I loved coloring books! I could color the clothes whatever I wanted to, or I could make the sky blue or cloudy. When I was in high school, my club drew numbers and had gag gifts for Christmas. I drew my number and opened my gift. It was a brand new box of 64 crayons and an alphabet coloring book. I was tickled!
The Fischer Price playsets used to be wonderful too. I had the little schoolhouse and it was so wonderful. I taught school all day long. A friend had the barn set and we herded cows all day. We weren't worried about gender roles or any such thing then. We just played and had a fine time.
