Time for random Tuesday, and I got nothin'! Here is my perfect opportunity to write about anything I want, anything at all, and I got nothin'. Isn't that ironic? I'm usually a "Chatty Cathy," and here I am drawing a blank.
Wait! I got it! Chatty Cathy! Did you have that doll? It was only made from 1959 to 1965, the year I was born, but I never had one. I think my sister did, but she wasn't really into dolls. I was, though. I played with them until fifth grade, but I probably wouldn't have admitted it then. My favorite Christmas present that year was Baby Alive. I thought it was great fun to feed her and change her diaper. If I'd only known what it was really like!
Something else I liked to play with besides my baby dolls and Barbie dolls was paper dolls. Do you see a theme? I imagine younger people have no idea what paper dolls are. And in our high-tech world, who would play with them now? They were basically dolls made of heavy paper or lightweight cardboard-type material. The dolls had tabs on the bottom so they could stand up. You would punch outfits out of paper, which also had tabs so you could "dress" the dolls. I loved them!
It's also time for Coffee Chat at Ink Interrupted.
