What I Hope to Find Under the Tree

Some of these I asked for as a child but didn't receive, others I did own and regret giving away. If I found any of these under the Christmas tree tomorrow though, I would be so, so stoked.

Polly Pocket. It's embarrassing how much I still want these.

Precious Places. I never had enough to make the whole neighborhood, and that kind of pissed me off. Also, using the magnetic key to move people/animals along the sidewalk kind of pissed me off.

Puppy Surprise. My original comment for this was going to be snarky, but now I'm remembering how much I loved these. And how could we not??

Magic Nursery Pet. This one turned out to be a real disappointment to me. You'd think by now I'd have learned that the element of surprise is a huge marketing gimmick and I shouldn't get sucked into buying dumb crap, but I still do it. And end up with the buyer's regret. 

Quints. Anything that came in multiples was also irresistible.

Barbie Hamburger Stand. Omg, it's a place that sells burgers and is shaped like a burger!! Why did I get rid of this??

Littlest Pet Shop. Had a ton of these, then stopped caring about them just in time for my dad to give them to my little sister. So maybe there's hope they're still in the family?

Goosebumps. All of mine got donated to a library book sale. Maybe they're currently owned by another 90s nostalgia hoarder..


  1. I love your blog!! I'm such a 90s geek it's untrue!! I've actually found myself gushing about how awesome it was "back in the day" haha keep it up hun, it's assisting me with my trips down memory lane haha

    1. Haha awesome! We're probably all too young to be this nostalgic, but whatever. The 90s ruled.

  2. Puppy Surprise ruined my life. Every single girl in school had one, and if you didn't get 5 puppies you were an outcast. Seriously the girls with 5 puppies were like the effing mafia.

    I had 3 puppies.

    1. I feel your pain, as I also had 3 puppies. And when I tried my luck at Kitty Surprise? 3 cats.

    2. I've been ebay-stalking all those toys all week.....

      Remember Treasure Rocks?

    3. Oh god.. I forgot about those, but the commercial brought it all back
