I am Paul (aka Jemboy) and live in the North West of the UK.
I am a huge 30 something year old kid at heart and love my toy era of being a kid.
I started with my first doll from a Jumble sale (like a yard sale) at the age of 3. My Mum says I carried it around for a few years.
For my early kid days I loved any kind of doll for the concious boy (not wanting to be called any name) so played with Action Man, The Lone Ranger & Star Wars Figures.
In later years I got hooked into playing with Sindy with a few girls (and my sister) that didn't seem to mind me joning in. I started to collect them and my Grandma (who bought us gifts at the weekend) didn't bat an eyelid when I asked for a Sindy doll.
Me and my Sister collected Sindy in 82-84, Barbie 84-86 and then Jem in 86-88 (with a few Sindy's a Barbies in between) We had hundreds of them as well as all the parafinalia!
By 1989 I left school and suddenly "grew up" leaving our toys behind.
Our Mum gave all the dolls, houses, cars,pools, starstages etc to a local kids home in 1991 without us knowing (boo hoo)
In 2001 some 12 years later I looked up Jem on e-bay and won Stormer of TheMisfits for 99p, she was nude so I thought I would find her an outfit and fell back down the rabbit hole into doll-land. Now with most of my childhood collection back (Barbie, Sindy, Jem and a few others) I look for he dolls I missed back in the era. I have a personal liking for Steffie faced Barbies and the brief 1986 madeover Sindy.
