This is my first entry and (hopefully) more blogs about the year 1988. In 1988 one of the things I was probably most interested in was toys. Me being 4 years old at the time. I realized the list of toys I complied was massive. Too massive for one blog. So I’ll break them down into groups of 10. In no particular order. I decided to have some girl and some boy toys.

The thing about Fazz is that it is so 80s looking with those Memphis Group inspired patterns.

My neighbor had this toy and we used to make cakes in it. It never cooked them right they came out all battery and drippy. I think maybe she got the wrong wattage light bulb. Anyway that thing left me uninterested in light bulb toy ovens. Although I did get a crayon maker years later when I was like 20.

Always Sisters
