Opal and I were chatting about Childhood Memories and Toys and keepsakes...things that were sentimental in some way or memorable, even.
Today I thought I would do a quick post about one of the stuff animals I remember growing up! It was this lil guy! The Purple Pig Puffalump! Puffalumps were BIG in the mid 80's.
If you don't recall them...here's a little more more info about them...
They were created by Fisher-Price in 1986. They were made out of parachute material and 'stuffed' with poly-fill material. The WikiPedia Page is located HERE but I will tell you I remember MY Puffalump like it was yesterday. However, I think I treasured it a bit too much - sometimes using it as a pillow - and the Poly-Fill became quite lifeless - but it did last a long time...I remember having it up until about 1997 or 1998 - around the time I was in college. I wasn't much for "dolls" since I wasn't a "girly-girl" I was more of a "tomboy" but remember my sister collecting piles and piles of Barbies as well as Cabbage Patch Kids. I would sometimes get My Little Pony's but only the Unicorn ones since I have ALWAYS collected Unicorns. I think my mom sold them YEARS ago but might have to start looking for them online again. What were some of your favorites growing up!?
