Featured Etsian Seller~Galacticatt
If you have your own story with a favorite toy from your past, please leave a comment with a way for me to reach you and it will be posted along with a link to your store and blog!I've been super stoaked about Vintage toys lately, why? I'm not sure... Maybe, because my daughter is getting to the age where she likes her toys a bit more. It's a little exciting. But her toys are just so different than the ones I used to own... The 80's had very unique toys, lol.
I couldn't wait to show this one off in my feature next week, so here are the Moon Dreamers today!My sister had a couple of these, we played like they were our Barbie's kids. I don't remember what we named them, but I remember always thinking Sparky (the blonde girl) was a dork, haha. Though we didn't have any other small dolls (at the time) to be the kids... But they really are very cool dolls, with glow in the dark hair!
Galacticatt was kind enough to share her own story of how she started to collect these "far out" dolls, Thank you Galacticatt!
"I remember receiving Blinky and Ursa as a kid- shortly followed by Bitsy & Roary. I was fascinated with their glow-in the dark features, sweet little faces and pets they could ride. Despite my admiration, I was growing out of my dolls at the time, and didn't really play with them much. However, I never did want to get rid of them- they still make me smile. When I discovered ebay and Amazon in 2000, I realized I could get all of them, in new condition! I've been collecting ever since..."
