Rare Strawberry Shortcake Strawberryland Miniatures Special Set VIDEO

I found this at an estate sale recently!  I almost had to fight for it!!! I was searching estate sale ads and found a photo that had what I thought was this, in it.  I went to the sale 90 minutes early and there was already 50 people there.  By the time the sale started there was over 200 people in line.  I went running in, up the stairs and found this. Another girl came up and tried to grab it, but I already had my hand on it.  She yelled out, "Somebody already got it! Then she stormed out of the room and I never saw her again."  Sorry! Not Sorry!!  ;-)

Qbert Is Quite the Little Cuss! ~ 1983 Wards Catalog Pages

I always had a hard time playing Q-bert.  I always accidentally jumped off of the side right before I cleared the board.  And then, of course, you get the "#@?!*" .  Which we always assumed meant some kind of cussing.  That's probably
the reason we liked the game.  It just seemed a little sneaky and bad.

The Heart Family Album 1988!!!!

The Heart Family has been busy!  Camping, going to the playground, leaving the kids with Grandma and Grandpa while Mom and Dad go to Vegas.  Okay, maybe not, they probably just went to visit Barbie and Ken.





Looks like the girl is Grandma & Grandpa's favorite!









I'm guessing that Mom picked out the car.

So Many Fun Preschool Toys! ~ VIDEOS

So many fun preschool toys.  Most of us can't remember much about that early stage of life, but we remember the toys.  These fun toys that we play with for hours and hours. I remember playing with the Sesame Street record player at church in the nursery.  So, younger than 3.  They are still fun now!

Strawberry Shortcake Vintage 1992 THQ Berry Bake Shop Reissue ~ Toy-Addict

This is one of the neatest things that I have found lately.  It's a 1992 re-issue of the original Berry Bake Shop.  Kenner released this in 1982, and Toy Headquarters (THQ) released it in 1992.  The 1991-92 line of Strawberry Shortcake dolls was very limited and the dolls were very different but this is almost exactly the same as the original Bake Shop with just some sticker differences and some color differences.  In the video I link another video where I compare the vintage Berry Bake Shop to the brand new doll & oven set that they call the Berry Bake Shop.  Check that out too, so you can make your own comparisons.

Lady Lovely Locks Advertising Pamphlet & Video

By the time Lady Lovely Locks came around in 1986, I was already 10 and not looking to add any new types of dollies to my collection.  I did always think they were pretty and wished I had some of those Pixie Tails to put into my hair.

It's 70's Week at Toy-Addict!! ~ VIDEOS

I guess it's 70's week over at my You Tube channel.  
I didn't realize that I was making all 70's videos, until I put up the Andy Gibb
video.  I guess I've been in a Disco mood lately!


This advertising booklet is HUGE!  At 64 pages, it's triple the
size you usually find these!  


I loved Andy Gibb in the 80's.  One of my watchers reminded me that
he was once married to Victoria Principal, fro Dallas.



Cher had some great outfits!
Sonny's were just okay!  I wonder how many people actually bought
a Sonny Bono doll?


I didn't really watch this show.  I was more into The Bionic Woman!
I wish this thing also had that famous bionic sound effect.

Everyone Loves Garfield! ~ Wards 1983 Christmas Catalog


I remember having a garfield pajama, stuffed toys, and I saved up one year and bought myself a Garfield phone.  Remember those?  The ones where his
eyes opened and closed when you picked up the receiver?  It was a bad phone.  You could always hear the radio much louder than the caller.  My brother broke it like a month after I got it.  That was like 40 hours of babysitting money down the toilet.






The underwear picture is weird for a kids section.
