My McCall's Toy Sewing Machine

Is it just me, or are you a little taken aback that something from 1992 is considered "vintage"?


Acquired recently for a song, I found this sweet little thing on eBay.  I peruse the toy sewing machine offerings every once in awhile in the hopes of snagging a cute deal.  Plus I was already on there looking for cheap comic book backer boards to wrangle some more fabric (it's starting to get unruly again and between fabric and ribbons I used my previous stash up completely).

I had to jockey a few things around on top of my shelf to make room for her up there, but I'm liking where this is going.

In a few months, my birthday will be completely overshadowed by Little Miss' birthday and the birth of my 3rd child (yowza with the timing there, Skooks) . . . but if'n someone wanted to remember to get something fun for me at that time, toy sewing machines are always welcome!  ;)

Any kids' toys you're still in love with now that you're all grown up?  I'm not gonna lie . . . I get a kick out of watching Little Miss play with My Little Ponies.  So much so that this little bit of yesteryear also made its way into my eBay shopping cart a few weeks ago:

C'mon . . . you remember!

Pardon me . . . I think my age is showing.

If I had money, I would totally buy you this, because it's the coolest thing I've ever seen:
