Toy Parade - Wrestling Buddies

This is one of the three Wrestling Buddies our son owned. He had Ultimate Warrior (pictured), Hulk Hogan and Macho Man Randy Savage. He and one of his friends had lots of fun making up wrestling matches with these toys.

Toy Parade - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Okay, I realize this is a  picture of their logo and not an actual toy. I couldn't really find any jpg images that did the toys justice. Not only did our son have the action figures, he had VHS tapes of the movies. He watched the cartoon. He had sheets, pillow cases and the comforter for his bed with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on them and one year for Halloween, he won the best costume prize when he dressed up as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (the one with the red eye band).

Toy Parade -WWF Game

Here is another game our son had and in fact, I still do in a closet. He was crazy about wrestling. We went to many matches. A lady I worked with brought him an older version of this game that her son had outgrown. Sadly, many of the men on the front of this game have passed away.

Toy Parade - Simon

I have to admit that I don't even remember how to play this game! It was a hot item at one time though.

Toy Parade - Game Boy

Can you believe that I actually forgot about Game Boy until I was searching for Nintendo pictures? Well, I did and our son had one and I play it!

Toy Parade - Guess Who?

This was a fun game that our son never tired of playing. I'm not certain this was the packing of his version of the game.

Toy Parade - Thunder, Thunder, Thunder, Thunder Cats!

So, once again, you can have an evil fighter without the villian so that's why I'm posting two pictures today. Our son LOVED this cartoon and actually has a DVD of them. I could keep most of the character's names straight on this cartoon.

Toy Parade - Who You Going To Call? GHOSTBUSTERS!

Not only were the movies fun (and cheesy!), they also had a cartoon. And really, who will EVER forget the theme song to the movie? The ghosts were colorful, ugly and gross....right up a boys alley! Well, except my favorite character from the movies and cartoon.....

Toy Parade - LEGOLAND

Our son had several Lego castle sets. I think they were actually built to 'specs' once, otherwise it was his own creations. The little horses to these sets were adorable. I KNOW, little boys don't want to hear that there toys are adorable!

Toy Parade - Transformers....Robots in Disguise!

I think this yellow car is the same one that our son had. It was a lot of fun. You pulled it back to 'start' the engine, let it go and when it bumped into the wall or furniture the button on the bumper transformed it into a robot. However, I had to admit that this mommy could never keep all the robots names straight!

Toy Parade - Pound Puppies

I couldn't find a good picture of the Pound Puppies that I remember our son having. He did have one that looked like these and also a spotted one.

Toy Parade - 'I HAVE THE POWER' or HeMan

Our son had several versions of the HeMan action figure. Of course, you can't have a good guy without a bad guy, right?

Toy Parade - Nintendo

This was actually a birthday not a Christmas gift for our son. He spent many hours playing Mario Brothers and Tetrus. I myself perfered Tetrus!

Toy Parade - Fisher Price Barn

Our son loved "Little People" when he was young. This was a Christmas gift from his grandparents. The silo opened up for storage as well as the barn door and loft door.

Toy Parade - My Pet Monster

This is My Pet Monster and was the result of merchandising a cartoon. I'm sure the idea behind this was to make monsters friendly so children would be scared. What do you think?

Toy Parade - Pizza Party

This is a fun matching game. I still have our son's and plan to play it with our granddaughters. What were some of you or your children's favorite games?

Toy Parade - Mr. Bell's Fixit Shop

This Little Golden book was a favorite of our son's and mine. I never tired of reading it and although I downloaded this picture from the internet, I still have the book and hope our granddaughters enjoy it too.

If you're not familiar with this book Mr. Bell can fix anything, but broken hearts....however, by the end of the book he can do that too because he fixes a little girl's dolly!

Toy Parade - Get Along Gang

Our son loved this cartoon. He'd wake up early on Saturdays to watch it!

Toy Parade - Day 3

This is how the Fisher Price Little People looked in the 1980's. Much smaller than today! This was a fun toy with a crank on the top that would bounce a figure across the top of the roof.

Toy Parade - Day Two

This was a fun toy box that was sold by toy party company. I can't remember the official name of the company, but people had in home parties. Most of the time the toys were outside of the toy box and our son was inside the toy box!

Toy Parade-Snuggle Bear!

Last year my toy parade in December was big hit on my blog, so I'm following up the fond memories of some of my toys with toys our son received.

These toys aren't 'antique' like mine were last year. They will be from 1980-1990's. Although my comments are monitored, feel free to leave one anytime.

Our son received this "Snuggle Bear" on his first Christmas. It was a send in offer from the fabric softener. Do products even do that anymore?
