I remember getting a letter from my childhood penpal on black paper and thought it was the most amazing thing ever. I really do miss them and the black paper notebooks that they were made to write on so they'd show up better.
and I think everyone we knew then had the list of numbers posted on the wall by the phone. We had an extra long cord that we could take around the corner and into a small bathroom to shut the door for more privacy.
i had one of these as a kid, they were the best!Back when Polly actually fit in your pocket. And no one had to tell us, "Don't choke on Polly Pocket," because we weren't stupid enough to eat her. DAMN the were so great. I LOVED Polly Pocket!
