Today's "Anything Goes Saturday" scans are fun images of kids being kids! Like this first one, with two brothers, listening to their "It's a Small World" album while flipping through the full-color illustrated booklet - I had my own copy of that very same album, and listened to it so many times. The comforting narration by Winston Hibler was so great! Perhaps my love of that album is why the endless song from that attraction doesn't drive me crazy.
Notice the model of a Junkers Ju 87 (?) in the corner - my older brother used to build all kinds of plastic models of WWII airplanes (I did too, but I was lame at it), and they hung from our bedroom ceiling in eternal aerial combat.
Here's the cover of the album - how many of you had this one? Unfortunately I sold all of my Disneyland vinyl albums on eBay last year, otherwise I would have scanned the entire interior booklet.
Next up is this fun shot of two girls (sisters?) playing their Barbie dolls, along with their considerable collection of accoutrements - including a shotgun?! The girl in red is making Barbie and Ken (or whoever those dolls are) kiss - typical mushy girl stuff. Besides their impressive assortment of dresses, wigs, hats, and other cool stuff is Barbie's "dream car", introduced in 1962.
Here's a better look at one - it was an Austin-Healy 3000 MKI convertible roadster. There was a bubblegum-pink version, and an "orange-brown" version with a turquoise interior. That's a pretty sweet ride for a stewardess/dentist/fashion model/gymnast!
