What was the one toy that a friend had that you wished you had when you were little?
One of my friends had Donnie & Marie dolls. I thought they were so cool. Well, I thought Donnie was cool anyway. I’m not convinced that the Marie doll was cool.
Ever since I can remember, I have had a huge crush on Donnie Osmond. It’s totally ridiculous. I know.
I wished that I could have had a Donnie Osmond doll of my very own. The Donnie Osmond doll was one of the best things about going over to my friend’s house.
It seems like their clothes were not cool. They had bright purple and pink outfits. Matching, of course. Almost everything about Donnie and Marie matched. If I had my own Donnie Osmond doll, I would have given him some of my Ken doll’s hand-me-downs.
However, I didn’t really want a Marie doll. It’s probably because I didn’t want to be Marie. That would be weird. There would be no pretend kissing if I was Marie. I’d have to send her over to hang out with my Brooke Shields doll to share haircare tips. The Brooke Shields doll had the worst hair so maybe Marie could help her out.
I agree about Marie. I had a barbie doll (one only, I think), and Chrissy and Velvet dolls – you could pull their hair from the top of their heads to “make it grow.” I was crazy about those two.
I had a Chrissy doll too! 🙂 she had good hair.
Yes, I always wanted thick, lustrous hair like those two.
Me too! My Chrissy was a red-head. It was such a great color.
Talk about a blast from the past! Looking at the pictures, I absoutely remember them…in allllll of their pink and purple glory.
🙂 Pink & purple glory. Lol.
🙂 Whatever happened to Donnie and Marie Osmond? 🙂
I haven’t heard much about them lately. 🙂
My older sister had Donnie and Marie dolls. I recall the teeth being anatomically correct. That’s appropriate because whenever I think about Donnie and Marie I think about teeth — lots of shiny teeth coming at me. Okay, so maybe I was a bit scared of Donnie and Marie lol
