Birthday Gifties

I got a whole bunch of cool stuff for my birthday...(The Easy Bake Oven for instance).
  I also got this vintage 1964 Mary Poppins Board game!  The game is fairly basic.. roll the dice and move along the board. It's the graphics and layout that make this game really Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
You start off at number 17 Cherry Tree Lane and then proceed to Bert's sidewalk chalk drawings, next a tea party on the ceiling and the horse races.  Then off to a fox hunt and kite flying.  At the end of the game there is a cardboard spinner carousel wheel.  If you are the first to reach it and spin your player to his appropriate spot then you win the game!

I also got a super cute 1951 (there is tag on the underside from the factory with a date!) formica table. My favorite thing about it is the grey wood grain-like pattern on the table top.  It is a bit on the narrow side (with the leaf in place it is 4 ft by 2.5 ft.)  so maybe it was intended as a breakfast table.  However, it is going to be perfect to use a desk and addition sewing/craft space.
I also got 3 Mayberry/ Andy Grifftith cookbooks with episode inspired recipes from my mom!
Can't wait to try some of them out!

So there are the highlights of my Easy Bake Oven Birthday party.
Time to clean up the wrapping paper and the sprinkles all over the floor now!

Happy belated! I'm so jealous of your Mary Poppins game. Have you seen Saving Mr. Banks about making Mary Poppins into a movie? I think you'd enjoy it.

Thanks! I have seen Saving Mr. Banks and LOVED it! It was so wonderful I cried...several times.
