prized holiday gifts from years past. They are:
--Shirley Temple doll, 1934
--Chatty Cathy doll, 1960
--G.I. Joe, 1964
--Star Wars action figures, 1977
--Cabbage Patch Kids, 1983
--Teddy Ruxpin, 1985
--Tickle Me Elmo, 1996
--Beanie Babies, 1996
--Nintendo Wii, 2006
--Zhu Zhu Pets, 2009
The only one that hit my era was Star Wars figures, and being a girl, even though I'd seen the movie, they were not a must-have for me.
What about you? Was there ever a pleasepleeeeaseplease PLEASE most-wanted gift on your list? Or did you break your neck trying to get any of these for your own child/niece/nephew/little sibling?
I remember the Cabbage Patch phenomenon, and thinking even then that those were some damn ugly dolls people were trampling each other for.
