What was your favorite childhood toy?

My favorite toy as a child was my Rita Doll.  She was a 28 inch hard plastic walking doll.  She had long blond braids.  I remember asking Santa for it when I was about 4 years old.  Years later my mother told me that my dad went without lunch for weeks and saved his lunch money to buy me that doll.  I think it ran about $28.00 which was a lot of money back then.  One time her arm came out of the socket and we had to take her to a doll hospital.  I have no idea what ever happen to her.  Here is an ad for the doll I found on Internet.
