Did you have a favorite toy growing up? Was is special because you just loved it or did it come from someone special in your life? How old were you....about
? Do you still have it?
This is going to rattle a few cobwebs but don't strain or stress over it at all! Just whatever you remember that brings back warm or happy memories. This one is hard for me because I wasn't "toy" kind of kid. I got Barbies and hated them...never told mom but they sat on a shelf until I gave them to a young cousin when I was our of high school. The one toy I remember wanting when I was probably around 5 or 6 was a tall doll I had seen in a store. She was nearly 3' tall, had beautiful red hair and her eyes even shut when you laid her back. It was like a miracle...those eye things. (This was around 1956 ya know...lol) She had a very feminine figure with a pinched waistline and curvy parts...not a baby doll but a real mature girl. Oh she was beautiful but I remember mother telling me that she was just too expensive. She was ironing some pillowcases when we had the discussion and I can remember it so well. We didn't have lots of money so I knew she was out of the question. But I did ask Santa to bring her to me. Even wrote a letter but didn't get my hopes up too much.
On Christmas morning when I came down the stairs there was my beautiful doll sitting under the tree!!
I was stunned, happy, amazed and so thankful that Santa knew what I wanted. She is probably the one toy I really enjoyed and today she sits in my living room with the other toy I loved...a homemade stove/oven with real drawers and doors. Dad made it when I was very young. Now the grandkids play with the doll and the oven. Her eyes still work but her hair....well, it's still red but I...um...sorta gave her a few haircuts when I was younger...lol
What toy(s) did you love when you were young? Feel free to share and talk about
them...I sure did and I didn't think I had anything to share on this topic.

If you ask what is the single most important key to longevity, I would have to say it is avoiding worry, stress and tension. And if you didn't ask me, I'd still have to say it.
