Just For Fun: Fashion Plates

Sorry for the lack of posts this week, my keyboard's spacebar broke & it took me a few days to hunt down a wired apple keyboard in Toronto. My computers to old for those fancy new wireless ones. I now have a sleek new keyboard that will no longer catch crumbs. I very excited about that.  Okay now to the fashion part of this post.... I'm just about to head out and thought I would bring you just a fun little post about Fashion Plates.  It's was a toy from the 70's/80's that let you "design" outfits. I had one myself and spent hours using it. Do any of you guys remember Fashion Plates? Or did i just totally date myself ;)?  I have to thank a twitter friend of mine for reminding me of this fabulous childhood toy. I have such fond memories of it.

I had this same set, and I might still have it in family's storage. I LOVED it.
