Toy Nostalgy (and a small correction)

Look what I found in my toy treasures during our visit in the wild wild west (Actually, Österö - as in "Eastern Island" - hah, never thought about that connection with Rapa Nui, funny!):

I count 1,2,3,4,5 members of the Barbie Family and two bonus kids (a crippled baby boy and punked Daisy - Biggie, you're guilty as well!). So whatever I said earlier about not having had five Barbies when I was a kid, I was lying. I did have them. Only that I got them after a lot of nagging and I was in my pre-teens when I got the first one (the pink business woman, did she influence me in my choice of studies later?!?) 

Ok, here is the real nostalgy trip: RESAN!!! (translated into "the trip"). Anyone remembers? It was when traveling in the Nordic countries was common and airplane scares. Check; there are only two routes of flying in the game. Nice that Helsinki is connected, but not to Stockholm, rather to a place closer to the Ryanair airport nowadays... Other funny thing was that the only option to get to Vasa from Tampere was by walking first to Pori and then take a bus. Talk about stone age!


And then this... What game is this?!?! It looks fun and suitable for the audience in our family - but my mother had only saved the board and the cards - no rules. So if anyone out there knows how to play the Paddington game, please leave me a comment below! We will need it by Easter next year - so no hurry.

I usually ask Matilda for the rules. She knows everything. Do you want to Skype with her?

Nice Barbie collection, btw. A bit surprising, somehow. Don't quite know why.

Let her have a look, to see if this game is also known in Singapore...

You mean I do not look like a Barbie girl?!?! The aces in my sleeve.
