My Nostalgia- Some old keepsakes
So I’ve finally managed to sort through some of my old toys from my parent’s house, and have boxed up the real keepsakes for some generations to come. I can be ruthless when it comes to clearing out, but I could not find it in my heart to part with these…
I am a Disney girl at heart. And pre pixar, Aladdin was my all-time favourite Disney film growing up. There was something so magical about the setting and story. I loved Jasmine’s beauty. And the quirkiness of Abu.
My mum would often choose a certain theme for our Birthdays growing up. I remember the year she bought me all Aladdin presents, I was mad about this film and so thrilled with everything.
I remember opening this gold handbag and purse first, then each figure separately. Notice the real size Genie lamp, the amount of times this featured in made up games. A real keepsake.
Why is it kids collect badges? They always come attached to birthday cards for one. Here we have Sooty and co, I remember getting these at the Sooty shows we would go and see at the local theatre.
The o so whimsical Button Moon, and a few pony ones for the ride.
Me and my brother had loads of these. It’s funny I chose all the girly ones and just liked collecting them really. And not forgetting Tazos. Who didn’t collect these? I wish Walkers crisps had things like this in now. Must have totally been a 90s thing for sure.
These beauties. A whole box full before my eyes.
Polly Pockets from 1989-1996
I wanted these a few years ago, and nagged my parents to whereabouts they were. I was utterly convinced they had been thrown away because they never turned up. Turns out after all they were sitting pretty in a shoebox in the back of the garage. I suppose I should have known they wouldn’t have been chucked, just ‘misplaced’ rather.
I love the memories attached to these things, but equally love the detailing and stories to each one.
My all time favourite is this 1989 Christmas one. Really is so beautiful. Christmas is my favourite time of year also.
Polly Pocket is almost as big as Barbie for me. It’s that fantasy girly world again, that I just loved when I was a child. And secretly still adore now.
