Fashion Plate

I can't tell you what made this pop into my head the other day, but I am now TOTALLY excited!

I remembered my Fashion Plates set from AGES ago.



I'm sure even the "younger" crowd remembers the rehash of this toy that came out probably 20 years later but I don't think it was nearly as cool as the original set.

I know I've said I was not a fashion-y kid but I do remember using this for hours and hours creating new combinations.



So yeah, I tracked a set down on eBay, paid way too much for it and it will soon be mine! Guess what I will be doing all day long after I get this home to me.

I may even have to buy the expansion pack they made for this.

Now, if I could only get a great deal on the Weebles Haunted House and the Fisher Price farm...

I still have both the original set and the extension pack somewhere in storage!

I got them for Christmas as a 1970s kid and loved them. I wasn't a fashion aware kid (I was a tomboy)and still loved playing with it.

Sooo jealous! Those were so much fun and seeing those pictures sure brings back a ton of memories of "borrowing" my sister's Fashion Plates, flattening that black crayon down to the holder and coloring for hours on end.

I wish she still had it :(

aw jeez!~ I loved this bad boy as a kid. Good stuff. You'll forget about the money spent when you have it in your hands - don't you think? :)

I had one as a kid also and last year a neighbour was getting ready to move and found one that her daughter had so she gave it to my girls, I had it put away and took it out today, they loved it. They played with it for 2 hours and not a sound. It brought back memories!

The black crayon (so called) that came with it is wearing dow do anyone know where to get that piece too.

Thanks
