Midnight (Barbie's black horse).  I got Dallas (her palomino) instead.  I was happy that I got one of the horses, but I really really wanted midnight.  My mother said she looked everywhere and couldn't find one.  She looked every Christmas after that, for years...with no luck.  I finally bought one from someone, off of EBay, several years ago.  Funny thing is, I didn't care about Barbie...I just wanted the horse.  LOL
