Thanks for stopping by!
My name is Judy, welcome to my web site.
Grab yourself a cup of coffee, sit back, relax and enjoy your stay.

About my web site:
I was introduced to these marvelous toys when my first daughter was born, in 1980. When I met Strawberry Shortcake I was hooked. When my second daughter arrived in 1984, the Care Bears weren't far behind. With 2 girls growing up in the 80's, I learned a lot about the dolls of that era and fell in love with every one of them. I started collecting and selling my overflow at street faires and antique malls. Although Recycled Toys was conceived in the late 80's, it didn't make it's Internet debut until 1998 when I decided to take my business online. It's been a lot of fun meeting so many people from around the country with my same passion. As for my husband, he doesn't know a thing about the computer, but he sure is a big help getting the orders together and helping me on mailing days.

About me:
I was born and raised in Southern California. Grew up in the 60's, married in the 70's and became a mom in the 80's.
I love my family, Kibbles (my four-footed baby), a good cup of coffee, live theatre, traveling, laughing, music, collecting, and old movies.

Kibbles is my little "pound puppy" whom we almost lost, Christmas of '03.
