Fashion Plates!

One of my favorite sites that I’m always prowling is called Apartment Therapy and they were talking about this UBER cool “toy” the other day…and it totally brought back memories for me. I spent  SO MANY hours playing with it, “drawing” and coloring outfits and imagining I was such an artist/designer!

Did anyone else have the “Fashion Plates” (toy) that I had in the 80’s growing up…?

    Thanks for reminding me!!! We were in the office just the other day looking up vintage (dear god, our childhoods are ‘vintage now’) toys we used to play with. I had totally forgotten about this one, but now I remember it perfectly….I’m emailing this to my sister immediately.

  10. I adored this toy!!!! I remember trying to find scraps of paper to use when I was little so I could make a few more designs.

  11. OH MY GOD! I totally had those too. So funny to see the design of the skirt (the pattern). It is funny how you totally forget about something like this and then when you see it – it brings back all these memories.
