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

- Malibu Barbie, Ken & Skipper (Note to self: The toilet is NOT a Barbie swimming pool.)
- EasyBake Oven (maker of the world's worst "cakes")
- Donny & Marie albums (which I now have on my MP3 player!)
- Lite Brite (useless after punching out the patterns and losing all the bulbs)
- Sonny & Cher (pre plastic surgery) dolls
- Charlie's Angels dolls (ok, I really only wanted Farrah, and Barbie ended up with her skateboard.)
- $6 Million Man and Bionic Woman dolls (you could count in seconds how long it took to lose the bionic "components.")
- (If this doesn't make you laugh, you weren't a kid in the '70s)...a "Benji" the dog transistor radio. (And my sister got the one for Benji's girlfriend, Tiffany!)

Note: I was just as happy with the items I "inherited" from older cousins: "Mod hair" Ken (tee hee), GI Joe (the guy Barbie REALLY wanted as compared to wimpy Ken).
