Frogs everywhere

Do you remember these when you were a kid? I sure do. The straps were leather that would break off. The springs were exposed and if someone was on it and you got too close you'd get your finger pinched. Back in the good old days before lawsuits.
Grandson #2 turned 2 yrs old on December 27th. N was sick so we just had his party last night. The theme? Frogs. We had a blast with these. Poppers are cool!


And I finished these Saturday. These are my reknit Opal purple socks. One trip through the washer and dryer and they came out perfect. They are on my feet for a test walk. LOL.

I remember those horse things! You'd lean as far back as you could and then jump off and the thing would flip over.

The socks are very cute!

Wow, I'm not terribly old, but I remember having a horse with the springs and getting my fingers pinched. Of course, I also remember daring my little bro to put his fingers in the spring and pinching him.
