Favorite toy? Hmm. I had a Barbie doll that I loved, and we all know Barbie is still alive and kicking. My mom made a gorgeous string-crochet wedding dress for her. I had it until someone vandalized our cabin in Indianola and took it. I'm sad about that. Barbie looked something like this picture.
I had a Chinese jump rope, which was fun.
I don't really remember any other toys. Our family played games and read books and played outdoors. If I think of another toy, I'll put it here.
