A Piece of My Past...

Raise your hand if you remember this. This was probably my very first electronic toy when I was growing up. It's called "Little Professor," and it's an electronic calculator that was put out by Texas Instruments. It has a copyright of 1976 on it. I used to play with this thing all the time. It's one of the memories from my childhood. When I found it today, I couldn't believe that it still worked!!! I was so excited!! What is it about our favorite childhood toys? They stir up such excitement and emotion. You find something like this, and you become an 8 year old elementary school girl all over again. I hope you enjoyed this trip down "memory lane". I may have to post some of my other childhood memories at another time like my Farah Fawcett doll and my Donnie and Marie Osmond dolls. All of a sudden I feel VERY OLD!!!

Just passing through - enjoyed your blog.

I have to say I don't recognize that toy. I don't think there were "electronic" toys when I was a kid! I remember a Barbie doll (we're about the same age)and LuLu doll. But mostly I remember playing outside, trike and dog and sandbox!
