“I don’t know what it is about toys, but I love to collect them. Lately, I’ve been thinking about my Fisher Price Cash Register. I got this toy from “Santa” for Christmas when I was five years old. I still have it today (with all of the pen marks and colored-in, ripped decals), along with all the coins that came with it.

That same year, my sister Jan, who was three at the time, got the Tuneyvillle Train. The train drove my mother crazy because it was soooo loud! I found one of these trains the other day and then found three of the little records that go with it on Ebay. It was so exciting!Most of our toys were hand-me-downs, or were from the Salvation Army or Goodwill store. These two toys were extra special because they came new, “in the box” and were from “Santa.” I get warm fuzzy memories just thinking about those days.”
