    "Andy Panda"

    He is a stuffed panda bear from an old story series.  I got him for my 5th birthday and he knows more about me than any living being.  (sure glad he can't talk)  He is now 49 years old.

    It brings back memories to think about it, but I really liked Lego, hot wheels and my Aurora race track.  Those toys kept me occupied for hours. I'm sure that made my parents happy.  lol

    I Loved My He Man Toys

    I was a tomboy and my favorite toys to play with were the He Man figurines. I also liked to play with gi joes and the teenage mutant ninja turtles toys.  I also liked my etcha sketch, glo worm, legos and those little micro machine cars.

    Little Toys

    I had a box full of tiny figurines, which I ever so creatively dubbed my 'Little Toys'. I would get lost in my own world for hours, talking through the toys, creating stories and lives for them. I liked playing with anything that couldn't talk back to me... even from a very young...
