    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

    My Favourite Toy Was Barbie

    I grew up in the communist era (I'm from Romania) so we didn't have to much of a choice when it came to toys, or to anything. I had relatives in Germany and Austria so they would send me every year a new Barbie. I loved playing with them, making clothes for them, my  friends...

    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.

    Snoopy

    I was given a stuffed toy dog when I was very young. There are pictures of me dragging him around when I was 2 or 3 years old. I took him everywhere. I named him, "Snoopy", after the Peanuts cartoon dog. He kinda, sorta looks like Snoopy, but I don't think he was made to be...

    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...

    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.
