A MUM has finally fulfilled her childhood wishlist — and now owns all the toys she ever circled in the Argos catalogue.
Fiona Barnes, 41, has a complete collection of My Little Ponies, Care Bears and Sindy Dolls.

She also has a Mr Frosty iced drink maker and 1980s favourites such as an A La Carte Kitchen, Cheeky Mouse and Cool Cat House, Strawberry Shortcake doll and Palitoy Treehouse.
Her mum Linda, 67, had sold most of her childhood toys, including her cuddly Glo Worm, when she left home aged 18.
But retail assistant Fiona — who is now mum to Gracie, 12, and Henry, nine — said: “When I was pregnant with Gracie, I knew I wanted my old collection for her too. It just spiralled from there.
“Bit by bit, it went crazy and the collection would largely consist of toys that I loved when I was younger.”
Fiona, of Leicester, has spent £1,000 over 13 years collecting all the toys she used to covet — or had — as a child.
She picked up all of them second hand, trawling car boot sales with Linda.
Many are now stored at her mum’s house.
Fiona added: “I love it because it reminds me of my childhood.
“I would sit with the Argos catalogue and lust after one thing for Christmas.”
