First some background on this; back in the late 1970s Playskool did some playsets with little people of familiar places at the time. One was a Holiday Inn, a Texaco station and a McDonalds. I had the McDonald's playset and I remember that a friend of the family had the Holiday Inn set. I'm trying to get my paws on the Holiday Inn set too...
So recently since I could afford it I bought the old McDonald's set. I wanted something to remind me of my childhood. That set was one of my favorite toys. I used it on my train sets and freeways as an off-freeway location for my toy cars. Yeah- I have a freeway obsession, always have. Back in the late 90s, my mom threw it out.
Through eBay I was able to reclaim my McDonald's even though it was not the one I had as a kid but the exact same set. During a recent property inspection to make sure everything was on the up and up; I made my new property manager smile when she saw it cause she said she had the same thing in the '80s!
So my question is this- has anyone ever reclaimed a peice of their childhood through the internet? I also want to know if you would try to retrive something you had as a kid through the internet. Something that meant a lot to you as my McDonald's set did to me when I was a kid.
