Wish Book...

Remember the Sears Wish Book? My sister and I were always so excited when it arrived each year. I would spend hours looking through it deciding what I wanted Santa to bring me. I remember this cover...


I loved Barbies and while we had a lot of Barbie stuff I don't remember the gymnastics equipment.

I do remember all the camping gear and I remember being sooo excited when I got my first Malibu Barbie. Don't the Malibu's have darker tans now? Look at these prices!

As I got older I spent time not only looking at the toys but also the clothes. How groovy are these tops?


Last Sunday there was a toy insert from Kmart in our local paper and LM enjoyed looking through it. It reminded me of our days with the Sears Wish Book. I told her how much we enjoyed looking through it and eagerly waited for it each year. 'Sears has toys?' she asked me. Yes, they do. We only have a Sears appliance store here so she doesn't know about the big Sears stores and all that they carry. What a fun time we had looking through that book....

Yes, many hours were spent lost in the Sears catalog. Oh those simple pleasures of yesterday :0)
