It’s Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas

I love this time of year…I get to play with my favorite toys!

Rudolph and Friends

Ryan loves my toys, too.


Before unschooling, I never would have let him play with these. Now I enjoy seeing him delight in playing with them, too.

hermey and the bumble

This picture perfectly describes my situation at home. Sometimes, I’m Hermey…sometimes I’m the Bumble… 🙂



  1. I love your pics! Buck had to school me on who was Bumble and who was Hermey though….shows my age I guess;)

  2. Marin! I can’t believe you didn’t know that! girl, you’d better tune into to CBS and watch the Rudolph special this year!

    Shows your age…HA! you’re funny…vewy, vewy funny….

  3. I love your toys!! I have never seen them before…where did you get them? Those are my favorite Christmas shows…

  4. Alison, they’re my favorite shows, too! Most of them were purchased at Target about 5 years ago, but you can find them on ebay. I don’t know of any stores carrying them which makes me sad because there were so many that I wasn’t able to afford to buy at the time!

    Check out ebay, looking up Rudolph and Friends. The name of the company that made them is Praying Mantis I think.

    Good luck! Come back and let me know if you get any!

  5. make that Playing Mantis and Memory Lane

  6. These are fantastic! We unintentionally ended up with a santa collection (gift from a friend, one that was my mom’s..) kept giving me santas. I would so prefer these guys! Have fun playing.

  7. Ooooh! I love Santas, too! We have one that my MIL gave us and he kind of looks evil, but I like him anyway. Rudolph, Santas, and Gingerbread people are my favorite holiday decorations.

    If there were a way to make my house look like a Gingerbread House, I would SO do it!

  8. Mmmm, Bumble’s disposition when he had his wretched toothache – that would be me on some days!
    But sometimes I’m Clarice, too.
    Still waiting for the pics to load….

  9. I love Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer! I have such fond childhood (and lets face it) grown up memories watching it!

  10. Steph, I can totally see you as Clarice! 🙂

    Sheri, I still enjoy it so much, too. The Heatmiser is another one I love! Oh how I wish I had a Heatmiser toy!

  11. I don’t like decorations much around here, but I might make an exception for these! I LOVE those old kids’ specials. My sister and I still make the little licking sound like YUUU-Kon Cornelius and then say, “Nuthin.” 🙂
