I think mine was the Transformers and the Mini 4WD. But all my toys are trashed. I am like.....my toys last for days most of the time and after couple days they all go to trash cause they are seperated in parts

When I was about 5 years old, I would watch the Zellers commercials on television. And at the time, they featured the Zellers mascot, Zeddy bear. I wanted one of those bears so very much. My parents bought me one, and it was my absolute favourite toy. I loved that thing dearly. In fact, even after I grew out of my teddy bear phase, I kept that bear and it wasn't until a few years ago that I threw him away (because he was falling apart lol)

My favourite toy when I was small was a one-foot tall black doll with a porcelain head, forearms and legs with a cloth body. I loved that doll with all my heart. One day I dropped it on the basement floor and it shattered. I was heartbroken.

Very good and interesting question!!!!!!! I've played with plenty of toys e.g. dolls, cars, piano, teddy bear etc. but the most favourite toy till today is "Dinner Sets". I had plenty of dinner sets of toys at mine childhood and kept on buying new dinner sets too. Let me tell u an interesting stroy related to dols of mine childhood. Once, my Dad bought a doll for me. I played with it few days and then broke her body parts. I seperated her arms legs and neck from her other body parts. Then i seperated her each and ever hair from her head. Lol. After that doll, my Dad did n't bring any doll for me. Lol. I myself or my elder brother bought dolls for me.
