I recently got a cute email that was entitled "If You Were A Little Girl In The 70's..". The email described many of the things you may have owned if you were a young female during that wonderful era. Here is one of the items:
I did not own these. Because I wasn't a little bit country or a little bit rock and roll. I was a little bit lesbian. Sure, I had the bike with the banana seat, the Magic 8 Ball, and the soundtrack from Grease. But my taste in dolls was a bit different. I owned this:
I also had Big Jim's buddy Big Josh. They would travel around my room in their Big Jim Camper, complete with sleeping bags and cooking utensils. I don't know if Big Jim and his friend were more gay or if I was. Oh well, at least I never lived in the closet next to a Magic 8 Ball.
Thanks for sharing.
But my absolute favorites were the Sunshine Family barbie-like dolls. They had cute Precious Moments faces and there was a Mom, a Dad and a baby.
I also had a Chatty Cathy doll (not a barbie type doll but a doll doll) but I cut her hair short and made her a Chatty Chuck.
Hmm... is that an early indicator? I was definitely NOT mean to be a hair stylist, I can tell you that much!
Oh! And what about the Archie Bunker nephew doll that had a little penis? I had one of those too but I couldn't let my mom know about THAT one.
Paper Roses.... Paper Roses...
Also Rat Patrol, all the guys, and a cool jeep with a gun mount, the robot from Lost in Space and Ben Cartwright and his horse. Yee-haw!
I posted a Haiku today... running off on my break again.
Hey OC. I laugh when I think about it now but those things were so cool at the time.
I agree Rita. The boys had toys that were way more fun. I'm lucky my parents didn't mind buying them for me.
Hi VelvetGinger - I've never heard of James & Josie West. We're they cowboys or cowboy/cowgirl?
Love the Paper Roses and the Chatty Chuck references Blondie. LOL. The Archie Bunker newphew doll and the Sunshine Family are new to me.
Hey Chewy - Glad to hear your posting again!
That was very clever of you to incorporate Barbie into the scene with Joe. Funny you got her without asking.
