  • About my project supply lists:
    I only use and share products that I genuinely love. The product supply lists that accompany my projects are simply intended to provide a visual overview of what I've used in case you have the same items at home or would like to add them to your own shopping list. I link to several stores in the UK and US and as of July 1, 2017 I am an affiliate member of, Amazon UK, Ellen Hutson (store retiring), and (as of April 2022) The Greetery - this means that when you click on an affiliate link and go on to make a purchase I will receive a small percentage at no cost to you. Money raised through affiliate links will go straight towards my crafting fund. Finally, please note that any products marked "(r)" are retired and may no longer be available for sale online.

OMG Nat, I had ALL those toys except the Maximus. Glad you found out what it was! It does look very similar to major Morgan!


Cool. You had the same toys as me.


Cool. You had the same toys as me.


i recognize a bunch of those toys.... ones i had forgotten.. i *loved* my crayola station!!


I don't remeber having Dial-a-Design over here... just Spirograpgh. Same with Lights Alive. Ours was called Lite Brite. No wonder I kept getting those wrong. LOL


I have to say it was rather disappointing when I went to various stores looking for those paper dolls to see that the Crayola section doesn't have half the stuff I loved as a kid in it. No boxes of 48 crayons - shocking. Only a few chalks... they have been replaced by load of felt tip pens and crayons in plastic cases.... sigh.... But I was almost tempted to sniff the crayons they did have - I used to love the smell of Crayola crayons! hehe

Bus Stop

I had that big square Crayon Caddy - I loved it! I too insisted on them being in colour order, and I hated it when I had to tear any the paper off!
Have you seen this?
best wishes, Kristen


Yep Kristen, it was always tragic when it came to having to tear the wrapper to sharpen a crayon... there are days now when I check out the Crayola crayons and think how woefully poor the colour choice is for today's kids. I remember always getting the big packs and coveting the 72 crayon set! :oD
Will have to go check out that link! hehe


cool blog. you might like what i'm doing over at -- lots of fun children of the 80's nostalgery.


This Maximus thing. I had one, it was so damned cool.
