It’s hard to imagine Armitage as a young boy, but I think we can all agree that he must have been the cutest child ever.
I don’t doubt they must be a nude on a bearskin rug picture of him somewhere in the family album.
Oh, to get our hands on that 😉
It got me thinking of what toys could have been his favorite.
Here are a couple that were popular in the late 70s and 80s.
Perhaps Richard still has his childhood Teddy Bear tucked away somewhere in his house
My First Sony may have been his first experience of singing along to Madonna or Elton John
Maybe RA got his hands on Operation
I remember having a Pound Puppy
Maybe this Koosh Ball was waiting for RA under the Christmas Tree
Then again Rubik’s Cube was on Richard’s wish list
Maybe RA identified with HeMan and SheRa
Maybe little Richard was flexing his artistic muscle with Spirograph
Maybe Rich liked to snuggle up to his Care Bear
Perhaps Light Bright brightened up Richard’s day
Perhaps Hot Wheels was what made Little Richards heart aflutter
What do you think was Richard’s favorite childhood toy?
Here’s a: ‘ Hi, my name is Richard’ clip to get you in the mood to think 😉
