Cabbage Patch Kids! I had several and my brother, Matt, had some of the boy dolls. My favorite was my preemie baby though. It had the cutest belly button of all and an adorable, wrinkly, little butt. And my parents refused to let me collect Garbage Pail Kids cards. I did pout.
Rainbow Brite. I never did watch much of this cartoon and never owed any of the toys either. But I enjoyed going over to one particular friend's house and playing with her Rainbow Brite dolls.
(I took this pic of one page in a book I own)
Rose Petal Place. I just adored that cartoon and I wished and wished and wished for the dolls but never received any (never mind that I was swimming in all sorts of other toys anyways). Such pretty dolls.
This one's for my brother. Yeah, Matt. He, Kara, and myself are the only kids my parents had that truly enjoyed the awesome 80s. Anyways, Matt had a My Pet Monster. I secretly loved and coveted it. So ugly it's cute. I keep thinking that I'm going to get on Ebay and buy one for his birthday.
Matt and I watched "Ewoks The Battle for Endor" sooooooooooooo many times! I wanted to be Cindel and Wicket is just so stinkin' cute! Actually, I think we played Ewoks a lot and I was Cindel and Matt was Wicket. Kara was Teek. Kara acted like Teak without trying. Mom used to call her Teek. :) Actually, I still love this movie. Why don't I own it?
There are so many! I can't end without mentioning Punky Brewster, Moondreamers, The Cosby show, Popples, My Buddy, Alf, Thundercats, Care Bears, Macgyver (I watched it with my dad), Small Wonder, Lite Brite, Maple Town, The Dark Crystal, The Jetsons, Full House. Is this a walk down memory lane, or what?
One of these days I'll have to go through all my old pics and see what cute toys from the 80s made it into a photo. Wouldn't that be fun?
