I'm Vintage!

After I posted about the Nifty Notebook last week, it made me stop and think about the good old days.

Here is a Nifty Notebook...

This is how you put in your paper...


I always wanted one of these babies but now they go for quite a bit on EBAY...so they are still too expensive.:)

Fizzies were a popular drink when I was a child. My mother bought Kool Aid but how I wanted Fizzies. You dropped a tablet into a glass of water and it fizzed and bubbled. Word on the street was that Fizzies really did not taste as good as Kool Aid so it eventually FIZZLED.

When I got this for Christmas one year, I was on cloud nine. Every young girl wanted a Mystery Date game. Now days I am sure it would be frowned upon for stereotyping.  You can have your own mystery date game for $84 if you purchase it on EBAY.

I was never a big Beatles fan...more  of a MONKEEs girl myself but I do remember a classmate bringing this lunch box to school back in the mid 60s. This lunch box is listed for $800 on EBAY.

So I guess I am a Vintage Lady these days...all my dreams can be purchased on EBAY!!

The only one of the above I recall is the Beatles lunch box!! Never saw that notebook, never heard of Fizzies or the Dating Game!! We begged our Mother to buy Kool Aid and then none of us liked it, same with Spaghetti O's. We thought it was going to be great and when she finally caved we thought it tasted like horrible mush. Do you remember Twister? I got that in 8th grade and was thrilled to get it. Nice trip down memory lane!

I do remember the notebooks, just didn’t know the name of it. I so wanted the game, but Never got that and I had a Barbie lunchbox that I got as a leftover from someone. I should have kept it!!!

Interesting notebook; I have never seen one of those before. I didn't have the Dating Game, but did play it a few days at a friend's house. We didn't have Kool Aid and never had Fizzies. Thanks for the trip down memory lane, Arlene!

I had one of those notebooks in elementary school. I can still remember how fizzies tasted. They were really awful, but we loved to watch them dissolve in the water. I remember the lunch box and Mystery Date too, but never had either one. I had a black vinyl Barbie lunch box as I recall. Thanks for the good memories!

Call me Vintage too!

I am vintage too, and proud to say that! LOL My original Barbie doll is worth over $2,000 today. Too bad it got passed down to not one, but TWO younger sisters and is long gone. It really is amazing to see what brings big money these days (and the things we THOUGHT would bring money are worth nothing - like Beanie Babies!).

I love vintage things too Arlene but only the lunch box rings a bell. I often wonder what my Cinderella watch is worth. RJ

I had one of those Nifty Notebooks but I am sure it is long "gone with the wind."

Fizzies! My mom used to put them in our lunches and the other kids were jealous! You brought back some good memories today.

I love these old toys. I'd love to have a pair of clacker balls. It was the Osmonds for me — oh, how I loved Donny!

I don't remember those notebooks at all, but that Mystery Date game certainly has a familiar look! My favorite was the Barbie board game with the four possible dates: Ken, Tom, Bob and (eek!!) Poindexter :)
