I also had a silk jacket, a girl hood crush on Shaun Cassidy and really wanted a lite brite, which my mom thought was too much of a hassle with four children.

Oh, those Gunne Sax dresses!!!! I'm a handful of years older but wanted one, too!! Love the list and the memories. I remember wanting a Thumbalina and Little Kiddle!

I think I wanted/got most of the things on your lists, with the exceptions of the Woody Woodpecker nightgown and Stu.
