    I remember vividly when I was a child my parents bought me the big yellow teapot and the red and yellow school boot....
    anyone else remember these???

    I just looked online and found a website called vintage toys of the 80's- the 2nd hand yellow teapot is being priced at £60 (SECOND HAND)
    Iwas considering getting it for my little boy.

    I use to pull them along everywhere with me... I loved them.
    What about the chicken pox doll??? My sister and I had one. I totally forget its name but it was a boy and if you wiped his body with a warm cloth his chicken pox vanished.

    Anyone remember the viewmaster, you put the little negitive thing in the top and looked through it to see the pictures, there was a little clicker at the side that changed the picture. I loved that, and what about clackers lol
