Hi everyone! I hope your Monday is going well! I’m off from work today so I’m excited! I need to finish Christmas shopping. I hope I finish it all today! Uh, then comes the wrapping! Day 11 asks what your favorite childhood Christmas gift was. I had more than one favorite Christmas gift as a child so I’m going to include a few of them. I recently did a post about one of my favorite Christmases and gifts back in 1986. This is mostly a list of toys I received in the 90’s. Like most kids, I always asked Santa for toys. Kids rarely wanted clothes! Getting clothes meant you weren’t behaving throughout the year. What were your favorite gifts as a child?
One of my all-time favorite gifts me and my sister received from Santa around 1991 or 1992 was a Sega Genesis. I asked for a Nintendo but I wasn’t complaining. My favorite game was Sonic the Hedgehog. It was included with the game console. Me and my sister played the thing for hours after we finished our homework and chores. I hated when my parents punished me because they didn’t let me play Sega.
Another favorite gift was the Maxie City House. Maxie tried competing with Barbie. I don’t think that went very well because I never saw her again after the early 90’s. I wonder if my mom still has this because it’s selling for $100 on eBay right now.
Sometime in the early 90’s (I want to say 1990?) me and my sister received an Easy Bake Oven from Santa. It was always fun baking tiny cakes and brownies for ourselves. We didn’t really fight over this one either. The Sega was a different story.
Me and my sister both received our very own Furby. I don’t remember the exact year when these came out. Now that I think about it, the thing was kind of scary! I remember my Furby waking me up in the middle of the night because it was hungry! It kind of reminds me of The Gremlins.
Last but not least, a Giga Pet! I remember owning a dog and chicken. I made sure I was always on schedule to feed it and take it for a walk. I don’t know if it’s good or not but all of these toys can still be found on eBay today!
