This scrapbooking idea is to create a layout that celebrates your favorite childhood toys.
It’ll be a very fun layout especially if you still have your favorite toys tucked away somewhere in your house. Now is the time to dust them off a little, and take a few great shots of your toys if you still have them with you. If you don’t, I think it’s fairly easy these days to look up for some photos on the Internet.
For me, I used to adore The Strawberry Shortcake. Not the new, modern version, but the original classic version created in the 80s.
As a little girl, I found the line of characters fascinating and I was much drawn to the fruity or dessert-theme clothing designs for each character. The faces were so adorable and so were their fruity or dessert-theme named pets.
I still remember how the shop I used to visit as a child would be filled with the scents of these dolls. Even before I stepped into the shop, the scents were already so inviting!
So if I were to come across any of these classic The Strawberry Shortcake characters, it’ll naturally bring back memories of my childhood days. Of how I used to spend time browsing in the shop, looking at the dolls, figurines, and stuff, and how I used to admire these toys.
Several years ago, I found this Strawberry Shortcake figurine as shown above in the photo at a local toyshop that’s not in existence now. The figurine was scented when I first bought it, but now the scent has faded. Still, I’m more than happy to have a small piece of my favorite childhood toy character.
What about you? What’s your favorite childhood toy characters? We were all kids once, and now is the time to pay tribute to the toys that used to accompany you through your fantasy days of wonder, fun and play! Enjoy!
