Jacks was before my time, it was a game that my parents and grand parents enjoyed (I believe) But I've heard lots of stories about them!
My mom had a couple of Wrinkels the Dog puppet toys. I never realized what these were until I read the story below. One of them wasn't a puppet though. They were very cute :)
I never owned the 'pretty pretty princess' game, but my neighbor did. I loved collecting the jewlery to wear! ...I was also disappointed when I didn't win the 'pretties'. :(
We used to play jacks for hours! The boys played too! WE would play on the front porch and have competitions and our hands would be raw on the side or have splinters from the wooden porch! I was pretty good. BLOG

I used to love to play this board game that my dad got my sister and I one year as a Christmas gift. It was called Pretty Pretty Princess! You got to move your pieces around the board to land on spaces so you could wear the different pieces of jewelry. Whoever got to put on all their jewelry and the crown first won! I would always end up fighting with my sister over the crown though. It was plastic and a gray color and you decorated it with those cool puffy stickers that looked like stick on earrings! We ended up breaking it in half one time when fighting over it. We would also make my dad play it and make him wear the crown just to laugh at him! We still have it somewhere in the attic.
