List of my 9 favourite childhood Christmas gifts

Proof that I was destined for weirdness
  1. 1.
    My little pony nursery. Obviously the door needed to be a bottle, how else would we know that baby horses lived there? Complete with human-sized wooden blocks and a rocker platform for toy horses, but the ponies were supposed to be alive so....
  2. 2.
    Electric train set. My dad had to build a wooden platform from pressboard to secure the track to make this remotely safe. I was still shocked repeatedly.
  3. 3.
    Remote control Ferrari Testarossa. I've never owned a car since. True story.
  4. 4.
    Charmkins! They smelled so good. Look at the sweet solarium attached. The house came with a special addition Blossom in her PJs and her cat in a basket and her bird hanging in a loop thingy. Behind the mirror was a storage area, helpful because there was so much additional crap needed to make them wearable. And you HAD to wear them to school ASAP
  5. 5.
    The original SBSC. I got a few one Christmas. They came with plastic animal side-kicks who smelled amazing. My sister gave me the green one when I spilt my head open and had to get stitches. I was like "she comes with a plastic parrot that smells like lime?! My wound is officially worth it!"
  6. 6.
    These little fuckers make me so happy. You can put your hands in their sleeves and squeeze them and they squeak. The log house came with a story book (something about surviving a thunder storm) and sweet faux-wooden furniture that seems so hipster to me right now.
  7. 7.
    My parents legit cleared out a cubby in the basement where I could get down with my nerdy self and these sweet chemicals. I was 10 - current ten year olds: eat your heart out. You'll never be able to risk mild chemical burns like I was.
  8. 8.
    Job Bluth would have been my friend when I was four. Note the stickers that you could stick on your "trunk" to announce the places your show had travelled to. This explains more than I would like to admit about my mistrust of advertising.
  9. 9.
    Look at this fucker! He's adorable and also terrifying. He is a puffalump - the unicorn version. I LOVED his rainbow hued horn.
