    I must have been 7 or 8(a very long time ago) and I remember I wanted a road drill!:ashamed008: However I did get a nurses set which included a syringe, so I had to make do with that!!!

    I never ever got a road drill though!

    I was 16 and wanted a Britsh Speaking Red Haired Talking Stacey Barbie . My sister in law told my mom I was too old to play with Barbies . Afterwards, I bought one myself, that was broken and no longer spoke when you pulled her string . I put her on a doll stand in my bedroom . Eventually she made her way in with my other barbies . One day, after I got married, I asked Mom where my barbies were and was told she gave them too my niece . The same sister in laws daughter . I was so upset !
    Well, I told Jimminey this story several years back . Christmas 2008 , I opened a gift, only to find my British speaking red haired Stacey in her original swimsuit and she talks . Well, did I sob . She is once again on a doll stand in my bedroom .
    I think in my former life , I was a UKer . I really believe this .

    I can't think of anything I wanted that I didn't actually get.

    My favorite present was my Big Wheel. It was awesome!!

    Of course you can ask. I have absolutely no idea!!! I do seem to remember some roadworks going on, but that is all. I must have been a strange child.
