Rubik's Cube

The Rubik's Cube came out in the early 80's when I was a teenager. I think my brother had one, I know there was one around the house. I could never completely solve it, the best I did was 4 or 5 sides. One day my younger brother showed it to us, saying he had solved it. But then we figured out that he had removed the stickers and replaced them.......cheater!!

Yellow Tumblers

We had yellow tumblers like these to match our yellow (harvest gold to be exact) melamine dishes. Ah the 70's!

Folding Comb

My sister had a folding comb much like this one and I am sure we had a brush like that as well.

Toronto City Hall Puzzle

We had a jigsaw puzzle just like this one. We must have put it together hundreds of times.

Mushroom Lamp

I am not sure of the exact name of this type of lamp. Mushroom or tulip lamp maybe. My cousin who lived next door had one in her bedroom, I am not sure if it was pink or purple but I loved it and wanted one just like it.

Rook Card Game

I remember playing this game with my older brother and sisters but I don't remember any of the rules.
