Let's see, so far we've reminisced about dittos, drive in theaters, lick-a-stick candy, five-and-dime stores, Donny Osmond, Dark Shadows, what have I missed?

Nowadays, even kindergartners get 100+ page, full color, school year books.

For me, it was not until high school that a yearbook was even offered. In jr. high, I think they had an 8"x12" class pics in black and white. But in elementary school, I don't remember any sort of photo op. I do remember that some older kids had AUTOGRAPH BOOKS. One nice teacher gave one to every kid in her fourth grade class, including me. That was everyone's favorite teacher. In years to come, a few posh kids showed up with autograph DOGS! That is what went thru' my mind today.

I know we have mentioned Troll Dolls a number of times, but I wanted to post this pic of one in the packaging because I remembered them being called "Wishniks" too.

Hmmm - I remember the dolls, but not the name "Wishniks". I wonder if it's a regional thing like Best Foods vs. Hellman's mayo is the same product in different parts of the country?

minustwo---I don't know if it was regional, or temporal. There is a whole timeline of troll copyrights. Wishniks were not the original troll dolls, but that is what was out there when I was of an age to want one. Look closely at the package. Isn't it funny how they have some troll hair sticking out...like touching it would seal the deal on a purchase!
