Chrissy Doll

I didn't have this doll but several of my friends did. Chrissy had short hair but it would grow if you turned the knob on her back. To make her hair short again you would press a button on her belly. I wished I had a Chrissy doll!

Digital Derby

I think my younger brother had this. An electronic hand held game. The cars would drive down the road and you had to avoid them by turning the wheel. Fun stuff!

Miracle Wheel

I'm not sure what we called this toy, but the box says it is a "Miracle Wheel". I know we didn't call it that. With a flick of the wrist you could make the wheel travel along the wire frame and defy gravity. It was my brother's.

Carpet Sweeper

We had a carpet sweeper like this one only it was green. Mom would use it when she didn't want to haul out the vacuum cleaner......a 70's version of a hand-held vac I guess.

I distinctly remember these Valentines from the 70's. I was in elementary school and every Valentine's Day we would make a Valentine card holder for our desk (usually out of 2 paper plates or a shoe box). We would decorate it with cut out hearts and on Valentine's Day distribute Valentine cards to our classmates.

Hockey Cards and Hopscotch

I remember this reader from grade 4 I think it was. I believe it had either all Newfoundland or all Canadian stories it it.

Kitchen Garbage Can

We had a garbage can like this in our kitchen but ours was harvest gold to match the rest of the kitchen.
