But Never Got

Christ­mas is over and, al­though you’ re likely mourn­ing the de­signer heels Santa didn’ t bring, it’ s the by gone child­hood toys we’ re hark­ing back to…

Look (UK) - - LOOK BEAUTY -

Kids don’t have any sense of per­spec­tive. The world isn’t go­ing to end if the new Baby Born isn’t there on Christ­mas morn­ing, but it sure as hell seems like it. Here are the gifts the Look team al­ways wanted as kids, but never got. Boo-hoo.

Max­ine eggen­berger, Fash­ion news editor: Ta­m­agotchi

‘My mum never gave in to fads and when she did she’d get me the knock-off ver­sion. By then, no­body was even play­ing with them. Yeah, cheers for that, Mum.’

Anna Duff, Dig­i­tal writer: A Bar­bie Con­vert­ible

‘I did ev­ery­thing to try to re-cre­ate Bab’s pink four-wheel ride (and by ev­ery­thing, I mean ice cream tubs and all). Of course, this didn’t re­ally cut it with the cool kids…’

Han­nah Banks-walker, Deputy Fash­ion news editor: Baby All Gone

‘You put the spoon in her mouth and the cher­ries dis­ap­peared. Mag­i­cal! But she never ma­te­ri­alised.’

Gilly Fer­gu­son, editor: Mr Frosty

‘A sort of DIY Slush Pup­pie maker, but way bet­ter be­cause he wore a hat and a natty lit­tle scarf! I vaguely re­mem­ber you pulled a lever on his back to crush ice. My friend had one; I didn’t. I’m still pretty gutted about it, ac­tu­ally.’

Me­gan Pen­fold, Ju­nior De­signer: Dis­ney Princess Ariel ‘This’ll prob­a­bly make me sound like a spoilt brat, but it wasn’t of­ten I didn’t get what I wanted and my whole world came crash­ing down.’
