Lets remember what we asked Santa for as kids. Our ages will show.....:-)

I remember one year all I wanted was a TV set for the Doll House.
They missed the point completely and got a new doll house. I don't remember much about it but I'm sure if it was on antiques roadshow we'd ooh & ah that it was a 50's classic. I'm not even sure if there was a tv in it.
I'm just young enough that TV was a given and I couldn't imagine that there was a time without it. {in a large urban area}.

One year I wanted this Big, Fancy, 5 foot Camel I saw at the stuffed animal display at May Company (or one of those). That was what I was asking Grandma for. I got this little camel that looked like it was covered with terrycloth, must have been about a foot & a half at the biggest. Again, I thought they missed the point. But I'll always remember that was 1960, an election year, because my sister got an elephant but *I* got the *better* animal cos it was closer to a donkey!
