What were your two favorite childhood toys?
I have always loved toys of all kinds but when I think of my childhood, two things come to mind. I had a pink bunny blanket that I had from when I was a baby until I was five or six. The thing literally decinigrated from being loved so much. I had it with me all the time, and slept with it on the rare occasions that I slept as a child. (My mom says that if I ever have children she hopes they don't sleep until they are three so I get a taste of what I was like as a kid. I wasn't unhappy. I just didn't like to sleep.) That's my blankie on my head there. What can I say? I've always been a ham.
The other central theme of my childhood was Barbie. Now I know that people try to tell you how Barbie warps your mind and maybe that's true, but I just don't think that's true for me. Chances are, I would have wanted cool clothes, a house with an elevator, and a convertible anyway. (I'm just kind of high maintenance like that! Haha!) I was lucky enough to inherit my aunts' and my cousins' Barbie stuff, plus amass a collection of my very own. Of all the piece I had, my favorite thing was a four story dollhouse with an elevator inside that was bigger than I was at the time. There was just something fun about all of the clothes, the never-ending soap operas we would create, not to mention all the teeny shoes that you would inevitably lose or step on. Not too long ago, I found a re-release of a doll I vivdly remember.
