Favorite 80's Toys

Hey everyone! It's Elizabeth from Sugarpetite here. I've got some fun vintage stuff currently available from our Etsy kiddo team members to show you today.
While I truly believe I was in my fashion prime during the 90's,

( By the way, I had my Blossom hat in three other colors including black- crushed velvet.)

my toys were from the 80s. And they were awesome. 
Let's begin our stroll down {my} memory lane.  

~ Oh, Rainbow Brite. I still love you.  There was something so magical about Baby Brite. I never had this doll, but I always wanted her.
 ~ My brothers and I had Follow That Bird!  recorded on a VHS tape, and we'd watch it over and over. I didn't know if Big Bird would ever make it back to Sesame Street- definitely a nail biter!

~ Jem. She truly is outrageous. This sticker book is super fun!

~ This next toy might have been more late 70's, but I played with my big brother's Little People (or Diddle-Diddles as we called them). My mom has a big bin of them at her house that we always drag out when we bring our kids over. This nursery set is in there. :)
~ We kept our viewmaster and reels in an old metal Popeye lunchbox. I love a toy that needs sunlight rather than batteries to work.
~ I remember getting this toy sewing machine for Christmas one year. It was so sweet!

One of the things I love about Etsy Vintage is that when I'm feeling nostalgic, I can find my childhood playthings and even take them home again.What was one of your favorite toys growing up?
