Did anyone else have this Fisher Price airport? Remember the yellow and red helicopter? The one you could put on the top of this airport and crank and the blades would spin on top of the copter?!
I have the world's WORST memory... but give me a tangible object of even a photo, and swooooosh the memories flood back! (that's another reason I take a million pictures... so I can remember!)
In fact, you know what else I just remembered? That garage. You know the one that had a top and a middle level? And that cool little gas pump at the bottom where you could put the spout in the whole in the cars? And the little people sat in the car and you could send it down a spiraling ramp?! And wait... wasnt' there also an elevator to get the cars to the top? My head is spinning!
I showed these to my dad and asked him if he remembered them. He said, "of course. But what I really remember is your organizing them over and over." And then I remembered again...
My dad built me a shelf that had little holes drilled in it just the size of the bottom of these Fisher Price people. That is where I "stored" them.
I was actually a very detail oriented, organized child. What in the world happened to me?!
Oh, yeah! Do you remember this merry go round? I think it came with the schoolhouse. And remember the little swing and slide?!
I love Things. I just LOVE them! I can remember this little girl with the pigtails like it was yesterday taht I was playing with them. Oh man...and look at that yellow cart! That was where we put the pretend suitcases and hooked them up behind a truck to take them around to the airplane. Yep. And now I am visualizing that white airplane! With the pull down stairs for my people to get inside!
