Do you remember?  
Do you remember these Fisher Price roller skates? I just stumbled upon them online for some strange reason and it took me back to when I was a kid and I wanted to learn to roller skate (I never did mind you) but I remember these things and I always loved that they expanded to fit bigger children or just growing feet.

Now, while these helped many a child learn to roller skate, I was not one such child but that had more to do with fear and lack of support rather than a wonderful childhood "toy" that could have really been useful. I have no children but I'd want any kids of mine to have these too.

It is strange. Some of the best things from our childhood were labelled "Fisher Price."

LOL Yeah I talked about the record player here http://sireesanwar.livejournal.com/707021.html

I remember loving that record player but I never really remained enthralled with them.

See I remember playing with the skates but I never really learned.

I can rollerblade, but not skate. I tried once and felt very awkward....

Always wanted to learn.

I didn't have those but I remember my neighbour having them. :) I had a whole bunch of other Fisher Price toys - have you checked out Chapters lately? I've found they're re-releasing some of those toys like the barn and school and record player. Pretty pricey but they're for people like us to buy for our kids since we have good memories of those days. I bought one of the little record players at a garage sale for Tim when he was little, for all of 25 cents. Well worth it! Of course he always called the records CD's. *lol* Now even CD's are out of date - he just gets stuff straight from iTunes. What a world we live in!

Yep. I would have bought my kids a FP record player but I haven't had any yet... still it would be fun. I love seeing some of those old toys.

Seriously, I feel like the more modern conveniences leave little for memories of good times.
