Spirograph! Ohhh I LOVED my Spirograph. I littered our house with these doodles and drove my mom crazy. She was so wonderful - she'd sit there for ages looking at each one of my pictures that I'd made, talking about it, admiring it and telling me how clever I was. God Bless her.
If you were born in 1958, you were too young to know your brother and sister were the first kids to play with the newest toy out that year - The Hula Hoop and it took the world by storm that first year and got even bigger the next year!
Velvet and Chrissie Doll with growing hair! You pushed on her belly button and pull out the hair, to make it long, then, you could make it short again by twisting a knob on her back. I loved playing with these dolls at my cousin's house-I had Chrissy, she had Velvet and I was always a twinge jealous cuz I liked hers better...(no idea why)
