SURPRISE SURPRISE PUPPY SURPRISE

Upon a conversation this evening about memorable Christmas gifts from Santa, I had many a special gift to remember.  Some of the remnants from Christmas past were sentimental and some were just plain awesome.

Topping the list at “just plain awesome” was definitely and absolutely my very own PUPPY SURPRISE!

If you were a little girl in the 90s, you just have to know what I’m talking about… I mean the commercial had to have everyone wanting one- am I right?

SURPRISE SURPRISE PUPPY SURPRISE!

It still fascinates me that you bought the puppy NOT KNOWING how many were inside.  The sweet jingle went:  “How many puppies are there inside?  There could be three or four or five!”

I can’t leave you with my own attempt at recreating the classic commercial– I just need you to see it for yourself:

Okay, I’m not going to lie, watching that blast from a Christmas past in my Christmas tree lit room with Shippmate and sleeping baby girl just made me feel some kind of warm and fuzzy inside.

Ah, Christmas. I love you.  2013 and 1991 alike.

So anyway, when I asked for my very own Puppy Surprise, naturally I just hoped and hoped and hoped and dreamed and dreamed and dreamed that MY puppy would have not three puppies, not four puppies, but the kind of FIVE I CAN’T BELIEVE MY EYES the commercial sang of.

And oh how I wish my 29 year old self could go back in time and watch my 7 year old self open my very own Puppy Surprise to find FIVE puppies!!!

FIVE!  THE FULL LITTER OF FIVE!  DREAM COME TRUE!

I am not kidding, but every once in awhile in life I will think back to that awesome surprise and STILL BE SO INCREDIBLY EXCITED THAT MY PUPPY SURPRISE HAD FIVE PUPPIES!

It was just the best.  I mean, if anyone wanted her Puppy Surprise to have five puppies, it was me.

So that just really started my life off right.  Clearly.

And now I really need my mom and dad to find my Puppy Surprise in all of her 5 puppy glory.  Please tell me we still have that champ, Mom and Dad.

This would be the perfect year for me to find her, as I spent most of my year harboring a baby– just one, but such a big one that left many a person trying to convince me I had my own kind of puppy surprise of multiples inside.

No, but truly– what a great gift.

Tell me someone else remembers this treasure from the 90s.

And please, leave in the comments how many puppies your Puppy Surprise had!

“There could be three or four or five!”

    Don’t ask your mama too many questions you might just ruin your own next surprise!? My very sentimental mama gave each of my girls one of my favorite dolls from my childhood for their first Christmas…. BEST gifts ever! I’m kind of disappointed the 10 year old me didn’t get this Puppy Surprise back in 1991! I feel slightly left out.
