Fashion Plates

Do you remember Fashion Plates? Those pink plates that had Barbie looking figures on them, and you could mix and match the outfits and then color them in?

I had totally forgotten about this awesome toy until I rummaged through the closet of Local Lily's Brandi Walsh. She showed them to me thinking I would get a kick out of it, and of course I had to sit down and color a bit.

I had forgotten how much I love to color and how AWESOME and simple the toys were back then. It seriously made me want to go out and buy some coloring books and just doodle for an hour. For me, it's one of those activities that totally relaxes my mind.

Does anyone else out there love to color or remember playing with Fashion Plates???
