Monday Memories

Did you ever play with these?
Colorforms were one of my most favorite toys ever! I have no idea why but something about the new plastic smell, peeling the pictures off the black, slick sheet they came on and placing them on the little scene gave me all kinds of thrills. This provided hours of entertainment. Today a child might look at the colorform board and ask, but what does it do? That was the beauty. It didn't DO anything, it made my imagination do all the work. I created the story, the dialogue and took it wherever I wanted it to go. How many games can you say that about nowadays?

I had an awesome Mickey Mouse one. I got my kids a Dora one once, but it was small and they were bored with it.

Oh my gosh I forgot about those! I love colorforms! I think my kids would actually love them too. Thanks for reminding me!
