Sesame Street Week On PlaidStallions


I've been meaning to get to this for a long time now but the discovery of this photo of my fifth birthday cake (which was coconut died blue BTW) provided me some motivation. Like many of us, I was Sesame street obsessed as a kid, even my dog's name was Grover.



Christmas 1975 provided me with the one of the best playsets of all time, I not only still have it but I'm within five feet of it now.



Which leads us to today's cool Sesame Street entry, I saw this far too often but I'd wear this now....

YES!!! I'm a huuuuuuge fan of the Street!

I spent the around a year between 2-3 taking my Bert & Ernie dolls absolutely everywhere with me. They're still sitting in my bedroom today. They look a bit worse for wear, since my Mom threw them in the washing machine once. NOT a good idea for toys that have felt ears & faux fur hair. They kinda have really tight little afros now.

Looking forward to this week! And I'd wear that too...

P.S. - A friend bought me this shirt - http://www.snarfdog.com/grewup_410.gif - in the US. I'm still waiting for him to mail it to me!

I'm just barely older than Sesame Street, so it was a big deal for me as a kid as well. Don't remember having any SS toys, though. But I'd love to have one of those hats now! Go Grover!!

I remember that playset! It was a ton of fun. I loved the Oscar the Grouch trash can that came with it.

I'd soooo go for the Grover or Cookie Monster tuque and scarf!

It took me everything not to buy a Sesame Street wallet the other day. :P

Oh, and I'm jealous about the Sesame Street set. I believe I had it for a while (there was this toy library we used to go to) and somehow I kept one of Bert and Ernie's beds...

I agree, the Fisher Price Sesame Street stuff ranks up there with some of the best toys of all time!
