    my best birthday present

[Back] [Add your memory]

I remember having a kitchen set for - I think it was -my 6th or 7th birthday. I had a party in the house and I remember saying " everybody who wants to play with it line up behind me"!!!!! It had a little plastic cooked chicken in the oven and taps on the sink. Posh,eh?!! Debbie Roberts, Abergele, North Wales

A proper typewriter, having had one that you turned a dial to a letter and thumped the bar on the bottom to get it to print. It was costly for my dad cause he rushed out of his dinner hour to buy it for me in his Morris Minor and got booked for speeding. Jean J, Wigan, Lancs
