Hi! I spent, maybe, three hours looking at this stuff last night. HOW did I not know that this website existed? http://www.wishbookweb.com/ has past Sears cataloges that were sent out from the 30s and on. I just...I...look, I like looking at things that I used to own as a child.
See the doll in the upper left-hand corner? Her name was Bopsy. She was the BEST doll ever. She didn't hang out with the Barbie crew. She hung out with wrestlers, He-Man villans, and the monsters from the Real Ghostbusters line. In fact, she was married to the wolfman. Seriously.

The dolls came with a ridiculous tape of "The Sensations" singing. I remember forcing my poor father to listen to THIS in his truck as we went through a carwash.
Seriously, it's fun to look at old stuff. Ok, I think it is. See? It's Retro! I'm still trying to be relevant! Any toys from your childhood that you miss?
