I was more of a Holly Hobbie girl :)

In fact, it was the Holly Hobbie style that influenced the very first embroidery kit I ever did, when aged about 12 or 13 in about 1971/2. I bought a picture of a Hummel little boy which is a similar style. You can see him at:

Oh happy days :)

I think my favorite characters as a kid were those from a series called Rose Petal's Place. I remember being so excited when my mom bought me Rose Petal's Place wallpaper for my room--haha!

I was a Holly Hobby mom found a blanket with Holly Hobby on it at a yard sale and I used that same blanket until I was 16. Every time I see Holly Hobby things it makes me smile.

I first remember Howdy Doody and Captain Kangaroo. When I was 7 I got a Raggedy Ann doll that my mom made, and a Raggedy Ann book for Christmas. I still have that doll and book they are 54 years old.

My mom loved Raggedy Ann and Andy. (My nickname growing up was Andy). I loved Lemon Meringue, I still have her and Strawberry Shortcake. They are coming back now but they just aren't the same.

OOOHHHHHHH - I was absolutely a Raggedy Ann fan. I recently found a picture of me with my Raggedy Ann doll at the same as as my daughter right now (2 1/2 yo) and we look exactly the same!
Would love to win!

Well I had a Holly Hobbie lunch box, and a huge Raggedy Ann doll that my grandmother made for me. I still have the Raggedy Ann doll in a cedar chest. Like some of the others I also had a Rainbow Bright, that my younger daughter now plays with and some My Little Ponies. I had one of the original cabbage patch dolls and I still have her somewhere. I also have my first doll, which was a Fisher Price doll, that my Pop Pop gave me when I was born, my sister ripped her arm off years ago, but I sewed it back on.

Raggedy Ann and HH were really not my thing, I was more of a Hot Wheels guy!
