Found a couple of these while looking for photos for my sister
Not sure if I got these or if they were just watching me open my presents
Man I loved that transformers hotcycle. That's my dog in the bottom corner, not a custom Grizzlor
Hey Bowl-Cut Barbarin and Pixel Dan, great pics!
Pixel Dan, I have that toy cash register in your 2nd pic. And my Disney eyes spot Black Cauldron and Jungle Book books in the lower left corner.
This isn't a holiday photo, but this is me with my original Good Luck Bear Care Bear. He was a birthday present from my aunt for my 8th birthday. I still have him to this day.

Christmas + 1982 + me + toy =
I have just gotten that big bunny as a christmas present (I'm the one with a red hat). I might seem to be little unexcited about the gift I've just got, but then, what can you expect from someone who is 4 months and 28 days old.
I'm not sure on which year this has been taken, but I think it's from 1988 or 89. Whenever that was, I really liked that spaceship.

Smile like you mean it.
some of you were the cool kids on the block huh? cool pics, i have a video of me when i was 5 explaining who my motu and rambo figures where. wish my sisters would give it back to me and quit showing it to the chicks i date and my friends! they all know its really a weak attempt to embarass me. they should dig out the video where my grandma was filming me as i slept, and in the middle of it i wet the bed and she goes ''o my, he just pee'd while laughing.........i would have sent it to america's funniest home video's myself but? hey dan, definatly dinosaurs, could be a future pop video? they were huge in my family, i still see em in the flea market or swap meets as some call them, that be a cool throw back, ppl dont really mention them at all, imagine all the secret doors in the back of the mind that gets opened when bringing up a small obscure toyline like that one, itll create a buzz im sure! or dino riders! awsome toys too!

This is the only one I've got.
I believe this was Xmas 1983 - and this was literally the first day I'd gotten my first action figures...I got Panthor for Xmas Eve, and then a TON of stuff the next morning!
