Bacon’s Show and Tell – Blast from the Past

30 Jun

Welcome to the first series of Bacon’s Show and Tell!  Thank you so very much for participating today.  And thank you to Christina for suggesting I put together a Blast from the Past Show and Tell.   Remember to link your blogs to this one so we can all share.  Today we are highlighting that one special toy and/or your first toy that you had as a child.



Here is mom’s first toy ever!  She got it when she was a baby.  Isn’t it cute?  I told Fozzie mom had something from long, LONG ago that she looks at today and reminds us of our sweet friend Fozzie.  🙂 ❤

Mom had this toy as a baby and even chewed one of the ears off one time – snorts.  That’s my mom.  Teething on a kangaroo – snorts.  Thank goodness it went to the toy doctor and Dr Nana was able to fix it right back to where it was originally.

Mom has this toy in the workout room here at the Hotel Thompson.  She sees it every day when she walks the treadmill… AKA the monster as I like to call it.  I hope you enjoyed mom’s first toy my friends!

      Those are awesome my friends!! I loved them. They brought memories for my mom too – especially the Cabbage Patch Kid. You don’t want to know what mom did to hers as a child – snorts/shivers. Thanks for participating! XOXO – Bacon

      Hi Fozziemum! Cousin Bacon has me standing in for him this morning – isn’t it cool that his Mom wrestled with roos way back when? We couldn’t post about my Mom’s fave toy today – somewhere along the line all her old stuff has fallen by the wayside (kind of like her body has….hahahaha).

    It’s great to have someting what was “born” with you! And your momma’s roo is super cute! My first thought was “Fozziemum” too lol! My mom had a pony what she got as she was a baby. Sadly a bad doggy ate it as he found it on the attic…

    • onespoiledcat

      06/30/2014 at 7:27 am

      Hi Easy……it’s me – Bacon’s Cousin – babysitting his blog this morning for him….! I just read your blog and laughed myself silly. Seems your Mom got away with some major fun in her youth…..As for Bacon’s Mom’s roo – pretty cute isn’t he? OOPS – I mean isn’t SHE!

    • PigLove

      07/01/2014 at 9:17 am

      A doggy ate it in the attic? Oh no! Snorts. Mommy loves that roo. It has great memories for her. XOXO – Bacon

        like mom’s pony… her dad brought it to the hospital as he visited her the first time….( he said: uhoh! she looks like an ole grampy, is that normal?)

      Hi Madi!! Sammy here – sitting in for Bacon while he gets his piggy physical this morning! We didn’t pawticipate ourselves because all my old toys are GONE and Mom’s turned to dust years ago since she’s older than the dinosaurs…..HAHAHA Happy Monday!

    • PigLove

      07/01/2014 at 9:17 am

      There will definitely be a next one my friend. I’ll post about that one later – 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    Wow! That Kangaroo has been around for a long time! I’m glad your Mom takes care of her toys. And you! Going to the vet for check-ups is a big deal. Do you like going to the vet? I’ve joined in your Show and Tell and posted about my puppyhood toys. We had fun going down memory lane this weekend! Fun!

    • onespoiledcat

      06/30/2014 at 8:37 am

      I know my Cousin Bacon would want me to let you know how much he appreciated you blogging about your fave toys for Show and Tell today! It’s fun to “remember when” isn’t it???? Bacon asked me to sit in for him this morning while he gets his check-up…….I’m sure his vet will say he’s FIT AS A FIDDLE (oops….I mean pig).

      07/01/2014 at 9:23 am

      Mom saves everything – you wouldn’t believe some of the things she kept from her childhood. Thanks so much for participating in my Bacon’s Show and Tell today! I saw your toys – awesome like you! XOXO – Bacon

    Hey Sammy & Bacon this has been a fun blog post!
    Never had a “roo here. Maybe they were not packaged for America or Canada…as we don’t have Roos in our countries.
    I hope Bacon’s physical goes well.
