What I Love Wednesday!!!

Once again I am linking up with Jamie at this kind of love for What I Love Wednesday!!! 

This week I am putting a different spin on WILW. I am gonna share some of what I loved
when I was a kid!!!

I have always been a reader and I just loved The Babysitter's Club. I would actually love to to go back and read the series all over again.

I LOVED Barbies and had way to many. The ones above were some of my favorites. They are all 80s Barbie's (since I grew up in the 80s). I remember my Mom got me the one with the hearts on it after I went to the DR to get a shot one day. Bribery worked everytime with me!

Cabbage Patch Kids!!! I had these 3, but mine like the one on the bottom was in much better shape. I remember really liking her because I could brush her hair and play with it.

Keep in mind, when I got my American Girl, Samantha, there were only 3 choices: Samantha, Kirsten, and Molly. My little sister got Molly and my friend had Kirsten. I can't believe what a company this has become and it looks so cool, but definitely a little pricey.

I loved the Care Bears, but only the ones from the 80s. The movies were great, I loved the little figurines, and those books were MY FAVORITE!!! I wish I still had them. A lot of these toys have been remade today, but the 80s versions were so much better. I caught a glimpse of a newer movie that had been made-so not the real Care Bears!!!

Judy Blume Books were favorites of mine-I read them all!!!

Beverly Cleary Books. Loved the Ramona books and the Ralph S Mouse Series.

Sweet Valley Twins Books

Sweet Valley High Books. You bet I can't wait for the new book Sweet Valley Confidential that was just released. Can't wait to read it!!!
There are so many things I LOVED from my childhood, but these were my favorites for sure. I really enjoyed reminiscing!!! Makes me want to be a kid again-well I really am just trapped in an adult's body!!!

I would love to see what you love!!! Hook up for What I Love Wednesday!!!

Happy Wednesday!!!
