I did this on another forum and it may have been done here before but aaaanyways...

My favourites were:

Plastic Boot (with real laces, people and a slide)
Girls's World (not my own I am sad to say)

DD was looking at KerPlunk today and I was very tempted for nostalgia

Tiny Tears was my first proper doll. Has her for years.

No skip the kerplunk, your memory obviously hasnt jogged the bit where you have to feed all those sticks through the holes at the beginning of the game. it was a releif when ours broke!

KerPlunk is different though! DS2 got it for his birthday andI was most disappointed that it wasn't the difficult-to-thread-sticks, turning-round version I remembered.

Space hoppers (the orange ones with smiley faces on)
Stylophone (as promoted by Rolf Harris!)

PS -very envious of anyone who had a Girls World -I always wanted one but was never allowed

tenalady, KerPlunk is "new easy to set up" KerPlunk now.

Also that hairdresser shop where the play doh came out of their heads as if hair was growing and you could cut it and style it!

My mum has one of those boots at her house and ds loved it - has a school room and playground with figures . She also has my original Tiny tears, Baby Alive and Kerplunk !

We also have newer versions of Kerplunk (the marbles still get everywhere) and Tiny Tears here !

Mouse trap
Screwball scramble
Etch a sketch
Major Morgon (sp?) there was a professor one too IIRC

Kerplunk must have only changed recently. DS1 got it for his birthday last year and it is the old, annoying sticks through the holes version.

LIZS Sat 20-May-06 20:12:07

I was thinking that StG - ours is the same as my original, as is Mousetrap

Angeliz Sat 20-May-06 20:13:17

This has been said before but what was that toy with lots of orange shapes you had to fit before the timer went?

TambaTheDragonSlayer Sat 20-May-06 20:13:43

I had a doll thing that 'walked' when you held its arms and cried. Cant remember what it was called, was quite big though. I loved it. My sister had one the same and we'd pretend they were twins.

Hated Kerplunk! Used to play Labrynthe on a Sunday evening when my dad was at home but he always cheated!

Mr Potato Head
Pippa dolls
Pelham Puppets

Northerner Sat 20-May-06 20:17:52

Angeliz Sat 20-May-06 20:18:56

SaintGeorge Sat 20-May-06 20:19:26

You can still get Perfection

Northerner Sat 20-May-06 20:19:36


SaintGeorge Sat 20-May-06 20:20:27

Tamba - I had those dolls. About 2ft tall.

I had a blonde and a brunette but I think I might have nicked one off my sis.

Angeliz Sat 20-May-06 20:20:31

Oh i'm going to get it then. It's that last fice seconds where you're shaking trying to get them all in.

Jacks (small metal ones)

God, jacks. I remember them. What the hell were you supposed to do with them? Don't think I quite understood!
