    I Know Mine!

    I had one for sure! It was this cool Mario hand held puzzle that has four little metallic balls in it. It was diamond shaped, see through, and and 3D. You had to twist and turn through this wacky maze in it, and pretend each little ball is one of the good Mario guys, and every...

    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...

    Had To Think About It

    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...

    I love Legos.  I have always loved Legos.  I will always love Legos.I still play with them when I am with my Youngest son.  And I would love to have a room where I can just build things with them and leave them like little statues.

    Match Box Cars

     The first love I ever had with toys were match box cars.  Back then I was about 5 or 6 and would watch the Dukes of Hazard on TV.  My mom bought me a plastic town map I would spend hours setting up my cars on and pretend I was telling a story with the...

    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.

    Horse Crazy

    A large part of my childhood play time was spent with my beloved Breyer brand horses. I cherished every single one I owned, and when birthdays and Christmas time rolled around, no one needed to ask what was at the top of my wish list. Many, many hours was spent...

    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...

    "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.
