Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Remember the little Furby?
This one is a McDonald's Happy Meal toy
from 1998.
Jacob was organizing his closet 
and found this little guy.


Crackers were opened on
New Year's Eve.
Jacob received a mini screwdriver set,
Grampa received a mini tape measure,
Gramma received a toenail clipper,
and
I got the loot in the picture.....
The blue thingy is a tissue paper crown.

It can only go up from here....

for other pink saturday fun!

It's been a long time since I've thought about a Furby! What strange characters, and how strange that they were such a hit with children. Thanks for the memories. Have fun with your Whoopie Cushion! LOL. laurie

Hey Robyn, thanks for stopping by, I can always count on you!!
YES - remember those furbies, especially all the McD's Happy Meal toy ones. My friend's sons had to get them ALL and they entered them in a collection category at a fair and one a ribbon for them - it was a kids' competition - so those Furbies were good for something! ha, ha
Have a fun weekend and a Happy New Year!

I see you are one of the characters in The Bloggerville mystery! I really want to get started reading it ASAP. I'm really interested. It sounds cool and fun.

Hope you have a wonderful and blessed 09'.

I used to work for McDonald's many moons ago. When they first introduced "Customer Service Rep's". I loved my job so much and met some fantastic people. Ronald McDonald was my guy!!!

Furby!!! I think somewhere in this house is a box of McDonald toys. But maybe it is better not to go look.
