#WorldWatercolorGroup Favorite Childhood ToyPosted: August 2, 2016
#WorldWatercolorGroup Favorite Childhood Toy I had a moment today to think of a favorite childhood toy. I preferred the unusual. For a girl. I played cars with my older brother a lot. Lego was adored. In my day there were only red or white blocks. Now there is a multitude of sizes and shapes. Oh, I had Barbie dolls, Trolls, a Chatty Cathy doll, Jane West and her horse. I even sewed Barbie’s wardrobe for her. Cut the trolls hair and more then likely Chatty Cathy’s too. Only to learn it didn’t grow back. There were Lincoln logs too. A bike or two a trike and a wagon tied end for end to make into a train. I made my Dad’s old saw horses into pony’s by putting a blanket on them and a hank of rope for reins. But I always came back to playing with Lego and Match Box cars (a.k.a. Dinky cars) with my brother. When I ever had an allowance, 10 or 15 cents, I would buy a new Dinky Car. If it had a door or a hood that opened I would be tickled pink. Simpler days indeed. One had to use their imagination. I was one of those kids that had to be called more then once to come in for dinner. And then I would only eat a peanut butter sandwich because that is all I liked. But that is another story for another time. Hope you have enjoyed revisiting your childhood today thinking of that toy! Cheers. PEACE
