Childhood Toys Project - This was fun! I only have one childhood toy. But, this isn't the actual castle I had. While it's missing the flag that stood tall about proud, and made a very fun sound when you pulled it, it is from Fisher Price from 1974 and in decent shape. My SIL and I found it on our annual drive through her neighborhood in on spring clean-up day. I screeched to a halt and said, "I've got to have that!" My brother and I would play with this for hours. We would drop everything we could find down the dungeon drop at the top of the castle. Many toys would endure their fate for days and months on end in that little gated jail. We would also hide anything that would fit behind the secret staircase. My mom still has our original castle back and home, and it's held strong through the ages of it's knights and queens, to Barbies, Strawberry Shortcakes, and Spiderman figures.
This was fun to photograph, and also fun to make look a little erie and scary. Great project!
