I'm almost 25 years old, yet I still have a bunch of my old things.. For example, I still have the baby minnie and mickey lamp my "dad" bought for my first lamp when my mom was still pregnant with me. I also have the two stuffed panda bears he gave me for my first or second, Christmas or Birthday. (Not sure why though, as I don't want anything to do with him). And I still have every single beanie baby, and stuffed animal I grew up collecting. Plus my HITCLIPs, and middle school yearbooks. .. And since I know most people here are 30+ years old.. I was wondering if there's anything you still have from your childhood.?

You don't have to worry. I still have craze for teddy bears and think they are cute. Some of my childhood toys have been kept safely and looking them from time to time brings some good memories

Yess. I have mine for my future children. As these beanie babies arent sold in stores anymore. Only online and that can be expensive.

@Courtlynn you are right. We can't find the same toys nowadays. Also the toys available nowadays are expensive but very fragile

I chuckled, as 25 is young to me, as my brother has a Grandchild your age. My old items are handmade dolls and old books. There are a lot of members over 30 and that age came and went so long ago I can't remember it.

I have a ceramic figurine my grandmother bought for me before I was born. It was broken and repaired once, before I can remember. She bought it because she knew I would be a girl, she said. I may take a picture and post a discussion about it.

I have a few things from my childhood still (and I'm old) but most have been donated. After awhile it just seems like stuff. I do have my childhood copy of "The Velveteen Rabbit".
