    "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.

    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.

    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...
