What was your favorite plaything as a child? secured online loans Do you see any connection between your life now, and your favorite childhood toy?
I can’t remember anything that stands out a lot. I had a bunch of toy cars and I played with them a lot. General cars, a truck or two, buses and even some toy bikes. I remember the old ones which go on their own once you wind them up. Having races with my friends, or even all alone, to pass the afternoons. I had a race track, with a loop, that I would play my toy bikes on.
I also remember this plaster of Paris thing that I had – came in a box with rubber/latex designs of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe characters. You mix the ingredients and pour it into the latex stuff and wait for it to harden and dry off. Then once it is done and you carefully pull them out you get a white figure of the character. You then use a small paintbrush and paint to bring them to colour. I remember this one especially because try as we might, no one could make it come out perfect. They would always break.
Sometime around 1985 or 86 my dad bought my sister and me an Atari video game box. Lousy graphics and games by today’s standards ofcourse but we loved it. Bowling, Igloo building, some fighter jet game etc etc. Perhaps a Pac-Man game in it too (can’t remember)? We loved those and I spent hours playing them.
