It seems wrong to me to call things from my own childhood “vintage,” but I suppose they are. Like a fine wine, right?
One of the most fun parts of going to Grandma’s house is the playroom. When Mom re-did the basement a couple of years ago, the guest room was converted to a playroom for her grandchildren. Anja talks about visiting the playroom almost as much as she talks about visiting Grandma, and when we’re there, she will drag anyone and everyone down there with her.
My mom saved almost every toy we ever owned. Here’s Markus checking out a TV.
And Anja playing with Little People. They were much littler in the 80s.
We don’t bother cleaning up much until we leave, since everything is off the shelves again within minutes of putting it back. 🙂
Did Elmo exist when we were little kids? I remember Grover and Telly much more distinctly. Anyway, I think I got this little Elmo doll when I was in high school.
