Obsessive Nostalgia Disorder Monday: Fisher Price School Days Play Desk

The magnets!  The little cards!  The chalk that wouldn't clean off!

I was an early reader.  For that, I credit my parents for reading scores of books to me, Sesame Street and The Electric Company, and my Fisher Price School Days Play Desk.

Alas, I know not what became of mine.  As with so many things, I forgot all mine until I saw one again years later.  I think it was on Etsy.

This one is in great shape.  It's missing a few magnets.  Oh, well.

  2. I loved the play desk I had as a child. We had the same one, though to be honest it was a hand me down toy from my older siblings and it was already missing most the its pieces by the time I came around five years later (as were most of the toys I played with as a child) I would love to find one of these... I bet my mom even still has the one I played with. I'll have to look

    1. Mine would have been missing the magnets and cards by the time I was through with it. I have a feeling it fell victim to our great childhood cat invasion. (Cats had kittens. Cats hated litter box.)

    1. Tee hee. I started a Strawberry Shortcake collection for the girls, because I was annoyed at the new cartoons they found on Netflix. The only doll I owned as a kid myself was Mint Tulip, but I always played with them at other people's houses.

      The desk doesn't come out as often as I'd like, but Little Sis dragged it out herself the day I took these pictures. "Help me read, Mommy." How could I resist?
